The operation of the accelerator pedal differs from that of an automobile. When the key switch is in the ON position,
and the Forward/Reverse switch is in either the FORWARD or REVERSE position, pressing the accelerator pedal will
automatically release the park brake and start the vehicle moving in the direction selected (forward or reverse). As
the accelerator pedal is pressed, speed will increase until full speed is reached. When the accelerator is released,
power will be cut off and the motor will stop running.
Page 16
2009 HUV4210 Owner’s Manual
Controls and Indicators
Gasoline Vehicles
After starting the engine with the key switch and placing the Forward/Reverse handle in the FORWARD position, the
vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed as the accelerator pedal is pressed. When the pedal is released it
should return to the original position and the engine should idle.
BRAKE PEDAL
The brake pedal is the large pedal on the left with the word STOP molded into it (Figure 10). To slow or stop the
vehicle, press the brake pedal with your foot (Figure 11).

Figure 11 Brake Pedal
Figure 12 Park Brake Pedal
PARK BRAKE PEDAL
The park brake pedal is the small raised portion in the upper left corner of the brake pedal. It has the word PARK
molded into it and the words PARK BRAKE marked on top of it (Figure 11). To set the park brake, press the brake
pedal firmly and tilt the park brake portion of the pedal forward with your foot (Figure 12). See following WARNING.
WARNING
• The park brake will release automatically when either the accelerator or brake pedal is pressed. The
park brake has multiple locking positions and should be firmly pressed and locked to prevent the
vehicle from rolling.
BATTERY WARNING LIGHT
Electric Vehicles Only
Electric vehicles feature a dash-mounted warning light (to the right of the key switch) that, when the vehicle is in
operation, indicates low battery voltage or, when the vehicle is being charged, indicates a charging problem. The
warning light is controlled by the onboard computer.
When the vehicle is in operation, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminate if:
• Batteries’ voltage drops below 48 volts when there is no load on the batteries (the vehicle is stopped and there
are no accessories on).
2009 HUV4210 Owner’s Manual
Page 17
Controls and Indicators
• Batteries have discharged to less than 25% of rated capacity.
If the warning light illuminates when the vehicle is operating, there will be enough power remaining to drive the vehicle
for approximately 30 minutes. However, the vehicle should be charged at the first opportunity. If the warning light
illuminates and the vehicle is unable to operate for 30 minutes, have your Husqvarna distributor/dealer check the
vehicle for a possible battery or electrical system problem.
When the batteries receive an incomplete charge because 1) the DC power cord is disconnected, 2) AC power
to the charger is interrupted, 3) automatic charger shut-off occurs after 16 hours of operation, or 4) the charger
malfunctions, the warning light will indicate as follows:
• The warning light will not illuminate if the charge is 90% or more complete. The onboard computer will retain in
memory the amount of charge needed to fully replenish the batteries and will complete the charge during the
next charge cycle.
• When the charger is unplugged, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated for 10 seconds if the charge
is less than 90% complete but the vehicle has enough power for approximately 30 minutes of operation. This will
alert the operator that the vehicle may be used, but that it must be charged to completion as soon as possible.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, with 4 second intervals if the charger times out at 16
hours and the batteries are not sufficiently charged. See the battery charger owner’s manual. This indicates an
abnormal charge cycle. The charger and batteries should be checked by your Husqvarna distributor/dealer.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, with 4 second intervals during a charge cycle (DC plug is
still connected) if AC power to the charger is interrupted. The light will go out when AC power is restored.
LED Light: In addition to the warning light, there is an infrared LED in the dash light assembly, which transmits an
infrared signal from the onboard computer (OBC). This signal is received by the optional Communication Display
Module (Husqvarna 603 00 18-63), which provides information on the condition of the vehicle and batteries.
TOW/RUN SWITCH
Electric Vehicles Only
WARNING
• Place Tow/Run switch in the TOW position before disconnecting or connecting the batteries. Failure to
heed this warning could result in a battery explosion or severe personal injury.
• When the Tow/Run switch is in the TOW position, all motor braking functions, including walk-away
braking, are disabled.
Electric vehicles are equipped with a Tow/Run switch, located under the seat just above the Forward/Reverse switch
(Figure 13). The switch must be in the RUN position in order to operate the vehicle. When the switch is in the TOW
position, power to the vehicle electrical components is turned off and the vehicle will not operate. See following NOTE.
NOTE: After placing the Tow/Run switch in the TOW position, allow 10 seconds to elapse before switching back to
the RUN position.
After placing the Tow/Run switch in the RUN position, allow 10 seconds to elapse before operating the vehicle.
The Tow/Run switch should be placed in the TOW position under the following conditions:
• Before Towing the Vehicle: Place the Tow/Run switch in the TOW position to disable all motor braking functions,
thus preventing possible damage that could occur to the vehicle or electrical components if the vehicle is towed
while the walk-away braking function is operating.
• Before Disconnecting or Connecting Battery Cables: Place the Tow/Run switch in the TOW position to turn
off power to the vehicle electrical system, thus preventing severe arcing and possible battery explosion as the
battery cables are disconnected.
• For Long Term Storage: Place the Tow/Run switch in the TOW position to turn off power to the vehicle electrical
system, thus preventing vehicle electrical components from discharging the batteries.

Pre-Operation and Daily Safety Checklist
LOW OIL WARNING LIGHT
Gasoline Vehicles Only
The gasoline golf car is equipped with a low oil warning light (1), located on the dash panel to the right of the key
switch (Figure 15). If the warning light comes on, oil should be checked and added to the engine as necessary before
continuing to use the vehicle. The vehicle should never be driven with the low oil warning light remaining on. If the
warning light goes on and off, you may proceed, but oil should be added at the first opportunity. If the oil level is correct
and the warning light stays on, have a trained technician check the vehicle. See following CAUTION.
CAUTION
• Failure to add oil immediately when the low oil warning light stays on may result in permanent
engine damage.
HEADLIGHT CONTROL
The headlight control (2) is located on the dash to the left of the key switch (Figure 15). Pull out to turn the lights on,
push in to turn the lights off. The headlights operate on 12 volts DC from the battery. See following NOTE.
NOTE: Using the headlights for extended periods of time without the engine running, or with the engine idling, will
discharge the battery.
12-VOLT OUTLET ACCESSORY
Some vehicles are provided with a 12-volt outlet, protected with a 10 amp fuse, located in the fuse box under the seat.
To use, push in a cord designed for this type of outlet.
Be sure to disconnect electronic devices from the accessory outlet before the vehicle batteries are charged. See
following CAUTION.
CAUTION
• Do not leave electronic devices connected to the accessory outlet while the vehicle batteries are being
charged. The voltage output can fluctuate from 12 volts to 19 volts while the vehicle batteries are
charging, and this voltage fluctuation can damage some electronic devices.
To remove a power cord from the accessory outlet, rotate it counterclockwise, align the arrows and pull the cord out
of the outlet.
Extended use of this accessory can cause the batteries to become heavily discharged. If the vehicle batteries become
deeply discharged, charge the batteries as instructed in the owner’s manual appropriate to the vehicle, or contact
your local Husqvarna dealer for instructions.
Inspect the accessory outlet periodically to ensure the electrical connection is clean and free of corrosion.
PRE-OPERATION AND DAILY SAFETY CHECKLIST

PERFORMANCE INSPECTION
After you have familiarized yourself with the vehicle controls and have read and understood the driving instructions,
take the vehicle for a test drive.
Use the following checklist, in conjunction with the Pre-Operation and Daily Safety Checklist, as a guide to inspect the
vehicle and check daily for proper operation. Any problems should be corrected by a Husqvarna distributor/dealer or a
trained technician.
All Vehicles
• Forward/Reverse control: Check for proper operation. See Controls and Indicators on page 14.
• Brakes: Be sure the brakes function properly. When brake pedal is fully pressed under moderate pressure,
it should not go more than halfway to the floor, and vehicle should come to a smooth, straight stop. If the pedal
goes more than halfway to the floor, or if the vehicle swerves or fails to stop, have the brake system checked and
adjusted as required. Brake adjustment must be maintained so that the brake pedal cannot be pressed to the
floor under any circumstance.
• Park brake: When latched, the park brake should lock the wheels and hold the vehicle stationary (on an incline of
20% or less). It should release when either the accelerator or brake pedal is pressed.
• Reverse buzzer: The reverse buzzer should sound as a warning when the Forward/Reverse handle or switch is in
the REVERSE position.
• Steering: The vehicle should be easy to steer and should not have any play in the steering wheel.
• General: Listen for any unusual noises such as squeaks or rattles. Check the vehicle’s ride and performance.
Have a Husqvarna distributor/dealer or a trained technician investigate anything unusual.

Driving Instructions
Electric Vehicles
• Accelerator: With the key switch in the ON position and the Forward/Reverse switch in the FORWARD position, as
the accelerator pedal is pressed, the motor should start and the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed.
When the pedal is released it should return to the original position and the motor should rotate freely or go into motor
braking mode. See Pedal Up Motor Braking below. All Husqvarna vehicles operate at reduced speed in reverse.
• Walk-Away Braking: With the vehicle parked on level ground and the park brake disengaged, place the Tow/Run
switch in the RUN position and attempt to push the vehicle. Motor braking should engage and cause resistance to
rolling (moving at no more than 1 to 3 mph) (1.5 to 4.8 km/h) with the Forward/Reverse switch in any position.
When walk-away braking is engaged, the reverse buzzer should emit a distinct pattern of beeps. See following
WARNING.
WARNING
• Walk-away braking will not limit vehicle speed to 1 mph (1.6 km/h) on very steep grades. Do not
operate vehicle on slopes exceeding 20% grades.
• Pedal Up Motor Braking (adjustable on IQ System vehicles): Accelerate the vehicle to full speed and then
release the accelerator pedal. Motor braking should quickly and smoothly slow the vehicle to approximately 11 mph
(17.7 km/h). Motor braking will disengage when vehicle slows to 11 mph (17.7 km/h). This feature is adjustable for
IQ System vehicles only. Contact your local Husqvarna dealer/distributor to inquire about this adjustable feature.
• Pedal Down Motor Braking: Accelerate down an incline with the accelerator pedal pressed. When the vehicle
reaches maximum programmed speed, motor braking should engage and limit the vehicle to its maximum
programmed speed. On very steep grades, the vehicle may slightly exceed its maximum programmed speed,
requiring use of the brake pedal.
Gasoline Vehicles
• Accelerator: With the key switch in the ON position and the Forward/Reverse switch in the FORWARD position, as
the accelerator pedal is pressed, the engine should start and the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed.
When the pedal is released it should return to the original position and the engine should stop. All Husqvarna
vehicles operate at reduced speed in reverse.
• Governor: Check maximum speed of the vehicle. The vehicle should operate at 17 mph (27 km) on a level surface.

BATTERIES – ELECTRIC VEHICLES
See General Warnings on page 10.
DANGER
• Battery – Explosive gases! Do not smoke. Keep sparks and flames away from the vehicle and service
area. Ventilate when charging or operating vehicle in an enclosed area. Wear a full face shield and
rubber gloves when working on or near batteries.
• Charge batteries in a well-ventilated area only. Batteries emit hydrogen while being charged. Hydrogen
is an explosive gas and must never exceed a level of 2% of the air.
• Battery – Poison! Contains acid! Causes severe burns. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing.
Antidotes:
– External: Flush with water. Call a physician immediately.
– Internal: Drink large quantities of milk or water followed with milk of magnesia or vegetable
oil. Call a physician immediately.
– Eyes: Flush with water for 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
WARNING
• Wear safety glasses or approved eye protection when servicing the vehicle or battery charger. Wear a
full face shield and rubber gloves when working on or near batteries.
• Use insulated tools when working near batteries or electrical connections. Use extreme caution to
avoid shorting of components or wiring.
CAUTION
• On all electric vehicles, turn off all accessories before charging batteries.
NOTE: Recycle or dispose of discarded batteries in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
Husqvarna electric vehicles use deep-cycle batteries. Automotive batteries should never be used.
New batteries will not deliver their full capabilities until they have been discharged and recharged 20 to 50 times. To
obtain the maximum service life from new batteries, restrict vehicles with new batteries to one hour of operation
between charges for the first two months vehicle is in service. Batteries should be fully charged before first use of new
vehicle, before first use of a vehicle after storage, and before use each day.
BATTERY CARE
To keep batteries in good working condition, follow this maintenance program on a regular basis:
Page 36
2009 HUV4210 Owner’s Manual
Batteries – Electric Vehicles
1.
The batteries should be kept clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution
of baking soda and water (1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per gallon (3.8 L) of water). Rinse solution off of the
batteries. Do not allow this solution to enter the battery. Be sure terminals are tight. Let the terminals dry and
then coat with Battery Terminal Protector Spray (Husqvarna 603 00 00-03). See following NOTE.
NOTE: Dispose of waste water properly.
2.
The electrolyte level in the batteries should be checked weekly (Figure 20). Add water only after charging unless
the electrolyte level is below the top of the plates. In this case, add just enough water to cover the plates, charge
and then check the level again. Never charge batteries if plates are exposed above electrolyte level. For best
battery life, add only distilled water. See following CAUTION and NOTE.
CAUTION
• Do not overfill the batteries.
NOTE: A battery watering gun or bottle is available at many auto parts dealers.
3.
The hold-down straps should be tight enough so that the batteries do not move while the vehicle is in motion,
but not so tight as to crack or buckle the battery case. Tighten hold-down retaining nuts to 40 in-lb (4.5 N·m).
The terminal connections should be clean and tight, and any worn insulation or frayed wires should be replaced.
Tighten battery terminals to 110 in-lb (12.4 N·m). See following WARNING.
WARNING
• If battery wire terminals are damaged or corroded, replace or clean them as necessary. Failure to
do so may cause them to overheat during operation and could result in fire, property damage, or
personal injury.
4.
After use, the batteries should be placed on charge. The batteries should never be left discharged any longer
than absolutely necessary (do not leave discharged overnight).

Battery Charger – Electric Vehicles
BATTERY CHARGER – ELECTRIC VEHICLES
DANGER
• The charging area must be ventilated. Hydrogen level in the air must never exceed 2%. The total
volume of air in the charging area must be changed five times per hour. Exhaust fans should be
located at the highest point of the roof. Contact a local HVAC engineer.
• Do not charge the vehicle batteries with the vehicle covered or enclosed. Any enclosure or cover
should be removed or unzipped and pulled back when batteries are being charged. An accumulation
of hydrogen gas could result in an explosion.
WARNING
• Only trained technicians should repair or service the charger. Contact your nearest Husqvarna
distributor/dealer.
• Each charger should have its own dedicated 15 or 20 ampere separately protected (circuit breaker or
fuse) single phase branch circuit, in accordance with all applicable electrical codes for the location.
• Connect the charger AC supply cord to a properly grounded, three-wire outlet of the proper voltage
and frequency as shown on the charger.
• Do not use an adapter to plug the charger with a three-prong plug into a two-prong outlet. Improper
connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a fire or an electrical shock.
• An extension cord or electrical outlet must accept a three-prong plug. Extension cord should be a
three-wire No. 12 AWG (American Wire Gauge) or No. 14 SWG (British Standard Wire Gauge), and be
as short as possible. The use of improper extension cord could result in fire or an electrical shock.
• Do not operate the charger if it has received a sharp blow, was dropped, or otherwise damaged
in any way.
• Have worn, cut, or damaged power cords or wires replaced immediately.
• Do not use near fuels, grain dust, solvents, thinners, or other flammables. Chargers can ignite
flammable materials and vapors.
• Do not expose to rain or any liquid. Keep the charger dry.
• Never push objects of any kind into the charger through cabinet slots. They may touch dangerous
voltage points or cause an electrical short circuit that could result in fire or electrical shock.
• Do not connect a stationary charger to the receptacle if the charger cord, plug, or the vehicle
receptacle is broken, damaged, or does not make a good electrical connection. Fire or personal injury
can result. Have a qualified technician replace the parts.
• When the charger is on, the charger DC cord may be disconnected from the vehicle receptacle slowly.
Jerking or pulling the DC cord out quickly could cause arcing and burning that could damage the plug
and receptacle and could cause batteries to explode.
• Do not block or cover the charger ventilation slots. The slots provide ventilation and protect the
charger from overheating.
• Do not allow clothing, blankets, or other material to cover the charger.
• Do not allow the charger to operate for more than 30 minutes at 19 or more amperes.
• Install surge arrestors on incoming AC power lines. Surge arrestors will help protect electrical
components in the charger and on the vehicle from all but direct or close lightning strikes.
NOTE: Because the vehicle’s onboard computer (OBC) has a storage charge feature that automatically checks and
recharges the batteries as necessary every 15 days, the charger can remain plugged to an electric vehicle
throughout the storage period.
At one hour and at two hours into the charge cycle, the charger will shut off in order to run a self-diagnostic
program (ammeter will drop to zero). Charging will resume in a few moments (ammeter returns to previous
rate of charge).
Page 38
2009 HUV4210 Owner’s Manual
Battery Charger – Electric Vehicles
Each electric vehicle is supplied with a fully automatic battery charger as standard equipment AC cord to each charger
is to be connected to a source capable of supplying 15 amperes minimum per charger.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, the battery charger must be grounded. The charger is equipped with an AC electric
cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding type plug. The AC plug must be connected to an
appropriate receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and all
local codes and ordinances. See the owner’s manual supplied with the charger for specific operating instructions
before using the charger.
The use of an extension cord with the charger should be avoided. If an extension cord must be used, use a
three-conductor no. 12 AWG (American Wire Gauge) or no. 14 SWG (British Standard Wire Gauge), heavy-duty cord
with ground, properly wired and in good electrical condition. Keep it as short as possible (no more than 12 feet (3.7
m)). Place all cords so they will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subject to damage or stress.
Ensure that the charger ventilation slots are unobstructed and that there is adequate ventilation.
CHARGING BATTERIES
WARNING
• Be sure all wire connections at the receptacle and the fuse link are clean and tight.
• Do not rock or bend the plug. To connect the charger plug to the vehicle receptacle, grasp the plug
handle and push the plug straight into the receptacle (Figure 21).
• Do not pull on the DC cord (Figure 22). Do not twist, rock or bend the plug. To disconnect the charger
plug from the vehicle receptacle, grasp the plug by the handle and pull the plug straight out of the
receptacle.
• Do not connect a charger to the receptacle if the charger cord, plug, or the vehicle receptacle is
broken, damaged in any manner, or does not make a good electrical connection. Fire or personal
injury can result. Have it replaced by a qualified service person immediately.
• Failure to follow these instructions could result in damage to the charger cord, the plug, and (or)
the vehicle receptacle.
• Do not use a charger if:
– The plug is too loose or does not make a good connection.
– The plug and receptacle feel hotter than normal during charge.
– The plug pins or receptacle contacts are bent or corroded.
– The plug, receptacle, or cords are cut, worn, have any exposed wires or are damaged in any way.
• Using the charger with any of the above symptoms could result in a fire, property damage, personal
injury, or death.
NOTE: When temperatures fall below 65 °F (18.3 °C), batteries charged in unheated areas should be placed on
charge as soon as possible after use. Batteries are warmest immediately after use, and cold batteries
require more time to fully charge.
Insert the charger DC plug into the vehicle receptacle. The charger will turn on two to ten seconds later (Figure 21).
When inserting the DC plug, align the raised guide on the plug with the guide slot in the receptacle and push
straight in slowly.
Husqvarna battery chargers interact with the vehicle onboard computer. The computer records the amount of energy
consumed during vehicle use. While the charger is plugged in, the vehicle’s control circuit is locked out, preventing
operation of the vehicle as well as the possibility of consequent damage to the charger and the vehicle.
Once the lockout is actuated, the charger turns on. The onboard computer then records the amount of energy being
returned to the batteries. When the optimum amount of energy needed to replenish the batteries is returned, the
charger will shut off. The control circuit lockout remains activated until the charger plug is disconnected from the vehicle.

Husqvarna electric vehicles are supplied with a PowerDrive battery charger (Husqvarna 603 00 20-09). Use only
PowerDrive chargers with this electric vehicle.
As long as the charger is allowed to shut off by itself, the batteries will be fully charged. Overcharging and
undercharging will normally be prevented.
Batteries should be put on charge even if they have been used for only a short period (10 minutes). The charger is
automatic and will turn off when batteries are fully charged. If the charger does not seem to be operating properly, or if
the batteries seem weak, contact your local Husqvarna distributor/dealer.
PLUG AND RECEPTACLE
The charger cord, plug, and receptacle are wear items and should be inspected daily. Visually inspect them for cracks,
loose connections, and frayed wiring; they must be replaced when worn or damaged. If charger plug or receptacle
show signs of corrosion or the plug is difficult to insert or remove, the receptacle contacts and plug terminals should
be cleaned with a good electrical contact cleaner or lightly sprayed with WD-40® brand spray lubricant. The plug
should then be inserted and removed several times to ensure ease of insertion, ease of removal, and good electrical
contact. See following NOTE.
NOTE: If the warning tag has been damaged or removed from the DC cord, have it replaced immediately.

CLEANING THE VEHICLE
Husqvarna vehicles are equipped with ABS front bodies and TPO for rear bodies. Use only commercially available
automotive cleaners with a sponge or soft cloth for normal cleaning. A garden hose at normal residential water
pressure is adequate.
Husqvarna does not recommend any type of pressure washing or steam cleaning. Such a process (especially if the
vehicle has the rear body removed) will expose electrical components to moisture. Moisture entering electrical
components can result in water damage and subsequent component failure.
Use non-abrasive wax products. Battery acid, fertilizers, tars, asphalt, creosote, paint, or chewing gum should be
removed immediately to prevent possible stains.
The seats of the vehicle will last longer with proper cleaning. Use a solution of 10% liquid soap and warm water applied
with a soft cloth. For imbedded dirt, a soft bristle brush may be used. For heavy soiling, difficult stains or scratches,
blemishes, or other body damage, see the appropriate maintenance and service manual.
NOTE: Dispose of waste water properly.
ACCESSORIES

the part will be repaired or replaced by Husqvarna.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
- As the vehicle engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your
owner’s manual. Husqvarna recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your vehicle engine, but
Husqvarna cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all
scheduled maintenance.
- As the vehicle engine owner, you should however be aware that Husqvarna may deny you warranty coverage if
vehicle engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.

1. WARRANTY:

Husqvarnas application for certification. The warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered
to an ultimate purchaser or first placed into service. The warranty period is two years.

under warranty will be warranted for the remainder of the period.
(2) Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the written instructions supplied is warranted
for the warranty period stated above. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the
remaining warranty period.

scheduled replacement point for the part.

warranty of any warranted part.

parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such parts.
(9) Any replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty maintenance or repairs and must be
provided without charge to the owner. Such use will not reduce the warranty obligations of Husqvarna.
(10) Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources Board may not be used. The use of any
non-exempted add-on or modified parts by the ultimate purchaser will be grounds for disallowing a warranty claims.

modified part. *Husqvarna, its authorized dealers, or a service agency approved by Husqvarna.
