Re: firewall wire feeding

Was talking to my buddy, and thinking about what TX said, going to cut off the "Y" connector and splice it into another wire and wrap that conie around the battery..

Re: firewall wire feeding

Atta boy. You can either do that, or there's a fuse box behind the battery that should have a large bolt. If you want you can wrap that "conie" around that and tighten it down with the nut. This way you don't have anything attached to your battery. Makes for a slightly cleaner installation.

You donīt have to be scared of batteries, the 12 V will not kill anybody. Only take care to never make a short between the poles, because the power the battery has will let a thick wire glow or even melt.
Its a good habbit to disconnect the negative cable from the battery every time you work on the electrical system, just to avoid causing a short and damaging anything. The moment you disconnect or connect it, you will see some small sparks, but that is normal and nothing to worry about.

Re: firewall wire feeding



Got it all wired up (bought an "Auxillary light switch" pack, came with longer and better wire)

But it's dead now I think, rained pretty hard.. will have to check tomorrow.
