remote battery install question


ok, i used to be able to find anything i wanted on the web. but for some reason i do not think i could find my way out of a virtual grocery bag.

i am putting the battery in the trunk on my 05 today and i need to know how you tie the battery cables from the trunk to the factory battery cables?? anyone have a pic or two you would like to share?

thanks in advance

Connect to the big terminal at right front fuse box. It has a red cap on it. Probably should use at least 4 ga. cable. I assume you're removing the front battery, so only remove the single cable going to the original battery, leave all the others on the terminal. I ran an 8 ga to the lower fog relay and subwoofers in the trunk so I fused at 60 amps, you won't want any fuse on that line tho since it runs the starter at about 300 amps.
