My EZGO Turn Signals are not working anymore

I’m trying to figure out why my EZGO golf cart’s turn signals have stopped working. I’ve tried a few DIY fixes, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone offer some guidance?


I found that checking the fuse box and replacing any blown fuses did the trick for me and several other people I know.

Detailed Solutions that Worked

1. Check and Replace Blown Fuses

What I Did: Inspected the fuse box meticulously and replaced any blown fuses.
Outcome: Turn signals came back to life.
Personal Experience: Found two blown fuses and replaced them. Voila, the turn signals were back in action.
Estimated Cost: Around $5 for a set of fuses
Time Needed: 10-15 minutes


  1. Locate the fuse box, which is usually situated under the seat or dashboard.
  2. Open the fuse box cover and carefully remove each fuse for inspection.
  3. Look for any fuses with a broken filament and replace them with new ones of the same rating.
  4. After replacing, close the fuse box cover securely.

Expert Tip: Always keep a set of spare fuses in your golf cart. You never know when you’ll need them.

Handy Tip: Use a fuse puller or needle-nose pliers for easier removal and installation of fuses.

2. Check Turn Signal Switch

What I Did: Inspected the turn signal switch for any loose connections or parts.
Outcome: Turn signals started functioning properly.
Personal Experience: Realized the switch was a bit loose. Tightened it, and the turn signals were back in business.
Estimated Cost: $0
Time Needed: 5-10 minutes


  1. Locate the turn signal switch, usually mounted on the steering column.
  2. Use a screwdriver to open the housing if necessary.
  3. Inspect for any loose connections or wires and tighten them.
  4. Reassemble the housing and test the turn signals.

Expert Tip: A loose switch can often be the culprit. Make sure it’s securely fastened.

Handy Tip: Use a flashlight for better visibility while working on the switch.

3. Check Wiring and Connections

What I Did: Conducted a thorough check of all the wiring and connections related to the turn signals.
Outcome: Turn signals started working again.
Personal Experience: Discovered some loose wires and reconnected them.
Estimated Cost: $0
Time Needed: 10-20 minutes


  1. Trace the wiring from the turn signal switch to the lights.
  2. Use a flashlight to inspect for any loose or disconnected wires.
  3. Reconnect or tighten any loose connections using wire strippers and electrical tape.
  4. Test the turn signals to confirm the fix.

Expert Tip: Loose or disconnected wires are a common issue. Always double-check your connections.

Handy Tip: Label the wires with colored tape for easier identification in the future.

4. Check for Power at the Flasher

What I Did: Used a test light to check for power coming out of the flasher unit.
Outcome: Turn signals started working again.
Personal Experience: I used a jumper wire to bypass the flasher, and it worked like a charm.
Estimated Cost: $0
Time Needed: 5-10 minutes


  1. Locate the flasher unit, usually near the fuse box or under the dashboard.
  2. Use a test light or multimeter to check for power at the flasher.
  3. If no power is found, consider bypassing the flasher temporarily with a jumper wire.
  4. Test the turn signals to confirm the fix.

Expert Tip: Flashers can fail over time. Bypassing it temporarily can help you identify if the flasher is the issue.

Handy Tip: Always disconnect the battery before working on electrical components to avoid short circuits.
