First no matter what do not ground the negative wire(s) to the frame, etc. What type of cart do you have? If it is a 36 volt then you will take the lights and wire the positive wires together and then negative wires together. Then from the switch run the positive of the lights to the positve of the first or second battery in the series and the negative to the next battery negative. THis will give you 12 volts. What ever batteries you use for 12 volts they have to in series. I suspect that you ran the positive to the number 1 battery and the negative to the number 6 battery and the lights could not handle the 36 volts. There are plenty of post on here with wiring diagrams so do a search if you don't understand.

Yes. You can run them off a separate 12 volt battery deep cycle and recharge with a 12 volt charger. Again do not ground to the frame etc only to the battery negative.

Guys here say to rotate which batteries you use your lights off of to prevent damage to two specific batteries from those being discharged at a faster rate than the rest. Every month or so rotate to the next in series....
