The “Up” direction button makes the cart walking forward. It also
provides acceleration.9 step to accelerate forward. Press this button
each time, golf caddies accelerate once, reach to top speed.
The “Down” direction button makes the cart move in reverse. It is
necessary to bring the cart to a complete standstill before changing
directions – forward to reverse – or reverse to forward. This button is

Start Up Remote System
When using the remote function first time, you must establish the connection between
handset and controller.
During the first 3 seconds when you start the golf cart, press any button on the handset
until golf cart starts moving.
The remote system will then be active.
Adjustment function:
The two top buttons marked with SET and SAVE are be used if it is necessary to adjust
the alignment of the cart.
Alignment adjustment:
The two buttons at the top of the transmitter are only for emergency use if it is decided
that the alignment of the cart is permanently and drastically pulling to one side or the other
on flat ground. Before making any adjustments with these buttons it should be understood
that a golf cart with a very narrow wheelbase and with an uneven – and sometimes shifting
– load will probably never be able to maintain a forward direction and a straight line –
mainly because even a small directional bias at the start quickly magnifies to a much larger
directional deviation. Indeed the whole point of having a remote operation cart is to be able
to ignore the exact position of the cart – as long as it is within the fairway and clear of other
golfers and water hazards. The user has the ability to bring his cart and clubs over to him
when he gets up to his ball.
To initiate this process start the golf cart moving forward, and then press the “set”
button once.
Pressing the “left arrow” button one time will cause the left-hand drive wheel to reduce
in speed by 1.5%
Pressing the same button twice will produce a speed reduction of 2%
This process can be repeated up to a differential reduction of 15%
All of the above applies equally to the “right arrow” button
Having completed this process pressing the save button will save the chosen settings
If the “set” button is pressed – followed by the “save” button, and neither the “right” or
“left” arrow buttons have been pressed, then the power to both drive-wheels will be
equal.

Transmitter use
•
Your transmitter has been designed for ease of use whether you are left or right
handed.
•
Take time to practice the difference between a single touch of a key and a prolonged
push especially with left and right functions.
•
Never store the transmitter in a pocket with metal or sharp objects, or loose change.
Never allow the transmitter to get immersed in water.
•
Because of the need for a removable battery cover, the transmitter is not waterproof, so
when playing in the rain it is important to store it in a dry place like a pocket, and to
protect it during use.
•
The transmitter takes a replaceable battery, you will need to carefully remove the
belt-clip and then slide off the battery compartment cover to replace it.
•
Do not use a rechargeable battery in the handset as these batteries do not give
sufficient voltage for this transmitter
7
Drive wheels
The drive wheels are “handed”. There is a left and a right wheel – these are marked with an “R”
and a “L”. This ties up with the Right and Left hand side of the cart, when viewed from the rear. To
attach the wheels, push the black button sideways and then slide the wheel on as far as possible.
It will engage into the slotted groove on the axle, and the hub to the drive-coupling. Once in the
place, release the button and pull the wheel outwards slightly to lock in place. You will hear a
small click.
Page 13 of 17
Remote Control Golf Cart User Manual
When the voltage of the battery is too low to operate the cart (below 10.8 volts) the
controller will cut power supply to the motors. In order to push the cart manually it is
necessary to move the wheels out by one notch on the drive axle.
If you want to pull the
cart you will also need to change the wheels over to the other side of the cart. Securely
locate part A (the drive coupling) into part B (the wheel hub) for the normal drive
connection. For the freewheel mode depress the small latch on the outside of the wheel
catch mechanism - twist and pull the wheel (this moves the drive coupling out from the
hub) and locate it into the outer axle slot. The wheel should spin freely.
8 Use & Maintenance
Battery
1) Regularly check to see if the battery is damaged
2) Keep the battery surface clean, and check underneath the battery cover to make sure
that no dirt or water has attached to it.
3) Check the battery connections – underneath the small plastic covers – for any signs of
corrosion or bad connection.
4) Check that the wires from the battery cover are firmly fixed to the terminal posts.
5) After use always place the battery on charge – in warm dry conditions.
6) If the cart will be used again soon then you can leave the battery on charge until that time.
Always allow sufficient charging time to completely charge the battery – overnight or 6 to
8-hours should be sufficient.

Remote Control Golf Cart User Manual
7) If the battery is to be stored – for instance over winter – and not used it can be
disconnected. If disconnected for storage always recharge the battery completely at
intervals – at least once every 30 to 45 days. Allowing the charge of the battery to drop to
a completely exhausted state can shorten the life of the battery.
8) Do NOT charge the battery with a different charger than the unit supplied with the cart.
9) If stored, place the battery on a wooden shelf – not on a concrete floor. Keep away from
fire – flames – heaters – and do not allow it to be in a temperature of over 45 deg C (113
deg F)
Charger
1) Do not attempt to open the case of the charger
2) Only use the charger to charge the battery of this golf cart
3) Operate only indoors – in clean dry conditions
4) Immediately remove from the mains electrical supply in the event of the charger
overheating
(over 70 deg C)
Cart
1) Clean the whole cart as convenient. Remove any caked mud and grass cuttings.
2) Store it indoors in dry conditions
3) Always remove the battery from the cart as soon as possible.
Fault Instruction (When the screen displays the following)
Mode 5
Indicates a fault in the sensor system from the drive system to the
controller. Could be a faulty sensor or could be a problem with the wheel not engaging
properly.
Mode 6
General problem alert. Turn cart off and restart.
Mode 7
indicates the cart is in the status of overload. Please do not keep this
situation too long. Shut down or push to assist. Meanwhile the cart can reduce the
speed (electricity output) to release the overload.
Mode 8
Indicates the cart is in the status of being badly overloaded by weight.
Page 15 of 17
