I attempted to do some electrical add-on's to my new MCSC
. Some worked, others, eh
1st: Spliced the phone onto the cig lighter cable. Neutral to brown, hot to the striped wire. The phone works, but there is now no power to the cig lighter (after the splice), and anything I splice DOWN WIRE from the cell phone has no power also.
Then, I tried wiring fogs and (actually, not yet) driving lights.
Both are attached at the lamps, relay grounded and the hot screwed directly to the battery terminal point along side the air filter. The business ends I got thru the fire wall.
I read in the schematic that yellow/brown is the wire out of the center switch console for the fogs. So I spliced MY fogs into this. (Actually, this is a hot wire that meets the lamps at the on/off switch, supposed to be mounted on the dash. I was tring to avoid this switch and have the lamps on when the oem lamps are switched on.) Nothing. I then spliced it into what I think is the factory harness for the driving lights, to the left of the steering column and below the dash. Here, I was going to use the lamps on/off switch.
Nothing there either.
I haven't tried the driving lights because of the two earlier problems.
Any suggestions? Namely:
Can I splice the fogs into the oem dash board toggle?
Where can I find a switched hot wire under the dash? If I splice in fogs, driving, radar, etc, will I draw too much current from it and dim whatever is on the other end of it?
Thanks for your help
PS, the lamps are the Alta kit. IPF, I think is the name. That bracket is smoking. These lamps are NOT going to move!)
