Got the 60 Impala wired according to manuals and hopefully all is correct! I'm afraid to power up with a 535amp battery in case there's a problem. I have a small 12 volt power pack that puts out 12v and 1 amp. I thought I'd power the system with this unit and check for 12volts in all the right places! Sound reasonable? Any suggestions about another method? Thanks Bill

I had the exact same question and here's the suggestion that I used even though my wiring was all new from AAW and it worked great but as noted you can't check the starter. Lamar

That should work fine. I always use a battery charger set to a 2 amp charge. Just enough to check out the wiring but not enough to fry anything.
