Hi, Karen for this situation I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Testimonial: "I figured the issue out...yaaa. there is a button which for the bike to go forward the leaver has to push the button in, so the leaver has a small 'L' shape nub on it which in turn pushes the button in that allows the bike to go forward. When you engage the rear brake the button is released which stops the flow of power. thanks,"

49cc taotao can't start with electric, only kick start. electric dies when brakes applied

Sounds like your battery is dead. Sometimes they seem ok, or read good on gauge...but just a little load kills it. May also be internal short or connection problem inside battery. Either way, I'd start there.

Taotao scooter manual

Not sure which model scooter you have got. But this site gives a comprehensive list of parts you can buy on line. Select your model and look for Handle Bar switch. This should include the head light switch if that is what you are after.

Taotao oil maintaince and basic up keep

what is taotao?
sounds like Dorothy's dog in Wizard of Oz.
is it a car?

surely you can look there and then tell what you have.
a scooter, and any ATV is not a car.
so is on the wrong forum.
try the ATV forum or scooter or motor cycles.
the veh. came with a manual did you read that first then ask questions./? RTM?

even an Electric scooter, now that be wildly different than anything gas driven. huh?

Sounds like the Hall wire are mixed up. Try reconecting the hall wires to the correct wire and it will run excellent. I have the same scooter and that is what was wrong.
