Have 3 batteries in series for 36v
Tried grounding 4th battery which is not connected to hydraulic batteries to trunk ground.
Front engine bay ground got red hot.
Upgraded to 1/0 in engine bay.
Rear 4awg ground got hot, smoking electrical tape, throwing mad sparks when touched to chassis ground in trunk.
What is going on?
Is it possible to have hydraulics and beat at the same time?
If so, how do you go about wiring an extra battery in the trunk for beat along with 3 batteries that are for hydraulics?
No, I'm not trying to hook up the 3 series batteries that are 36v to the 12v stereo system.
I'm guessing I need an isolator of some sort?
Also, it was working fine with an hc600 wired the same way, but we swapped out the hc600 for a big 850cca lead acid and that's when the problems started.
Oh and the series batteries were grounded to the chassis and I thought that was a bad idea.
Do hydraulic batteries need to be grounded to chassis? They are not being charged so I assume not, and that's why the wire is messing up.
