evening.
fitted a 100a split charge relay,positive in from starter battery out to leisure battery,small connector to earth on starter battery,small connector which feeds from alternator.
when the alternator feed is connected and ignition switched on the relay buzzes and battery warning light stays on when engine is running,even when revved?no charge is being put into starter battery or leisure either when this wire is connected?
once this wire is dissconnected battery light stays off,no buzzing and alternator charges normally?(14v)
both batteries new,alternator 18month old?
unlucky enough to have a faulty relay? :*

you need a diode on the trigger wire the led bulb is back feeding and wont go out without a diode fitted in the trigger wire to the relay, i know i had same prob fiited diode on the trigger wire to the 100amp relay and never had it since, i got the info from davet4 of here

It is quite a common issue and the easiest way round it is to connect to a black/yellow wire at the fuse box instead.
