I have a test light but the light is very dim. I should have bought one of higher quality.

A test light is fine for measuring the 12 volt system, but a small inexpensive digital voltmeter will allow testing not only the 12 volts, but also 120 volts and checking for open and shorted circuits. Plus, checking the condition of batteries, small and large.

Agree, recently got a golf cart and discovered how poorly the headlights worked. I decided to add an auxiliary led light on the front, being a professional mechanic all my life I bought a light from Amazon, mounted it, ran wires to it tapping into the original headlight wiring, nothing, 12V test light indicated power but the new light wouldn’t work. Breaking out the multimeter I found the possible cause of the poor headlights, I only had 11.9 volts at the headlights. Checking the specs on the new light it says 12-48V, since this is a 48V cart I simply ran a wire from 2 8V batteries and I have a very bright headlight. Without the multimeter I would’ve spent a long time troubleshooting with just the test light.
