My trolley fell over yesterday and the plug into the battery came out, there is visible damage to the plug-in on the wire from the battery.
It will still plugin also does arc as I plug it in. The trolley will turn on but will not engage when I press the button for it to move.
Do you think this is due to the damage to the wire? I am going to replace it, was just hoping for some guidance as to what other issue it could potentially be?
Problem and faults with the battery connectors
Concentrating on only the battery and its connection. It is most likely damaged the battery lead 3 pin round connector, probably fractured it and the metal contact sleeves within this black round connector are touching and shorting. I would definitely say a new battery cable will be needed. Now as for the female socket on the battery holder.

How to Fix a golf trolley battery connector
Without seeing it I would check to make sure the pins coming out of the round socket are have not been damaged in any way.
- Check if there is any visible bend in these pins.
- Check if the golf trolley battery cable round connector is fitting easily, where it plugs in or unplugs with no problem.
These will not guarantee there is no damage to these connection sockets, but a basic check should be 80% sure it is working.
The battery cable and connector are in stock, also the round socket that fits onto the battery tray is available in the online store.

Hello , I have a Powakaddy Sport. With a fully charged battery connected to my trolly and with the wheels life’s off the floor – the trolly runs find & goes thro the increase in speed fine . But as soon as I drop the wheels to the floor it cuts out, the screen says re- connect ( fault code is short circuit ) ant advice please ? Thank you
Sorry I don’t deal with Powakaddy golf trolleys – possibly in the future, so I am unable to shed light on your Powakaddy fault. I’ve seen on other trolleys a poor battery connection can cause a complete power shutdown when an increase in speed is asked for.
Thank you for your swift response, I’ll keep searching
I received the new part and my trolley is now back working perfectly thank you great service
