Connecting is simple. The main issue is what kind of motor do you have? Batteries are DC. Therefore the motor must be DC or a universal motor, or a permanent magnet DC motor. The motor voltage and current requirements must match the battery's voltage and ampere-hour rating. A standard DC motor has 4 leads

A universal motor has 2 leads

A permanent magnet DC motor has 2 leads. The motors with 2 leads are easy: + and --

The 4 lead motor: 2 leads are "field" (F1 F2) 2 leads are armature (A1 A2)

one of each goes to + (F1 A1)

one of each goes to -- (F2 A2)

The motor must be very small in horsepower to work off a battery. There are other more complex DC motors with more leads than 4, but there are NOT going to run on a battery.

How do you make a toy car have a motor 2 1.5 volt battery and a switch need to make it as fast as possible someone please tell us how to connect the battery motor and switch and strategies?

I would suggest that you connect all components in series. That is, + of the first battery to - of the second. + of that battery to the switch and the second terminal of the switch to the motor. The last wire from the motor back to the - of the first battery. To reverse direction of the motor just swap the leads. There are many factors that will also affect speed such as how the motor is connected to the wheels, type of bearings, even the width and diameter of the wheels. Good luck and have fun!

What happens when the car battery connectors connect together?

When a car battery in connected to itself (i.e. You connect jumper cables onto a battery and then connect the other two connectors to each other), you create a continual circuit with the battery and nothing else. A similar effect is when you hold a 9 Volt battery to your tongue and you feel a small but continual "zap". Imagine this effect, but much greater. Sparks will appear when the connectors are first connected. Warning: Do not do this. This will damage your car battery. The only reason you should connect a car battery through jumper cables is to connect it to another car's battery in order to "jump" a car.

Can a diagram for two 12V deep cycle motor home batteries connected to output 12V be supplied?

You just connect them in Parallel. Two 12 volt batteries connected in parallel will output 12 volts. Two connected in Series will output 24 volts. Just connect the negative terminal on the first battery to the negative on the second battery. Then connect the positive terminal on first battery to the positive on the second battery. Connect the cables to the second battery, positive to positive and negative to negative. Click the link for a diagram.
