put the battery in.......connect the RED (power) to the + post of the battery.....connect the BLACK (negative/ground) to the - post of the battery. if the radio you have has a separate wire for the memory (lots of times its yellow) connect it up to the + post as well.

Any need for a fuse or a toggle switch?

I have mine on a toggle switch just so I can make sure it doesn't use any power when it is off.

If you don't want it to draw ANYTHING when off. Wire the red and yellow to one terminal on the switch, run a lead from the other terminal through a proper rated fuse (the radio may already have a fused power lead, if so, ignore this step) then run the lead from the fuse to the positive (+) post on the battery. Wire the negative (black) wire right to the negative (-) post on the battery.

Just curious, why does no one mention wiring the remote switch from the radio to a wire on the key switch on the cart?

I have been thinking this question for a few days now...is there not a hot wire on the key to hook to? The run then + and - to the extra battery or a cart battery?

This is what I was thinking about doing then hooking up a small solar charger to the extra 12 volt battery.

Please tell me if I have no idea what I'm talking about because I really don't when it comes to carts...just got one.

(Are the wires running through the key switch all negative instead of positive)?

I am also planning on hooking up a battery meter and if the key has a hot wire then a relay should be able to run from the hot wire to trigger the battery hot wire to the meter and cut it on and off.

It can be run through the ignition switch, if it is a 12v switch.
