Welding Disconnect
« on: May 1, 2020, 06:22:39 pm »
Fairly new to welding, and done none with anything attached to a vehicle. If welding on a vehicle, what should be disconnected, just battery leads, or should my MSD 6 also be disconnected? Just the ground?
MIG welder if that matters.

    I always disconnect both cables at the battery.  I work on heavy trucks/buses and they recommend just the batteries as well, and the buses have 6-8 computer modules each.
