Yamaha Golf Cart Idles for 15 Seconds Before Taking Off


New Member
Hi guys hope you can help.

I have a 96 Yamaha golf cart that when you go to leave it idles and after about 15 seconds before taking off. I have heard everything from its a belt to the throttle cable is stretched. Im just a golfer and dont know much about carts and any help would be appreciated.


Welcome to the forum...

Are you sure it's idling or is it just spinning over on the starter? Make sure your starter / generator belt is good and tight...
