Doesn't have one.

You can easily install one. Best is on battery terminal type.

It's located on the negative battery terminal itself, and usually requires a 1/2" wrench to actuate by removing the terminal end.

It has a plug
on my 72 sovereign there is actually a plug built into the battery cable, it looked like a molded section roughly centered between the two ends. it should be accessible from the battery box door outside. I removed the cable to replace them with new ones and then I found out it came apart. it looks like a very large 2 pin 12 volt connector. the connector was corroded enough that at low current, it wouldn't connect. I replaced them with new 4 ga cables, and just unhooked the batter at the terminal.
