HyBike model: polarity schematic

Helping a friend replace batteries in his HyBike model:Polarity.Have replaced batteries with same voltage batteries that are smaller lighter and more amp hour rating. I didn't take it apart,the problem is i have two red wires that will both reach the positive post of the battery stack, i don't want to hook them both up and possibly burn something up and i don't see another connection point for the second red wire. i appreciat any help you can give

SOURCE: battery connections

Check the voltage rating of the motor (for example 12 volts). If the voltage rating of the battery is half the voltage rating of the motor, then connect one bike wire to the + post of the first battery, connect the - post of that battery to the + post of the second battery and connect the second bike wire to the - post of the second battery. This is a series connection. Two 6 volt batteries connected in series will provide 12 volts. If the voltage of the motor and the battery is the same there would be another connector so I do not think that is the case for your setup.

Have an 07 f350 Ford pick up 6.0L power stroke .batterys replaced . Alternator replaced . Dash battery light still stays on no charge .soure voltage gd to alternator ,and plug . Reads gd voltage to si

I would try the regulator, there is a few tests to see if the alternator is charging, use a multi meter and check the b post on the alternator and earth and see what voltage it is producing, check all those sort of things and you will find the problem, make sure the battery terminals are very clean or they won't accept charge as well, hope this helps

What is the output voltage, amperage, watts and polarity for Schwinn 203 recumbent bike? I have a pile of transformers and don't know which one my mother-in-law used. Thanks for all replies.

If the recumbent digital computer gives you an option of power supply or batteries then you can deduce voltage of the power supply by counting the number of batteries needed times 1.5 (1.5 volts = voltage of AA or AAA battery).
You can deduce typical current by multiplying the number of batteries by: AA = .05 amps or AAA = .01 amps.
Your next issue will be to deduce the polarity. Look at the Schwinn to look for a symbol that will show you polarity. Typically the center of the plug is: + positive and the outer shell is - negative. There are instances where those two are reversed.
If this is all too confusing then Google the recumbent model number to find replacement power supplies ($35 to $45 US).

Where do I look for electrical problem on Yamaha Motorcycle?

If they did that, then they may have also wrecked the alternator and anything electronic (gauge head and ignition control module?) in the bike. It shouldn't have damaged the starter motor or the lights, though. Check & see if the lights work - try the brake light, that's easy. Headlight, too. The neutral indicator light should be OK.

If the lights work but none of the electronic stuff works, then try to avoid that friend when you have a bike problem. You'll need to trace power to everything electronic - anything with a circuit board inside - and verify whether that particular circuit board works at all, replacing it if it doesn't.

The alternator itself (the windings) should be fine, but the voltage regulator (probably inside the alternator but possibly a separate module) will likely be wrecked.

Nearly all electronic devices are sensitive to battery polarity, and can be destroyed if that polarity is reversed.

Dash and column lights

if the dash lights dont work, it may be a bad control switch for dash lights. try and remove the switch! and check for voltage at it. if voltage is normal then control switch is bad.

My remote key will not lock the doors

Carefully open the remote control along with the key with a sharp knife, see the battery voltage, replace with same type careful to put in the direction of the same polarity.NEVER REVERSE the polarity.

Need schematic diagram, some advice and ultimately replacement parts

You have something in short circuit in power supply pattern, so filter coils are burnt. It may be voltage regulator, or regulating transistor, electrolytic capacitor or even shorted diode at pwr. input serving to protect in case of inverse polarity applied. Check all for short. Was it reverse polarity or overvoltage occured?

Won't work

oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera.
