- Holes on batteries are not connected to each other so be sure to check each one.
- DO NOT CHARGE OR OPERATE IF WATER LEVEL IS BELOW THE PLATES!
- If plates are exposed, pour just enough distilled water to cover plates in each cell then charge car. Once car is charged, fill each cell to proper water level.
- Water levels will rise as batteries are charging which is why it is important to fill to proper level after batteries are fully charged.
- Batteries should be gently rinsed to keep corrosion down as well as to keep dirt and other obstructions from falling in while batteries are being filled. (Always check that all caps are on tight before rinsing).
- Acid and or corrosion can be neutralized using baking soda mixed with water, again, be sure caps are on tight before applying.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How often should I charge the car?
When you are done driving for the day, the car should be put on charge. It is recommended to place the car in the tow position when the car is in charge mode
- How long do the batteries last on a single charge?
Trojan batteries are rated 120 minutes at full pedal down. Range varies based upon driving habits, weight on car, weather conditions, ect. Low battery status indicator (the amber light) will illuminate when there is 20% charge remaining.
- What is the life expectancy on the batteries?
With proper maintenance, 4-6 years.
- How often do I water the batteries? What is the correct water level?
Water levels should be checked on a monthly basis. Water should cover plates and be just below the bottom casing of the battery. For a single point water system, prime hand pump with water, plug in hose, and start pumping until the bulb is hard. (CHARGE CAR FULLY BEFORE FILLING WITH WATER, WATER WILL RISE AS CAR IS CHARING WHICH CAN CAUSE OVERFLOW.)
- When should I put my car in tow?
Anytime you are charging your car, place it in tow. If the car needs to be towed, put it in tow. This releases the motor from engaging which allows the car to move freely and shuts down all electrical components on the vehicle.
- How often do I need to have the car serviced?
With normal usage and proper maintenance, it is recommended to have the car serviced annually by your golf car professional.
