The first timer you list should do fine. It has the 12V input for the control circuit (blue connector) and output connector (green) to control one wire for power. All you may have to do is put an extra jumper from the blue + pin to one of the green connections. The other green will be the +12V out controlled by the timer.
This all assumes your 12V has enough capacity to run the timer and run the device all at the same time. AA batteries do not have all that much capacity...

How can that help when I said it has a 12v supply you can see the battery "AA" supply plugged in ?????

I did not know what the other box was, there is no identification.

For something motor-driven that runs for long periods, I expected a mains PSU with 12V out.

Something like this, which would likely work and save the cost of batteries?

Easy Guys , Easy !

He's been upfront and mentioned his autism, but not the difficulties that presents and he's been here before asking help but gave up and ran off because of the endless criticism and teasing he got.

And how is that an AA battery?.

We both know that's an AA battery box .. .. . probably for 6 x AA batteries. If the motor is 12v it would run, albeit slower than expected ?

Come on, please be nice or if can't - shut up !

Oh my god thank you

It is hard to ask for help, and I always tell people I am an Autistic father with THREE autistic sons.

ANY help would be so much appreciated

Thank you

The timer you bought will work fine... Sagor is probably drawing a circuit up... All you need to do is separate
The positive coming from your battery box and route it through the relay connector... The other ( blue) connector is 12v ~ 0 volts... Personally I would unsolder the battery box and connect those wires to the blue connector, then run another pair back to the battery..
