Use a relay kit, from the parts store.
Quick!!
Easy!!

OR wire them with your own relay/wire.

Whatever you do USE a relay!!!!!!!

How could I use a relay for my after market a/c, from Vintage Air. ITs a 65 chevy street truck, 350-350 turbo, Everytime I turn it on (fan, and commpressor) the drag on the voltameter goes down to 8-9 volts. then turn it off and everything goes back to 13.5 volts. thanks, kool 65

I am no expert on this but a relay will not the AMP draw on your alternator.
It sounds like you need a better / higher AMP alternator??
When you turn on your A/C your alternator is not able to keep up with all the demand.

Kool65, you have a problem either in you a/c or your alternator or generator/voltage regulator is bad. Need to hook up an ampmeter and see where the problem is.
