hey guys i just bought a battery maintainer. I was wondering if i can connect it without disconnecting the battery terminals. I will drive the car on dry days bought not as often. So will this interfere with any of the vehicles electrical.

thanks

I also have one, but mine plugs into the 12V outlet in the car. I picked it up at the dealer.

I can't see why it would be bad, you connect another battery to your car when jump starting it.

What car is it for?

i don't remember, I'd have to find the invoice.

In your case, I wonder if it would be better to plug it in via the battery terminals in the engine bay, as opposed to directly on the battery. Easier to get to also.

thats possible i just don't want to disconnect everything and set up all the electronics . I will just call the dealer tommorow.

thanks for the response.
