    Anyone make their own battery relocation

    I made my own battery relocation kit and it works great, but it keeps resetting my trip and sends my gauges to fly up and down after it turns on. The only thing i can think (possibly) that causes it is that I grounded the battery to a bolt in the frame of my hatch. But that doesnt seem to make sense. Any ideas?

    Try a different ground. Make sure its a great, clean ground.

    you also have to use a thicker cable to make up for the added length, going on gauge up should do it. Also is the battery sealed from the passanger compartment and vented to the out side?

    what i did was run 4ga wire to the positive feed. and 4ga grounded to a screw in the side of our trunk. I'll try more ground connections.. Should I really go thicker than 4ga? And no i haven't sealed from the inside or vented it to the outside.. I know I can't legally race like this, but theres no other negatives to this right?

    I did my own relocation too. try drilling a hole, clean both sides and bolt your ground nice and tight....sounds like your strarter is pulling all your power and not leaving power for anything else. a better ground should fix your problem and as stated above maybe stepup a size in your wire

    When I relocated my batt. in my Mustang. I had a 2 optima setup in the trunk with 4 gauge connecting the batt. but I used 1/0 gauge to run from the trunk to the front. Also grounded it in the trunk and ran another wire and grounded the block. I never had a problem.

    I need the room in the back of my TA or I would have relocated the batt in here.
