Battery Relocation With 3g Alt using powerwire

Just Wondering Im in the process of Relocating my Battery to the Back and installing a Cut off switch I was told I have to remove my power wire that goes from the Back of my 3g to the starter relay for it to work is this True is there anyway around this so I can use the powere wire still?

you dont remove it, you need to replace it with a longer one to go back to the cut off switch, it needs to be on the same terminal of the switch as the battery so that when you turn the switch off the car wont run on the alternator output and the car will shut off.

yeah, on the switch you'll have 3 wires.

2 wires on the left terminal, 1 from battery +, and one from the alternator.

the other terminal which is switched, goes to the starter relay so when you flip the switch off all power is cut.
