Default 48V to 12V Converter

Installed a 48V to 12V Converter on a 97 48V CC. Checked and rechecked the wiring and we are getting 40V on the load side. Burned out the Headlights and cannot figure out why this thing is not reducing the voltage.

Red to number 6 +, black to number 1 -, yellow is switched on/off to nbr 6 +,
green is load and has 40V instead of 12V

Any help would be appreciated.

According to the picture attached, Figure A, you should have your main (+) from your input on your reducer on #1 battery and your main input from your reducer (-) on #6 battery. That would give you 48 volts in on your reducer.

Can you give us info on the unit you are using? Is it blue? ID #? Not too many of these units are switched.... I'm thinking I know which one it is but I don't want to guess.
