  • Yamaha 48v battery cable question?

    On my 2012 YDRE cart, I have been able to get 8 years out of the Trojans that come with it and now I need to replace them and the cables.

    My question is can I use standard automotive cables to replace the ones I have on the battery bank? I have bought some cables from Advanced auto parts that are the same gauge #4 rated SAE J1127 but I am not sure if the voltage rating is the same for a golf car vs a car?

    Golf cart 48v Car 12v

    When I look at the spec's for SAE J1127 I see some rated at 60v and some rated at 600v. But one of the cables I pulled off did say it was SAE J1127?

    And these are switch to starter battery cables so both ends do have the crimped lug on the end.

    Or would I just be better to go to the dealer and buy my cables?


    Thanks
    Don

    Best to replace with golf cart wires as they have more, finer strands of wire than typical auto cables. But auto cables will work. Just replaced my 8 gauge cables with 4 gauge for improved capacity.

      Yes, you can use the automotive cables as long as they are rated for at least 60V. Since your cables are gauge #4 and SAE J1127, they should be fine for your 48V golf cart. However, for complete peace of mind, getting cables specifically designed for golf carts from a dealer is advisable.
