cutting 53.9 volts dc to 12 volts dc like a car uses

I own an electric scooter

the problem is they desided when they bult it that it would use a 52.9 volt dc light
which I can't go any ware local and buy

I need to bring the dc volts down to what a car uses then
I can so the that kind of light bulb for a car

can some one could please tell me what electronic parts
I would need that would be of great help

you can contact me @

I found this

a way of making heat and it uses very little battery power

LM317HV will accept up to 60V inputs. Construct a 12V regulator using the LM317HV regulator.

As you'll see from the link, thee are other possibilities as well...Both the LM5008 and LM5010 could be used.

Best wishes

ummm it looks the regulator you gave me the address for is will do
but how do I get it set for 12 volts and what ever amp or mil-amps
to run the new light bulb

this one

so this will be next problem to understand

Does it use one big 52.9 volt battery or several smaller batteries that are connected in series to make up 52.9 volts.

If several batteries they you can tap into the connection and find where the voltage is close to 12 volts and then use a voltage regulator to bring it down.

You can use a 7812 regulator to get 12 volts but not from 52.9.
Sounds like four "12V" lead-acid batteries in series.  So yeah, if you can tap one of them then you'll get your 12V.

if you check the message above
ya it defiantly  is 4 of them

but that will change and at least now I know what I have to do
to get around a light bulb problem

it uses 4 - 12 volt led-acid battery 's

I did not think of just tapping one of them to

the only thing is in about 7 months I am replaces
with all in one battery so for now this will do the trick

but what I could do is have one made that is 12 volts and find a place
for it to be put on the bike
