  • Wiring for MoBo F_panel headers.

    Well I did all the wiring for my install, or most of it, but I ran into a issue. For the front driver door I ran 2 ethernet cables, thats 16 wires total on the inside. I am technically missing one wire, but its a mission to add more. It took almost an hour per door. Here is the layout.

    Ethernet 1

    2 for PC Selection (+/-)
    2 for PC 2 ON/OFF (+/-)
    3 for Stereo Audio (+/+/-)
    1 open

    Ethernet 2

    2 for camera power (12V/Ground)
    2 for I/R lamps (12V/Ground)
    2 for Video signal (+/-)
    2 for power of main PC (+/-)

    Basically I am missing one wire strand for the reset button. I was wondering if I can combine any of them.... Like maybe combine the ground for the camera ground and I/R lamp ground? Wonder if that would be safe? Are there any others you guys can see I can combine. I dont think I can combine any of the button grounds right?

    You can ground the camera and IR lamps together if you want. Make sure the wire is thick enough to run that much power though! You shouldnt be pushing more than a few hundred mA through such small wiring.

      That was my thought also..... I am going to run seperate wires for the power for the camera and LED lamp.... Everything else can go on the ethernet. Like Video, audio and buttons. If I do it that way I also have enough room for a mic for the driver side mirror.
