Golf cart repair manuals are used to help operate, repair or service your golf cart. There are three different manuals available for most golf carts - an owners manual, a parts manual and a service or repair manual.
I have always purchased a repair manual for my golf cart and the investment has saved me hundreds of dollars in repairs over the years. With specific instructions on how to maintain your golf cart so less repairs are needed has also been helpful. These books are specific to your golf cart make, model and year.
1. Golf Cart Owner's Manual
An owner's manual is provided to anyone who buys a new golf cart or can be found on line for free for the Yamaha or EZ Go golf carts.
This manual focuses on tips for operating your golf cart safely, general maintenance and sometimes tips on easy repair problems. This is not the manual you want if you are looking for a golf cart repair manual.
2. Golf Cart Parts Manual
Do you need a golf cart parts manual? Not really. Many of the online golf cart parts stores will look up the part number for you, if you can tell them the name of your part and the make, model and year of your golf cart. I've never needed one even though I've ordered lots of golf cart parts on-line.
3. Golf Cart Repair Manuals
Golf cart repair manuals need to be purchased. Although they run from $50 - $150, if you want to do your own golf cart repair they are worth every penny. I've always purchased a golf cart repair manual for each golf cart that I've owned.
I always keep my Club Car service manual right on my workbench in the garage and refer to it quite often. It is a great source of information for operating, servicing and fixing your golf cart.
There are several different types of manuals for your Club Car.
The Club Car service manual is not available for free on line or in a pdf file.
Most often when someone buys a used golf cart whether it's from a golf cart dealer or a private individual, the owner's manual is nowhere to be found. Unlike a car manual that sits in your glove compartment, this golf cart manual just seems to get lost.
But just like you refer to your car manual for service recommendations or dashboard explanations, a golf cart owner's manual is good to have for reference as well.
To purchase a printed copy of an Owner’s or Operator’s Manual, or a digital or printed copy of an Illustrated Parts List, or Parts/Accessories for your Club Car vehicle, please contact your local, authorized Club Car dealer.
The owner's manual has more basic information such as an explanation of controls and indicator lights, how to operate your golf cart safely, and some basics on charging your golf cart batteries or storing your cart.
A Club Car repair manual has to be purchased. Copyright laws prohibit anyone from making or distributing copies of this manual.
A Club Car repair manual is well worth the investment if you plan to do some of your own basic troubleshooting and repairs.

To purchase your Club Car golf cart repair manual you will need to know:
1. Gas or Electric
2. The model of your Club Car - the two models are DS and Precedent
3. The year the golf cart was made
You will find the year of your golf cart by checking the serial number.
For carts that are 1981 or newer you will find the serial number on the passenger side under the glove compartment.
You can purchase a Club Car manual from a couple of different places such as Golf Car Catalog at 1-800-328-1953 or Golf Cart Trader at 1-866-324-9901.
If you like to do your own golf cart repair, one repair (done correctly that is) will pay for the manual. I use mine all the time and keep it in the garage right next to my Club Car.
The EZGO golf cart manual for owners can be found on line as a free PDF file from the E-Z-Go website. The EZ Go website calls it a service manual which is not the same as a repair manual.
To obtain a repair manual you can purchase a hard copy Ezgo golf cart manual.
Golf cart repair manuals are essential if you choose to do your own gas or electric golf cart repair. Most golf cart dealerships don't carry them, but they can order one for you. You might as well do that yourself.
If you want to purchase a hard copy EZ GO Golf Cart Manual you can find them on online, at Amazon, E-Bay or sometimes a used copy shows up on Craig's list.
Buying these golf cart repair manuals on line will cost you from sixty dollars to over one hundred dollars depending on the year, model and make of your golf cart. EZ go golf cart manuals are specific to electric or gas golf carts so be sure you have this information before making your purchase.
Amazon carries some golf cart repair manuals. You can also try Buggies Unlimited.
A Yamaha golf cart manual is an invaluable tool if you want to do some of your own golf cart repair. Wiring diagrams and detailed instructions make it possible to do many golf cart repairs yourself.
First you will need to know the make and model of your Yamaha golf cart. There are several options from a hard copy to a CD.
1. Yamaha Owner's Golf Cart Manual
An owner's manual is much like the manual you get when you buy a new car. It gives basic information about the cart such as dimensions, service and maintenance schedule, and how to operate it safely. It's a good book to have, but it won't help with repair problems.
To view or download a free owner's manual go to the Yamaha website now:
2. Yamaha Golf Cart Repair Manuals
For those who want to fix their own golf cart when it won't start, won't charge, stops intermittently or when a host of other golf cart repair problems arise, then a Yamaha golf cart repair manual is needed. The title on the cover will say "Service Manual for Yamaha Gas and Electric Golf Carts." Unlike other golf cart manuals, the Yamaha golf cart service manual combines instructions for the electric and gas models.
To get the right Yamaha golf cart manual you will need to know the model of your Yamaha golf cart and the year it was made.
You may have to put on your Sherlock Holmes hat to figure it out. Unlike Club golf carts who put the VIN number in a consistent place, Yamaha varies the location of where they have placed that little plaque. Go here for tips on locating the VIN number and how to figure out the year of your golf cart.
You can find these golf cart repair manuals on eBay, Golf Car Catalog, and Buggies Unlimited. Other resources are Golf Car Catalog at 1-800-328-1953 and Golf Cart Trader at 1-866-324-9901.
The golf cart wiring diagrams, pictures, and parts numbers make it a smart purchase.
You can check out Yamaha Golf Cart Manuals on e-Bay for a wide variety of models and years.
Although some golf cart manuals can be downloaded as a PDF file, a good ol' hard copy works best for me. I keep mine in the garage near the golf cart for a handy reference.
Buggies Unlimited, Everything Carts and Amazon offer the most convenient and comprehensive selection of hard copy manuals. Here's why you need one:
Recoup your cost by just performing one repair.
Save time and frustration with specific instructions and diagrams.
