Default problem with battery relocation.

i was going to do my battery relocation to the trunk

but i came across a problem. there are to wires that go to the positive side of the battery.

1 is to the start and 1 i dont know where it goes, but it looks like it goes to accessories.

so if i wire the starter to the battery in the back, what do i do with the other wire?


i know its kinda hard to understand. but if you look at the wires, 1 is going to the start and the other has like a elbow to it.


someone hepl

thanks

tony.

Default main power supply line to system

If I understand your discripton, meaning the wire that goes into the wire loom. That is the main power supply line to the entire car via the main fuse box.

It feeds power to _ALL_ the cars systems.

You will need to run a lead to that connection as well.

look up some car audio parts, there are distribution blocks (they also come in no-fuses configurations which you'll most likely use. i would use something that looks like this, don't need a brand name but you get the idea. unless you want to try to solder the wires, which IMHO won't really work that great with such a thick wire. I did it to extend my wire when i changed my battery terminals and it's working out alright i guess, i wouldn't recommend it though.

Exclamation

I did this mod in my previous car and I made the mistake of not having a good enough ground. This helped my ECU to fry

I ended up using 2/0 gauge wires for power and ground from the front back (although 1/0 would have been OK). Note that you should always use the same size positive and ground wires. Since around 30 feet of wire is required to do the mod, I found that welding wire was the best quality/price you could find.

Just a thought

Any one have pics of the battery relocated and how everything was wired up?

I am going to be doing this. I plan on using some car audio wire and distribution blocks.

Did you guys run the wire inside the car or outside?
