- 1). Obtain the owner's manual for your golf cart. This will tell you the regular maintenance and servicing the cart requires and will have a troubleshooting section to help you diagnose the most common faults.
- 2). Ensure necessary servicing and maintenance checks are carried out in a timely manner. This will prevent many faults from occurring and take away the need for potentially costly repairs
- 3). Check tires regularly. Improperly inflated tires can cause uneven wear, an uneven ride and handling problems.
- 4). Clean battery terminals and on a gas-powered cart clean the spark plugs. The most common reason for a cart not starting is a problem with the battery. A badly running gas engine with coughing or uneven firing is most commonly brought about by fouled or dirty plugs.
