Does Hot Lead Have to be Run to Vehicle Battery


Hello, Would it be possible to run the module hot lead on an external 12V 7A Battery like the ones used in UPS systems? I was thinking of doing that instead of running the hot lead all around the car to the front main battery Thanks


Expert Reply:

You can only run a hot lead to the vehicle battery when installing a trailer wiring harness like the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # HM11143894 on a 2011 Subaru Impreza Wagon.

You need to run a hot lead to the battery because this is the only way to ensure your car's wiring is not otherwise affected. To do this you may need Wire Loom, 10' Long # 7509-10 and Loom Clamp -1/4" # A0250. I have added a link to a help article on routing a power wire to your battery for you to check out.
