  1. Always wear protective clothes, gloves and goggles while examining golf car batteries. Also, take off all jewelry and accessories. Never smoke near the batteries.

  2. Check water level in the batteries on a weekly basis. It’s crucial that the lead plates in the batteries remain submerged in water at all times. In the absence of proper water level, the batteries can catch fire.

  3. Ensure that the vent caps are secure. Clean battery tops using water and baking soda solution. Make sure that the solution is rinsed and dried thoroughly from the battery tops. Battery terminal and cable clamps are to be washed using a post and clamp solution.

  4. After charging the golf car batteries, add water. For this purpose, use only distilled water and avoid water that is high in minerals.

  5. Check the batteries regularly to ensure that they are free of cracks. The battery connections have to be clean, free of dirt or leaking fluid. Damaged batteries need to be replaced immediately.

  6. After cleaning, coat the battery clamps with petroleum jelly. The areas surrounding the batteries need to be spotless and dry.
