  • Battery cut off switch

    Hi There,
    My Odyssey 625 seems to drain if I leave the car for more than a few weeks. I read somewhere that my emerald ECU might be drawing a little current when the car is off off. Not sure.
    Anway, I've seen several cars with battery cut off switches and I wondered if there is a preferred switch for the sevens.
    There seems to be four million different switches available having had a quick look at Jegs and Summit racing.
    Any advice on switch and placement/installation?
    cheers,
    Paul

      I just installed the $35 dollar one, SW-BS1 (painted the lever red) after replacing one very similar to the $21 one, SW-BS3. It seems a lot more solid. The cheaper one's posts came loose, though they can be tightened up.

        I ordered the entire kit from Caterham: http://www.caterhamparts.co.uk/produ...id_product=236

          Also note that the Caterham switch has connections for the alternator...so if you turn off the switch while the engine is running, you don't fry your alternator.
