just have to run a new wire into the engine bay. think theres a hole on the passenger side footwell - but not 100% positive.

just pop down to your local motor factors and they'll give you a suitable guage cable. on the alpines im not sure if the iso enables you to plug the wire straight into the iso. as i once bypassed the iso ignition option on my old 205 so it would run directly off the battery.

Get yourself an awl (long small diameter nail will do but an awl has a handle!) push pointy end through grommet. Remove awl and push it into side of cable about an inch from the end and push it down the inside of the cable towards the cut end. Push that lot through grommet. Carefully remove awl leaving cable in grommet then, in engine bay, pull cable through. Cut end of cable with hole off. This worked for an 8 gauge cable. Will be trying it on a 4 gauge soon.
