Default What is this?

I am upgrading my cables and found the old cable that runs from the battery to the controller going through a thin white (yellowish) square box. The terminals won't go through it. I can go around it but am very curious what it is. I attached pics. Can someone tell me what this is, and is it necessary for anything?

It's your OBC or onboard computer that controls the charger. It is vital that the negative cable passes through it for proper charging.

Thanks guys. I guess I could cut the cable, run the cable through and buy a new terminal end . I went from 6ga to 2ga. Hope it will go through the computer hole.

2 ga cable will fit through the hole. That's one option; you could also make your own stud kit with a bolt, but that introduces more connections into the system.

You can see what the stud kit looks like in this thread - its important that you do run your cable thru the OBC, unless you use an aftermarket smart charger and have bypassed your OBC.
