Look carefully , you will find a fuse , gently pull the wires around the seat stem , sometimes it can get buried under the power leads from the battery.

Trying to reverse polarity to 12 volt bulb sockets 1157 type in order to use LED bulbs in my electric scooter.

all of this work when all you need is the correct LED units
bulbs work which ever way the polarity is and bulb holders (sockets are always positive to the enter with the ground being on the outside)
by reversing the polarity at the battery terminals , other items that require a positive feed only , like the ignition module , converter etc will burn out
Flashers work through a relay and by reversing the polarity the coil used to close the points will not work
Replace all of the units that you have damaged by reversing the polarity and just connect the led 's up as you would a normal bulb
All of the rest is from you very limited knowledge of electrics

Hi, my wife's freerider Mayfair mobility scooter keeps going slow, have turned speed control down but still seems to loose power, doesn't stop just slows then reverts back to the speed set.

there are four possible reasons why a mobility scooter loose power including the user weight (vs. max weight of a mobility scooter), the weather condition, the riding routine and the battery age. You can check those factors to figure out the root cause.

How do I get to the batteries on my mayfair freerider

Lift the seat off. remove seat mount by removing pin or screws. Lift plastic cover off carefully but mind cables going to lights. These can be unplugged. And there should be your batteries.

I have mayfair freerider and every now & then it stops then goes again there are no green light flashes.

hi, does it just cut out ?, if so there is one fault that can cause that, worth checking, try pressing the lever in the upwards or downwards direction while going along, if it doesn't cut out , the throttle pot needs replacing ... it's worth also checking the battery and controller connections making sure they are a good fit and tight...

Other causes:

Battery voltage dropping too low...
Brake breaking down..

Need wiring diargram to reverse motor c218-314c, 220vac

If your electric motor is turning wrong, check the polarity on the battery with a voltage meter. Reversing the + positive connection with negative will cause the electric motor to turn in reverse direction.

Both Battery clips have come off of Schumacher SE-5212A Charger. Need wiring diagram to make sure I replace them correctly to the battery cable wires.

use a voltmeter. turn on unit to a low setting, place volt meter leads on broken wires one on each. if the voltage goes positive on meter. the positive clamp goes on the wire that the positive(red) voltmeter lead is on and the same for the negative.
Good luck
