My City-EL is a confusing mess of primary,secondary, and all that unnecessary computer charging circuitry. One of the first things I did was unclip a battery post and tried to hook up a "start" booster since those 4 batteries won't hold a charge worth beans!.

Shower of sparks! Lots of wired are scorched and taped up; so maybe I did touch the red to black!

This morning everything was fine until I backed into the garage. Last few inches- click; *BAM* - right into the wall. Maybe I should put the red and black wires together intentionally and put it out of its misery!
