Fold the back of the seat forward, from behind reach both sides of the seat, the right side will have a lever that needs to be pushed forward and lift the seat off.
the cover is snapped into place in the back, I normally grab both sides of the cover and tilt up toward the back and lift. If you should have a docking device mounted to the seat post you may need to disassemble part of it to remove the cover, hopefully not. the batteries should be sitting with the post upright, sometimes the batteries were laid on there side, this is not good for the batteries. unplug one battery replace the cables and reinstall, then go to the next battery and do the same. Turn the key on, to see what state the charge is. then replace the cover and seat. Plug the charger in and allow the batteries to fully charge. Scooter Doctor App
First check the battery voltage using a multi-meter set to DC and volt range if reading is below 12V battery has probably one dead cell get a new one, if between 12v and 13V battery should be OK to charge. Remove battery undo negative lead first then positive. Please do not use a car charger or any other charging device that has an output greater that 1 Amp you will fry the battery. Charge the battery for as long as possible. Recheck volts across the battery if above 13V refit battery connect positive lead first then negative.
Start your engine, when warmed up check the voltage across the battery terminals it should be well above 13 volts. Increase the revs and watch the meter the voltage should increase to about 14.5 volts. This shows the battery is being charged. Please remember batteries on bikes only last a few years and short rides do not put enough charge in your battery. Buying and using a motorcycle Smart charger does help. I use a CTEK XS 0.8 12V Motorbike Battery Smart Charger & Conditioner. You get a small wiring harness that fits to the battery with a rubber connector that connects to the chargers plug. This unit will help to keep the charge in the battery topped up.
The Rascal 600/300, remove the seat, lift off the cover, unplug a battery, replace the old battery with a new one, putting the cable connections on the same way, red is +, black is -. Do the same with the next battery, reconnect the anderson plugs,reinstall the cover and seat and plug in the charger with the key on watch to see the needle raises up toward the full mark, allow to charge fully, overnight is good. keep the bats charged up not allowing them to drop below half way for the first 20 charges to break in the batteries. as a rule charge the scooter after every use!

Most chargers are 3 pin. Plus and minus charging voltage to the
batteries and a third pin monitors the actual battery voltage, so
that the automatic charger can turn itself off once the batteries
are fully charged. As Brad has mentioned, the connection
from the charger has to be made for the charger to produce
a voltage at those pins. The best way to see if it is charging
is to remove the seat and measure across both batteries..
assuming it's a 24volt system like most. Charging voltage
can be as high as 28volts across the positive of one 12volt
battery (connected in series to the other 12v battery) and the
negative of the other battery. You can monitor the charging
voltage across the batteries with a digital volt meter.
If you remove the seat and the battery cover, you can connect the battery charger positive lead directly to the positive battery terminal. Or, you can connect it to the battery connection at the starter, whichever is easiest to get to. Connect the negatve charger clamp to either the negative battery post or any good ground on the engine or frame of the bike. Once connected, turn the charger on with a 2-amp per hour charge rate.
You can charge the battery without removing the battery. Find the large cable that comes from the battery where it connects to the starter. Connect you positive charger clamp there. Connect the negative charger clamp to any good frame ground on the bike. You can charge you battery using this method provided you battery charger clamps are not too big.
If you can't do this, you'll have to take the seat off the bike, remove the battery hold down strap, and then move the battery outwards so you can disconnect the negative battery cable.

To charge battery, use a trickle charger at 2 amp. Batteries usually only last about 3 years, so if battery is at that age it probably needs replaced. (Replaced my battery with a lawn mower battery that matched the original battery size.) I would try to get a charge on the battery before replacing it. Replacing the battery could be expensive. Battery could also be low on zinc, water, or acid.
