You should always connect positive to positive first because accidentally shorting the positive lead when the negative side is not connected can do no harm. Once the positive is firmly and correctly connected you should then connect the earth side negative to negative. After starting the scooter remove the negative lead first. I repeat do not at any time start the car engine because its charging system can overwhelm scooter electronics or blow fuses.

as the two systems try to ballance, does your charger have a low setting ideally less
than 2 amps if so use that take the earth connector off the battery and charge it
for say 2 or 3 hours then try it unless you have a proper bike charger I would not
leave it on to long, once started take it for a good run the system will charge it up.

If you want under seat illumination buy a cheapo LED torch or lamp and use that instead. It'll also come in handy whenever you need a bit of light.
