Default Yamaha gas cart sporadic stalling problem

Hi Scott,

I have a 2012 Yamaha gas golf cart with a sporadic and frustrating stalling problem. What happens is, when driving in stop and go traffic or stopped at an intersection, the cart will occasionally stall out. Although I am able to eventually get it restarted within a minute or so, I am concerned about the possibility of getting stranded at some point.

My dealer's technicians have in the past twice replaced something called an actuator and just recently my battery. Unfortunately, the problem continues, but the technician has yet to recreate the problem at their location and states a thorough check of the vehicle does not show a problem.

Can you help?

This is our first time living in Florida and buying a cart. The colors we are interested in for a Yahama cart only have matching vinyl seats. The new "Simtek" (sorry don't know spelling) seem that they would truly be cooler in the Florida heat but have limited color choices and none that coordinate well with the cart color we were going to get. Wondering if the cooler fabric is such a difference that we should rethink our cart color choice.

My battery charger (it says 1999) seems not generating to my club car batteries. Not sure whether it is the charger or the electric circuit issue in my 12 years old cart. How do I check if the charger does generate or not? My friends have Yamaha carts so I cannot use my charger on any of them.

I have a 2007 electric Club Car whose lights,horn, and brake light do not work. I am thinking it needs a fuse, am I right? Where can I go to have this fixed, without taking the cart too far. And, can I buy a fuse at Ace Hardware and install it myself? Thank you for any help...R. Buhrig

I have an electric Golf cart that came when we purchased the house. My mother is unable to plug it in and fill up the batteries. I would like to sell it and get a used gas cart. How do I know what a fair price for my cart would be? How do I find out the year ect? It is in good condition and it has been refurbished. I am going to have it tuned up and then I would like to sell it. I want to charge what is fair. I hope you can help me.
