How to Disconnect Golf Cart Batteries

By Jackson Lewis

One of the most popular means of propulsion for golf carts is an all-electric system. An electric golf cart uses lead-acid batteries that are connected in a bank of batteries. Typical golf cart battery banks are comprised of six batteries. The batteries are designed to be charged overnight and when not in use. Golf cart owners often have to disconnect the batteries for cleaning and maintenance.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Put on your acid resistant work gloves before starting the battery removal process.
Step 2
Disconnect the battery bank positive lead from the positive golf cart body main power connection with the wrench. After the positive lead is disconnected, then disconnect the battery bank's ground wire from the primary golf cart body connection.
Step 3
Remove the connection from the first battery in the bank's positive terminal that is connected to the subsequent battery's negative terminal. Then, move to the next battery and follow the same steps until all of the batteries in the bank are disconnected from each other.
Step 4
Lift the batteries from the bank one at a time and place on a level surface away from the golf cart.
