Golf cart lights make it possible to use your cart at any time. Besides serving a purpose they can add style and a custom look. If your cart doesn't have any lights add them as an aftermarket golf cart accessory. They also need to be replaced periodically and it is an easy job for anyone to do.
Golf cart lights doing double duty with cutouts and a light bar means there's no road too dark for this golf cart.
Golf cart headlights can be purchased for different reasons.
1. Add them to a golf cart that has none
2. Replace existing incandescent lights with LED or halogen bulbs
3. Upgrade to larger and brighter lights
Headlights are specific to a golf cart make, model and year but
that doesn't mean there is only one light kit option. Fortunately the old incandescent bulbs are being replaced by either halogen or LED lights. Here you can see how creative golf cart owners get with their lights.
They can be placed in several different locations:
1. As cutouts in the front cowl
2. Attached to the front cowl
3. Placed under the front cowl
Lights come in a variety of sizes and styles. A solid bar across the bottom or choose from small or large headlights attached to the front body.
Newer carts have replaced their incandescent lights with halogen or LED lights. These bulbs last much longer and won't burn out. Another benefit to these golf cart lights is that they pull less current than the old lights, which means there is less drain on your battery and more distance to your ride.
Lights installed right into the body look more finished and natural.
Cutting into the body is not that difficult. All cutout light kits come with a template. Measure and mark it with a dry erase marker and you can have a professional looking job.
People often use a Dremel with a straight drill-like cutter or a saber saw to make their cuts.
Be sure to read your install instructions completely before starting your project so you don't accidently blow your bulbs - because if you do, the warranty is void.
If you don't want to cut into your golf cart, you can attach lights to the front cowl. They may not look as great, but hey - they work and there are some people who prefer this look.
Most of the newer headlights now use LED bulbs - much brighter and they last longer. You can save some money by getting a golf cart light kit that includes the front and tail lights.Universal Golf Cart LED Light Kits
Golf cart light bars can be place in multiple different spots on the front cowl. Here are some ideas...
The light bar option makes for an easy install. No need to cut the front cowl - just place the lights under it.
The bar light kit is available for almost all models of golf carts.
Many golf cart owners add a light bar for additional light for night driving.
In addition some owners like to place a light bar on the roof of the golf cart for additional illumination.YITAMOTOR 24 Inch Light Bar Waterproof Dual Row LED Light with Wiring Harness, 120W - 10,800 Lumens

One of my favorite Club Car accessories on our 2006 refurbished golf cart is the headlights. I noticed a difference right away. The new LED bulbs are so much brighter than my old incandescent lights and will last much longer too.
Our golf cart headlights get used frequently since we live in a golf cart community and use our cart in the evenings to grocery shop, go out to dinner or stop by a friend's house.
It's no surprise that they need to be replaced periodically. Depending on the make and model of your golf cart and the type of headlights you have, you may have to replace the whole headlight instead of just the bulb.
Golf cart lights can be purchased as a kit that includes the headlights and the brake lights. The model of your Club Car will determine which kit to get:
