My golf cart has six, 6 volt batteries connected in a chain, positive to negative throughout. Can I connect an auxiliary light of some type to this power source?

the cart is wired for 36 volts operation so you would need a 36 volt bulb
you could put the wiring for a 12 volt bub across the terminals of 2 batteries so the negative wire will be on a negative terminal of the first battery and a fused positive wire will be on the positive of the second battery
the batteries are connected in series so the sum total of the voltage is the sum of all of the batteries
by selecting 2 batteries in series you are using the sum voltage of 2 batteries

Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables from the terminals on the battery. Take that battery out. Now then buy another battery for you make and model. Put the positive and negative battery cables on the battery terminals of the new battery. MAKING SURE, you have them on the RIGHT CABLES ON THE RIGHT TERMINALS. POSITIVE --- (RED) as the NEGATIVE CABLE is ----(BLACK). If you get them mixed up and try to start the car or something. You will blow a ton of fuses. and no telling what else! Its not hard as long as you can read the (-) << NEGATIVE (BLACK) WIRE and (+) << POSITIVE --(RED) WIRE on the battery.

I need to install a cigarette lighter

Is it a Harley part? If so, the red wire or wire with red connector on it goes to the positive terminal of the battery. The other wire goes to the negative battery terminal. If it is an aftermarket part, or just has 2 wires, the wire that is attatched to the body (the outside) goes to ground or the negative battery terminal. The other wire goes to power or positive battery terminal.

How to switch out the battery

Remove Negative terminal first, then positive terminal. Battery will have some type of tie down or block at base with a bolt you will have to remove. Remember how it goes back together. Remove battery.
Install new battery and tie down or block. Install Positive terminal then Negative terminal.
Remember to never touch both Positive and negative terminals with a metal object (ie..ratchet, wrench etc) this can cause injury and/or permanent damage to a new battery.

Yes you can. Basically the red wire goes to the fuse box connection. The fuse box should then be wired into the positive battery terminal. The black wire is the negative ground wire and needs to go directly back to your negative battery terminal or to a common negative buss bar.
