Golf Cart Cable Trouble

Golf Cart Cable Trouble

The cables that connect golf cart batteries should be 6 gauge or larger.  Sometimes a person will make their own cable by squeezing on a lug with a vice.
A potential problem occurs when the cable inside the lug becomes loose and causes resistance.  If you ever see a golf cart battery terminal melt, most likely it was caused by a bad cable.

 Example of cable created by a vice at home vs a cable crimped with a ring crimper.

I found this video on golf cart battery cable.  I do not know the author or his company but his explanation of golf cart cable trouble is good.
