Question about Cars & Trucks
I have to replace the battaries to my wife's Rascal autogo. I have the replacement 12 volt cells and need to put them in the case. There are 4 wires that each go to one of the connectors on the battaries. The red and white wires are obvious. They go the the cell which is closest to the wiring harness. The red wire goes to the positive connector and the white goes to the negative connector. There is also a black wire and a slightlyy longer brown wire. These must coonect to the remaining battery, but which wire goes to which connector
When you put the second battery in the case paying attention to polarity position, the longer wire will go to the top connector. If you have a voltmeter you can identify which wire has 12 volts on it. It should be the brown wire but verify anyway. This wire has to be connected to the NEGATIVE terminal of the second battery in order to get 24 volts to the scooter. The remaining wire connects to the positive terminal of the battery.

use a volt meter while the car is running to check the main wire or large red wire coming off the back of the alternator it should read a steady 14 volts, the volt meter must be set at dc 10 amp settings, ground the black wire to ground or a metal surface some where on the car and touch the red probe wire on the volt meter to the main terminal of the alternator as i said it should read a constant 14 volts if it doesn't the alternator is bad.

I have the same model year as yours, but that does not really matter. If you go to the back of your Haynes manual, the wiring color codes are spelled out for you specific to your car, It is possible that a new or rebuilt starter can be stuck (clearances on starter gear/and shaft) or that you somehow bolted it in slightly askew and it is stuck or cannot move properly. Spot check the ring gear teeth by looking through the starter hole to see if they are o.k. and that the gear on the starter seems correct. Also, look around and check and make sure the ground strap is good (motor to body) or any ground for that matter
Sometimes, if a motor or starter motor is in a locked rotor condition this will cause a heat rise. It might be a good idea to remove it and energize it with jumper cables from the battery-- (a bench test) to verify actuation. (spin) Then wipe the grease of the leads (so you can read your color code) and carefully connect them to the terminals as the wiring diagram tells you in the Haynes manual.
