Fortunately it was cool enough today to turn off climate control etc.

50 Km round-trip to/from work (Paj only of course, no caravan in-tow).

Ultragauge readings (there appear to be 2 battery voltage gauges available):

- 25 Km outbound: UG Battery Voltage gauge always ~14+v

- 25 Km inbound: ECM Battery Voltage gauge always ~14+v

A single newish 4WD cranking battery which replaced the short-lived OEM lawnmower jobbie.

As I previously understood, hook power hungry accessories -ve to ground to be sensed. However, when I did it to my 270W LED light bar, it created a power drain and tripped the ASTC warning lights. Should I need connecting the LED light bar -ve to the battery -ve?

Can anyone confirm negative auxillary to main negative battery works?

Should connect it to ground. The issue I had was to do with a faulty light bar. If you connect aux negative to main negative, the extra load won't be sensed by the alternator.

Yeah, but this is the member who's disconnected the hall effect sensor, meaning that the battery is now being blasted with 100% alternator output, whether it needs it or not.


The battery manufacturers will be happy.

Im no expert but

I see the charge voltage is 14.2 volts or around there while engine is running with or without load.


Also overcharging? Isnt that what the regulator is there for on the alternator and Im using a multimeter.

Yes I know voltage alone doesnt say if its charging but its also the amps

But in this case you mentioned "blasted" with 100 percent output

Well if he,s that keen then turn off the air con, lights, radio etc. and save even more power. Mitsubishi engineers must be a bunch of retards if an ozzie redneck can sort out how a cars electrical system should run.

Engineers do get things wrong.

Weak diffs
egr
poor injectors on d4d
Zd30 patrols blow up
Ford rangers catch on fire with electricals and transmission issues.

They are certainly not infallible.

No one here is arguing but I guess Im raising this to learn from you guys who have owned these pajeros longer than I.
