DIY Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Golf Cart Running All Season

Posted in Golf Carts

The last thing you want when you are on the 18th hole or on a backwoods trail is for your golf cart to leave you stranded. Just like any vehicle, your golf cart needs maintenance to keep it running in tip-top condition. Preventive maintenance can help ensure you don’t end up with a dead battery or tire problem when you are outside enjoying your day. Here are some DIY tips and tricks to keep up on golf cart repairs and maintenance to make your vehicle run great all season.

  • Battery maintenance. If you have an electric golf cart, battery maintenance is essential. Without a well-charged battery, your day out on the course could be cut short. Make sure to fully charge after each use and keep your batteries full of water for longer life.
  • Check your tires. Like a car or truck, you want to make sure your tires are in good shape before each outing. While a flat tire or low tread is not as dangerous as on a road vehicle, it still is important to replace them when needed.
  • Keep up with tune-ups. Gas-powered and electric models both need tune-ups. Gas-powered carts need oil changes and similar tune-ups to your car. Electric motors are simpler, but still need maintenance. Check with your local golf cart dealer for tune-up kits you can perform at home, or bring your cart in for routine tune-ups at your dealer.

With a little maintenance on your golf cart, you can avoid having to tow your golf cart off the course or out of the woods. Keep up with preventive care to make your golf cart last all season with no troubles during your outings.
