    Wire them in a series, positive of one battery to negative on the next battery and continue till you have one positive and one negative left open. Done with 4 12 volt batteries will give you 48 volts.

    +1 to the above. You will charge from those same two terminals as well. Also, if these batteries are on board the car, you can use one of those batteries for 12v too. Just hook your wires to the positive and negative of one of the batteries only. But, you will need to charge it with 12v then float the whole pack with 48v.

    Go to the link and view the diagram (24 volt battery bank-series). They are using (4) 6 volt batteries to produce 24 volts. Wire your (4) 12 volt batteries the same as the diagram and you will produce 48 volts.

    Just make certain when you get two or three of them wired that you don't make accidental contact with the wrong terminal. The explosions can be very damaging, even lethal. JW

    We run 2/0 cable on our 48v system but it is overkill.

    It might be simplier in Nevada to use a recoil pull rope with two big crew members, forget the batteries and starter:D

    haha;;maybe;;;.it's all good..got all lined out and battery and starter issue done..time move on to something else new to learn;;this build has been a major learning experance..I know sometimes I ask simple stuff to most you guys but I rather ask a dum quest about something and save myself from making a mistake then pretend to know everything and cost me broken stuff or even getting hurt or hurting someone else.
