The battery is not under the seat - its sits behind the square plastic panel under the handle bars. (If sitting on the bike the battery cover is beneath the ignition switch. Held on with on screw and pops off to reveal the batt box. The batt should have a retaining strap which would need to be removed before batt will come out.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Scooter won't start
Chances are the battery has never been replaced. You could replace the battery or get a 1 or 2 amp battery charger and try to charge the old battery. DO NOT go over 2 amps when charging. I would buy the charger before I bought a new battery. Saving the old battery is worth a shot. If the battery won't take a charge, at least you now have a charger for when you need it. Be sure water covers the top of each cell in the battery before charging.
I am unfamiliar with your specific bike but if it has a kick starter, it should be on the right side of the gear box near the back and close to the foot rest. It could be that your scooter does not have a kick start but has an electric start instead. Fix the battery problem then put the engine in neutral and press the buttons on the handlebars. One of them is likely to be the start button.
Two final thoughts. First, go to a dealer that sells Torpedo scooters and ask questions on how the scooter operates and user maintenance you should be doing while you own it. Get and read an owners manual. Second, in a safe area, practice emergency stops. Imagine a car pulls out in front of you and then brake quickly to avoid an accident. Do this for an hour. Now when something happens you will automaticly react instead of having hesitation by having to think, " Now where is the brake on this bike? ".

check the wiring, make sure that you are using the bulb with the correct rating. Also get the output in the headlight connector checked.
