Columbia Utility Vehicle Maintenance Tips

These maintenance tips will help you keep your Columbia fleet in service safely and effectively.

  1. Perform a thorough inspection of all wiring harnesses with particular attention to evidence of rodent habitation. If evidence is found, it may be necessary to remove vehicle components for a more detailed inspection. Rodent damage to wire harnesses can cause severe failures.
  2. Inspect electrical connections for corrosion and clean, as necessary.
  3. Operate the brakes and monitor for correct performance. After operating, ensure the pedal returns to its correct ready position.
  4. Operate the throttle and monitor for correct performance. After operating, ensure it returns to the correct ready position.
  5. Measure battery pack voltage. Extremely low voltages may require independent charging before the vehicle charger will charge the battery pack. Extreme low voltages will fall in these ranges: 5.3V and lower for 6V batteries, 7.2V and lower for 8V Batteries, 10.3V and lower on 12V batteries.

These simple tips will help ensure your vehicle is ready for the toughest conditions. If you find any damage during these inspections, make sure to contact us and we can provide the parts and service that may be needed to get your vehicles back to peak performance.
