looking for an ignition source for a redarc1220bc-dc ign battery charger for the 2012 jeep grand cherokee diesel to run an auxillary battery. My electrician is having problems locating a power source that does not run off the auxillary switch/system. Redarc could not help and Jeep are also struggling.
Yes, as I have not advanced any further
Yes I need the power source to live when the ignition is on. The supply needs to be 12 volt but the current would only be 100 milli-amps as it is only a signal for the charger to start charging. The supply can come from under the hood or the interior. The second battery will be located in the rear of the vehicle directly behind the rear seats
This supply also comes on when the accessories are on. My electrician says that I need to connect to a supply that only comes on when the engine is running otherwise the battery will charge while accessories are on. The charger is a 20amp/hr battery charger. I also have my uhf radio connected to this point.
As the engine has injectors etc I would have thought that it would have a similar set up the gas injection system. Is this not the case.
