1st, If you have the 17ep motor, it takes a 12-volt battery.
2nd, when you look at the connector plug on the 17ep motor, there are four male connector wires protruding. These four wires are ganged into pairs and actually act as two wires: positive and negative.
3rd, Grab the cable and plug it in. Notice how it seats itself - especially notice the alignment tab. Now unplug it and open the connector on the motor end of the cable (the 4-pin side) and look at how it's wired - it'll likely be four pins bridged into pairs (sometimes though, they've already been operated on and only have two wires connected). The pair nearest to the little alignment tab on this connector (one on either side of it) are negative; the other two are positive. IMPORTANT!!! Do a continuity test with your meter to make extra sure you've got the right wires, then hook them up to the positive and negative terminals on your battery.
Once again--the pair next to the tab are negative, no matter how the connector on the motor itself is oriented.
