I don't know of anyone that has done this but sounds like a good idea. Should work fine, just be sure to ground the light to the neg. post of the battery and not the frame.

I was looking at the switch on the F&R. It puts out 12V, but may still want to run a relay just incase.

We did this on a G9 hooked up 2 lights to it and it works like a charm. I can't remember if we put a fuse in or not I will have to check.

On the Club Car, behind the FWD_REV switch, there are 3 limit switches.

The middle one controls the reverse buzzer switch. There are 2 wires going to this switch.

Using the ground wire from the light, go to one of the wires to the limit switch and connect to that wire.
Connect another wire from the other wire of the limit switch to ground.

Use a 12V source to the power wire of the light.

When you put the cart into Reverse, both the light and the buzzer will go on.

My G2 has a bright LED plate light as a reverse light, it is hooked up in place of the reverse buzzer. It works great. I would not do it like this for any electric cart that has a reverse buzzer controlled by the motor controller, but that's an issue no G2 owner has to worry about.
