Hi Guys,
I would like to cut out as much as possible losses between my alternator and the battery. I am thinking of installing a wire directly from the alternator to the battery. Which one do I use? The thick white one, or the thinner yellow one.
Regards
Andre

By default you have a cable running directly from the alternator to the battery.

If you are having charging issues chances are your earth connections need to be cleaned and tightened again
