When you mean wired in series you mean you tied the positive from one battery to the negative of the other. That will put 12 volts into the system. Is it supposed to run on 12 volts or 6 volts? If it is only supposed to be 6 volts you should wire the batteries in series. Negative to negative to negative wire to load. Positive to positive to positive wire to Load. Hope this helps

Why my 2005 saab 9-3 Turbo won't start?

Check that you're getting charging current to battery. Voltage at battery terminals should read about 14.5 volts (well above 12 volts in any case). If not, a bad alternator may be failing to provide your battery with a full charge. If charging is good, and battery holds its charge, other possibilities are bad wiring connections to starter solenoid and/or starter motor, or bad ignition switch assembly.

How do you determine what each leg on a 6 leg toggle switch is for?

Need more info. Model of boat? Try getting wiring diagram online? How did the switches function when they were working -- did each switch do the same thing, i.e. turn the same lights either off or on? In any case, you DON'T want to willy-nilly try running a new power lead without knowing exactly what's going on, else you may massively fry wiring, other accessories, switches, etc, or even start a fire. No getting around that you need to track (using a multimeter set to read 12 DC volts) from the power source (battery/alternator), along whatever wire(s) you think might be going to those switches (color coding of wires may provide clues), and determine where the break occurs. 99% of the time that will be at a connection, rather than in the wire itself. Do you have power at your controls/gauges? Check crimp connections especially, if you have any -- they can eventually die in marine environments. My guess is that finding and fixing one or more bad connections will get you lighted again. Use marine-grade replacement electrical parts from WestMarine/BoatUS/Defender/etc., rather than Home Depot parts.

How do i wire 2 batteries together but still get the same voltage but twice the amount of amps

Wire the batteries in parallel to double amp output.

With batteries, you can increase voltage or amperage by choosing to wire in series or in parallel.
For example D batteries are 1.5 volts.
Wire two D batteries in series, or stacked on top of each other like in flashlight, and you get 3 volts, but same amp output as one battery.
Wire two D batteries parallel, so the + terminals are connected together with one wire, and - terminals are connected together with another wire, and you get 1.5 volts, but twice the amps as one battery.
Test this yourself with two D batteries and a multimeter.

I have a 14 volt source but when I try the winch in either forward or reverse the voltage drops to 4 volts. The drum is not seized because you can pull the cable out easily by hand.

Not only do you need a 12 volt supply (13.8V) to operate this winch, but you also need a.) wire large enough to carry the electrical load, and b.) a power source that has the necessary current (amps) to turn the motor.

If you have wires that are too small, they will heat up and not be able to deliver the current (amps) required by the motor. If your power source is to small - it can not supply the current required. The result of either conditions is "voltage drop". This can be explained the same way your car needs a 12 volt car battery to start. If that car battery was dead, you couldn't connect eight "D" cell batteries (8 x 1.5volts = 12 volts) together and attach to the car's battery cables and expect it to start. This is because the amount of current available in the car battery is hundreds of time greater than eight "D" cell batteries - even though when the D cells are connected in series - both systems deliver 12 volts.

If neither of the above conditions is present, then there could be an electrical problem with the drive motor itself. This could be a shorted / melted winding or other electrical connection that is not right, even if the drum spins freely.

Need battery

We have one of these, it's great.

See these links:

I would try removing the battery and charging it with a proper low-amperage charger (1 amp). Your battery will either be 6 volt or 12 volt, just be sure the charger matches.

Also check the ground rod and all wiring connections.

Wiring up super winch

I am wiring a Superwinch 4500 to my Yamaha Rhino.
Problem the two red wires go to the key switch.
Do they just splice into the 12 wire ?

Have 36 volt club car w/coils

Recheck your battery wiring. The batteries should be wired in series, neg to pos to neg. I believe one of the batteries behind the driver's side is the main negative and one on the passenger side is the main positive. There is usually a #6 green wire coming from the for/rev switch to a positive battery post, however , it might be a different color, but that one is the reverse wire, It can be on any positive post, just count the number of batteries between green wire and main neg, multiply by 6 and that would be total reverse voltage. If wired correctly all 6 batteries are used for forward.

Recharging the Vector Start-It compact elite Jump Starter 12 volt

yeah from what im to understand... you charge it overnight, and yes another way to use it (and possibly better way) is connecting to the battery directly..... it should work on your van fine i think, its worth a shot, hope this helps :)
