Smile OMG another converter question !

Installing a converter in my '05 Precedent, and I got everything figured except the negative 12 volt wiring.

Presently, I have lights installed & they work off the "last" battery in the string. (The front battery under the passenger seat.)

So I'm gonna remove the blue wire for the lights off the + side of the battery and it will go to the +12 volt of the converter.

BUT I don't think I can leave the lighting -12 volts running thru the golf car negative. I'm thinking I need to remove the -12 volt lead from the under dash wiring bundle (or whever I can get to it) and run it to the converter.

So the car will have two negative circuits - one for the 48 volt operation and one for the 12 converter operation. Is this correct?

THANKS for your help. dave

THANKS Scottyb, I appreciate your help.

I just wanted to make sure I had my head screwed on, as opposed to where it usually is!

Thanks again, Dave

I remember that!

I can't remember what I did yesterday, but I do remember from my USAF days in electronics that current flows negative to positive. 'Course when I was in the USAF, airplanes had upper & lower wings (think biplane) LOL!

Have fun! Dave
