Doc here,

If your real nervous about power...

Get 2 ~ 12 Volt Lantern Battery's in Parallel, and use them for your FIRST low Voltage testing...(Don't try and run headlamps ect..) If it all checks, you should be good to go with a standard Automotive battery.

If any shorts exsist..There is not enough current with lantern battery's to do any harness damage.

Best "O" Luck!
