    Icon32 *How do you connect BATTERY ISOLATOR??*

    I have a stinger battery isolator. Everything is pretty much straight forward except
    I don't where to connect the "true ignition source". Can it be connected to the
    RED cc wire radio harness? Thanks in advance...

    I would imagine the red wire on your harness would be the best bet. You could tap into the actual ignition wire but that's way more of a pain

    Im not sure, but I heard that the red cc wire doesnt put out enough amp to use
    with the isolator. Is this true, because I am so lost?

    Go to the fuse panel in your car. Either by using the diagram, or a DMM, locate a circuit that is ignition switched (only powers up when ignition is turned on) and run a wire from that directly to the isolator.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Would the red cc wire on the wire power harness work fine though? It would be the easiet method for me if I can. Thanks

    It would probably be fine. Worst that would happen would be a blown fuse.

    to be safe, i would run it through a relay... just to keep it from blowing fuses
