I have done a lot of automotive wiring. You should run your lights off the battery and leave the charging system just for what it was designed for. It gives you more of a consistent power flow. If you want them to only work with the ignition on then wire a relay in the system activated by the ignition switch. Thanks. Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2
Unfortunally these Craftsmans use a single wire stator with a dual diode setup. +12 to the battery for charging / -12 dor the lights. At least I have DC power for them.
