I have a 80 series Cruiser (petrol version) and was wondering if anyone had a wiring diagram and parts list to install a duel battery system.

Thanks

why do you want a wiring diagram?
just go to a 4wd store and get a dual battery kit which gives you a battery tray to suit your vehicle an isolator and all the relevant fittings

David, I tend to agree with Ken. The easiest way is to go to a 4WD store and buy a kit. Make sure you do your research before you decide which kit to buy though. There are many different kits available. I ended up buying the Piranha 150DBE kit for the following reasons. It has a sensor to detect when the engine is not charging the batteries and shuts the kit down meaning that both batteries are completly isolated from each other. No voltage can flow backwards or forwards which means you can be confident of flattening the second battery while still having a charged main battery. (if the main battery does go flat you can use jumper leads to start the car). The second reason is the kit is fully surge protected (no spikes can get through) There were a couple of other reasons I cant think of off the top of my head but these are a good start.

David,
I agree with Lisa I too have the piranna system, it was on my 80 series for 5 years went through the simpson, flinders and many club trips with no problem. the same one is now fitted to my 100 series and still performing well and is easily fitted by the average person in a couple of hours.

Hope this helps
Cheers
Paul
