  • Slightly Different ITPS Problem

    I have read people's problems with the ITPS on here, but most seem to be not being able to get it to turn on. My problem is that it turns on, without the red (remote) cable being live.

    My set up is:

    +12v-----|--BL--|-White---|------|-Red----White---|-PW
    IGN +12v-|-OCK-|-Red-----|-ITPS-|-Black---Black---|-120-M
    GND------|-CON-|-Black---|-------|

    I have a block connector between the car wiring and the ITPS wiring (for easy removal of the PC) as the ITPS is inside the PC case.

    When I plug the connector in (IGN on or off) the pc starts booting. turning the IGN on or off does not send the command to start or shutdown the pc.

    I am gonna do some tests with the multimeter (maybe the red and white wires meet somewhere). Just thought I would check if anyone else has this problem or if I have missed anything why it might do this.

      I believe from your diagram you have the 12V constant connected to the RED wire on the ITPS. You would think that is correct but the ITPS's white wire is the one that goes to the 12V constant. The red goes to a switched connection.

        Sorry for the crap diagram. I have the 12V constand to the white, the red is connected to the 12V only when the ignition is on.

          What is a block connector? And are you 100% the wire you have going to your switched is indeed a switched wire?

            And what happens if you leave that one disconnected?
