The preferred method is to install it in the negative battery lead. (assuming
a negative ground vehicle). In this way if a terminal accidentally contacts
the car chassis it only completes the circuit (which will be complete anyway
if the switch is closed) rather than completing a short circuit.
The same reasoning applies when disconnecting the battery. Disconnect the
ground lead first.
