Saving car memory while changing to a red top
Hey guys I just picked up my red top battery, my question is, I have to not let the memory go (get disconnected) cause I have a remote start and alarm and a whole bunch of other stuff I do not want to re set up. My q is this.
If I get another car near by, run jumper cables to the ground (block or where ever is the first place the ground goes off the battery) and hook the other positive to the little post off the distribution box. Will this preserve my settings long enough for me to install the red top, then disconnect?
Sounds logical to me, anyone else do this differently. I looked at all the local autoparts stores for the car memory saver and all they had was ones that pluged into a lighter from another car and running into the OBD2 port on mine, however this will not save my car alarm and remote start, so it will not work for me.... Any other ideas other than the jumper cable set up I had come up with, I know it will be dangerous as fu*k but I see no other option....
