Yamaha G8 Golf Cart Will Not Start at Times


New Member
My 92 Yamaha G8 golf cart will not start at times. It clicks as if the battery is dead but after pushing the gas pedal several times it will start right up. This happens almost every time I first get in it but does better after it warms up.
Is this an electrical problem, a starter problem or something else? It seems as if there is something not making contact intially.

Im almost certain the starter/generator brushes are bad. Pull the starter out and inspect them, you might want to take a look at the armature also. Hopefully it didn't hurt that.
