I'm guessing you mean to stop the smart alt

I'm not sure if it's the right one - it's the right colour. I wouldn't cut it if possible - as I recall, one of the guys removed it from the plug in such a way that it could be returned to normal if needed. That's what I'd try to do. Let's hope they come along with a pic!

Yep, just pull the one on the fuse box closest to the battery. Works great and you can put it back in easily if you ever need.

The white plug on the back of the negative battery terminal pole does the job. Unplug it and you'll then get a constant 14.1 volts all day, every day plus you can plug it back in if required.

Have just got myself a new 2014 Titanium and have a dual battery system in my old 07 V6 which i would like to put in the new car. Has the 2014 got the smart alt fitted to it.

Cheers
Shawn

Very likely Shawn, hopefully yours hasn't been changed too much from the pictures above so you can find the correct wire and gently remove it.
