I would not go with less than a 4 gauge cable for the + and - . atleast run a 50 amp as if you were running a big stereo system. but, you might want to consider a circuit breaker.

In the future DO NOT Jump any vehicles

Use a battery charger or replace a failed battery

Jumping any vehicle made from 1996 on ,can ruin
either vehicle,maybe

We need to find the location of the "key on power"


Now if your refering to power for teh ignition switch then i would look inside the power distribution box under the bonnet near the battery and inside this box you should find some big 80 amp fuses or similar and these these fuses even if not blown could have corroded legs and contacts ,possible even the power cable coming from the battery could be corroded at the battery terminal .

Radio does not work on '96 cirrus. Sometimes it does, but mostly does not. Sometimes display is totally blank, and sometimes there is a small line on the display. I had the battery replaced awhile back,...


Not sure of the first issue with the radio, but the inverters output is 300 watts at 110v, not 12 volts. If your receptacle is rated at 180 watts that means it draws 15 amps (180/12=15 amps)-I have used a 400 watt inverter in various cars, and never had an issue, and remember just because it is rated at 400 watts does not mean it will draw that much, depending on what is plugged in-a laptop, for example, only uses about 80 watts. Your converter will '**** down' if the load is determined to be too high.

I would like to know the ma watt a/c converter I


a 1500 watt inverter draws appx 100 amps from your battery,check with your dealer and see how big in amps your alternator is rated for,if its less than 160 amps you may run short in the summer with the a/c and lights on and discharge the battery or ruin the alternator

Get wire from car battery to cabin area in Dodge Grand Caravan


Check the fuse box, there should be some positive prongs you can wire up to. Although, what the W's are for this, I do not know. If that dosn't work, there is a rubber boot around the steering shaft, you can slice it open and run the wire through there to your battery or fuse box under the hood. The one under the hood should have at least one metal stud on it where you can add accersies and it bypasses your ignition system.. Just remember, with it connected straight to your battery, if you forget to shut off your inverter, it will drain your battery.
