Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
I want to safely add a circuit that would draw 30 amp and be on only when the engine is running. Any ideas?
Check the ignition wires with a test light and locate the wire that goes on and off with the key turned
Auto part stores sell an adaptive positive battery cable connector tap off this with #12 wire to one side of a 30A relay tap the other side (load) this goes to your device then: tap off the other side of the relay (switch) cut the wire to the ignition feed; then back to the ignition switch use #18 wire with either wirenuts or, crimp connectors for this and, don't forget to ground ask the auto parts person to show you the "load" side (your device" and, the "switch" side of the relay.
