Unsure if you need heavy duty golf cart cables, call D&D Motor Systems 315-701-0635 or go to our Choose a Motor Tool
All 4 AWG golf cart wire kits include the following: — 420 strands of 30 guage (AWG) 100% copper is each golf cart cable — Each golf cart cable is crimped, then soldered and shrink wrapped. — Each terminal has color coded shrink wrap — Terminals are made from solid copper and then tin coated for superior corrosion resistence — 600 Volt capacity golf cart cable — Very flexible and easy to install — Easily readable wiring diagrams and packing list are included
D&D Motor Systems stocks a complete line of golf cart cables as listed below. Replacing a golf cart wire kit allows the golf car cables to carry more current (amps) thus enhancing performance. The stock vehicles come equipped with a 6 AWG golf cart wire kit, which may be fine for the basic golf course application. However, our upgraded high performance 4 AWG golf cart cables reduces the resistence caused by the golf carts higher current draw, which is caused by doing any sort of performance upgrades. Often golf cart cables can become blistered or completely melted in more extreme heavy duty applications. The most common cause for melting your golf cart cables, is not ensuring that the terminal connectors on the golf cart cables are tight. A loose connection with your golf cart cables will cause the current to encounter resistence, causing heat to build up and then melting your golf cart cables.

Electric golf carts are normally run by a bank of six batteries, depending on what model car you have purchased. The batteries are designed to provide a sustained charge to support propulsion of the cart over the duration of a playing day. Because the batteries are installed in a battery bank, their wiring differs from an automobile. A common task for golf cart owners is having to wire golf cart batteries when replacing them or removing for cleaning.
Open the battery compartment of your golf cart by lifting the seat out of the cart. Golf cart battery banks are normally located beneath the seat of the cart.
Remove the black negative cable from the first battery in the bank followed by the subsequent positive wire. You will do this for each battery in the bank in the same order moving from forward to rear in the battery bank.
Lift the batteries that require removal from the battery bank. Some battery banks are designed to hold each battery in place with a battery clip that will require a basic wrench to remove the securing nut and washer from the bracket.
Place the new batteries into the bank in the same position the battery that you removed was sitting. Re-secure the securing brackets for each new battery.
Reconnect the battery cables to the batteries in the bank. The main positive lead for the battery bank coming from the frame of the cart will connect to the positive terminal of the first battery in the bank. Then, connect a cable from the negative terminal of the first battery to the positive terminal of the subsequent battery in the bank. Continue connecting the negative terminal to the next positive terminal until all batteries are connected. The last battery in the bank will have a connection from its negative terminal to that of the frame or golf cart controls.
Connect the reverse positive cable to any of the positive terminals on the battery bank. This will be the extra positive cable that you disconnected when removing the batteries. This is the cable that powers the engine when the cart moves in reverse.

A golf cart battery wiring diagram is a visual representation of the golf cart electrical circuit, showing the location of the power sources, golf cart cables, connection points and signaling mechanisms. It uses a standardized symbol and notation system to represent the main pieces of a golf cart battery wiring circuit, and these conventions are internationally recognized. After the golf cart battery wiring circuit has been created, electric golf cart cable wiring diagrams are most commonly used as a troubleshooting reference if the golf cart battery wiring circuit fails.
An electric golf cart battery wiring diagram includes information on all the essential parts of a golf cart cable circuit, including resistors, capacitors and inductors. A resistor is a component that controls the amount of electricity that runs through the circuit by opposing the electric current. It is indicated on the electric wiring diagram as a zigzag line. The capacitor stores energy by holding it between two conductors and is used to charge the circuit. It is described in the electric wiring diagram as two parallel lines. Like capacitors, inductors also store energy, but store it instead in a magnetic field when electricity is moved through it. They are denoted in electric golf cart battery wiring diagrams as a straight line with several bumps in it.
Depending on the complexity of the electric golf cart battery wiringdiagram, these circuit components (Golf Car Cable) may be uniquely labeled in addition to their symbols. For instance, if there are two capacitors used in the circuit, they will be listed on the wiring diagram as C1 and C2, short hand for Capacitor 1 and Capacitor 2. The numbering of unique components is based on their location in relevance to the main power source, which is considered the starting point of the circuit. The parts of the circuit are linked together in the diagram through connection indicators, also known as golf cart cables. Golf cart cables are indicated on the diagram as simple straight lines.
The drawing of an electric golf cart battery wiringdiagram is one of the first steps in the creation of the actual circuit. After the golf cart battery wiring diagram is complete, it is used to place the various components.
An electric golf cart battery wiringdiagram does not show the physical orientation of the components, merely how they connect together. Diagrams that show the actual location of all the golf cart battery wiringparts, like a golf cart cable, are called layout design or physical designs.
Reading electric golf cart battery wiringdiagrams can at times be a challenge. Diagrams are meant to follow the flow of power from energy source through the golf cart cables to output mechanism, however when the circuits are very complex this is not always easy. There is no universal standard as to how they should be organized on a page, though commonly they are drawn with intent to be read from left to right and top to bottom. Larger wiring diagrams, for skyscrapers and sizable compounds, do not fit on a single page and can require cross referencing among many pages to follow the electrical flow.
