If this was an older cart, I would say check the small green wire between the starter, and the middle terminal of the voltage regulator.

Since this is a newer cart, I am not familiar with exactly how it's wired, and can't tell you exactly what to look for. Same general principle though. Check the small wire coming from the starter (stamped DF) to wherever it goes.

Ive never seen a ezgo over charge. Yamaha, yes, many times. The EZGO voltage regulator is the best. Make sure all your grounds are good.

The original starter is a good starter. If you put a cheapy aftermarket starter on,Id switch back to the original Advanced starter and see if that cures the issue. There should be nothing wrong with that starter.
