Power source for acc. + start (2012+)
My dual battery setup has an "auto" feature that bridges the batts automatically, and then isolates them when the key is off. Keeping you from ever draining you starting battery with your accessory loads while parked.
Currently I have it wired to the accessory terminal in the fuse box. However, with this configuration, the batteries isolate from each other when the engine is cranking. They are supposed to be bridged when cranking, sort of a self jump-start feature.
Anyone know of an easy source to get power that is on in both the start and accessory key positions, but off when the key is off? Something that won't anger the CANBUS?
Thanks in advance.
