ZQ500 using the Battery Eliminator


Proper installation of the battery eliminator, as with any automotive accessory, is vital to reliable operation. Typically, a vehicle will have a 12 or 24 volt system, which includes a battery and an alternator. In order for all devices to work properly, they must have good positive and negative connections. One of the most common issues in automotive wiring is poor grounding. Loose or dirty connections can lead to noise on communication devices or complete failure.
