Hi, is there any risk removing this pug from the negative terminal on my 2,5 L diesel powered 2011 Path?
Greetings

I realise I'm dredging up old posts but I've only just got my Nav. My main concern is will the removal of the green wire from the plug speed up wear on the alternator? And has OP had any long term effects?

sounds like removing the Fuse is the easiest method of disconnecting .

Just confirming you mean the plug coming from the negative terminal?

Cheers

Yes there are. Increased fuel consumption, reduced alternator life - it will be like your car had a real alternator and still had to turn it over. On the positive, you don't need special circuits to use an auxiliary battery and your starter battery gets charged better.

Went camping off grid last week just north of Weipa and wasn’t aware of the smart alternator when I reinstalled my dual battery from my 03 Courier. Obviously I got poor performance from my AGM. So today I’ve just cut the green wire at the fuse box. Tomorrow I’m going to run an in-line swith to the cab. My theory is I can turn it on and off as required. While not camping etc.. and just doing the normal running around I can switch it “on” completing the normal circuit. When required switch it off on trips to give the auxiliary battery full charge. Has anyone else done this and should it work. I’d be interested in your thoughts

That sounds pretty clever. I don't think the length of the wire will make a lot of difference, but if it does start to act odd, try putting a relay in where you made the cut (connect one side of the cut to pin 30, the other to 87, then find a positive feed for pin 86 and run a wire from 85 through the firewall to a switch with the other side of the switch connected to earth).

Ok I didnít bother running it to the cab. Just put an inline switch on top of the fuse box cover. Saved any chance of voltage drop etc.. affecting performance.

Strings, i removed the green wire from the plug on the first day i got my Nav. I still have the battery in the car that it come with and the car is almost 5 years old. Have had problems with the alternator also.

Cheers
