English term or phrase:engine on wire
this is about a battery brain device installed to vehicle batteries.
Step 4: install balck engine on wire
Installation of the engine on wire will prevent battery brain from disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. It will also prevent the battery brain from disconnecting the battery if the voltage level drops below 11.8 V as could be the case with accessories that briefly reduce the voltage below the threshold level.
I did answer in German, not in English (see above). German is my mother tongue. Therefore, it was impossible, to judge my English, as done in your response to my comment ("bad German"). and believe me, "Motor-an Draht" sounds ugly. But I would stop this discussion now.
