Where to connect single yellow wire?

Recommended Posts

Gonna try to install my Mechman 370 elite soon, most of the snow melted woot.

I got self regulated at 14.9 and comes with a single yellow wire for the harness.

It says to run to a 12v switch source, I feel like an idiot but what the hell is that?

Seen a video of some one putting it in a fuse slot that only gets power when cars on.  Guessing that will work?

Power, when the KEY IS ON, and 0 when the key is off. A keyed power source. Any, KEY'd ON source. Like, the keyed on wire to your head unit. Same same.... 

 

Meter, set to DCvolts. Hot to the fuse or wire or whatever, Ground to metal. 

Is there 12v with the key off? 

Yes- Find another source/fuse on fuse block

No- Turn key on,......... is there 12v with key on? 

        No- Find another source/fuse on fuse block

       Yes- Tap into it. Enjoy

Thanks, guys, ill probably just do that then, maybe there's even a free fuse slot that will work.  

I could just run it through the firewall and tie into the deck's remote wire.  Assuming thats what you mean by key on wire from deck.

He wasn't saying tie into the deck, he was saying the same way you are tied into a switched remote for the deck. I wouldn't tie it into the deck but that's up to you.

Ok thanks, ill probly just do the ACC thing with a empty fuse slot under the hood.  Seems to be easiest way.
