Can you take a look at this and tell me if this cord is correct?
Okay...wrong forum again, I suppose? Sorry, feel free to move me around if I chose incorrectly, please! :)
Rather than add to the forum, I posted photos on my blog. Would you be so kind as to look at what I've posted and tell me what I just did to the wires?
All help appreciated!
I am so new at these scooters, I am truly the least knowledgable about these. However, I do like to learn, so tell me what to do? :)
Did you only plug in one of the male ends for charging?
Where both male ends identical, did they both work the same for charging?
It's impossible to tell from the fuzzy pictures what exactly happened there, but it sounds like you might have shorted the battery. As a result, a fuse might have blown if there is one in that current path, or yo welded the male connector parts together, or the wires might have melted somewhere else.
If you are lucky, then it may be just the damaged male connector that has a fault now. Did you unplug the battery end of the cable immediately after the spark?
You might be able to get going by cutting off the damaged plug part. Then make sure the cut ends of the wires are not touching, isolate them from each other.
Then, get a multimeter and "beep" the cables with the continuity tester function (when not connected to the scooter).
By the way, what you did is called "Letting the magic smoke out". It is this magic smoke that makes electric vehicles and other electronic devices work (don't believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise, like electrons and all that stuff). If you let the magic smoke out, the scooter stops ;-(
