When performing repairs that require battery cable removal, the feed fuse for the radio (30 amp) must be removed prior to disconnecting or reconnecting the battery. Disconnecting or reconnecting that battery can cause electrical spikes that may damage the MyGig – REN or REZ radio.

Removal of the fuse will prevent this from occurring.
