The weird mysteries of moped electrical systems...

TJ Miller /

Hey people, i was playing around with my tomos and i was wondering what type of electric current came out of the thing. i hooked a 12v up to the electrical parts just to see what happened, and nothing seemed to work.. would someone like to make sense of it for me? thank you much...

If this helps.

All moped magnetos produce AC Voltage. If your model has a voltage rectifier (which your tomos does) the components wired in after the rectifier are operating on DC. All mopeds that have a battery will have a rectifier for charging the battery . All accessories that are operated by the battery will be DC. For example on a General 5 Star moped the horn , brake light, and dirrectionals operate on DC voltage. The head lamp and tail light operate on AC Voltage.
