Coleman generator vandalized wires cut need help

About three years ago I bought a Coleman Gentek Pro with a 14.5 OHV Briggs & Stratton. About a month later some young kids cut some wires on the motor. Two were red and white and the other two were Black and gray. I spliced these together but noticed that as soon as I hooked up the battery I saw a small spark so I know that there is a drain on the battery even with everything off. Also the motor does not charge the battery. Can anyone help me figure out what to look for to fix this problem? I'm figuring that when the kids cut the wires this caused a short and messed something up.
Thanks.

To my knowledge, Coleman Powermate is out of business. Unless someone here offers up a wiring diagram, you need to find someone in your area that was a servicing agent for them or try another outdoor powered equipment website where you can post a message. Find the model number of your generator and include it in your post. I think the model number will begin with “PM” followed by numbers.

Check you private messages.

Thanks Airman. The charging circuit for the battery I believe is seperate from the actual generator so I think a wiring diagram for the Briggs & Stratton is what I really need. The model number for the generator is PM0557523. The model number for the Briggs & Stratton engine is 28n777.
Thanks again....

Well I am dumbfounded. Earlier this year I needed a part for a Coleman Powermate generator. The Powermate website was shutdown and they had filed for bankruptcy. Now here they are alive and……. well I wonder.
