When I am at a red light or just have my car in gear and stopped for a while, my carpc will freeze up after a while from power drain I suppose. All I have to do to get it back up is to press down on the accelerator for a few moments. This never happens when I am driving or when I just have the car in the accessory power on state (key turned down the other way while parked). I was wondering why this happens. Is it because the inverter is drawing (wasting) too much power from the battery? I've tried turning on my diagnositics to see battery levels and while driving its at ~180 (whatever units) and when it sits idle at a stop, it slowly goes down. And when it reaches ~150 the computer will freeze up. I've tried a 200W and a 400W power inverter and it happens with both. And it seems to happen quicker if say I have the lights on with the AC going. And if I roll down all my windows at once (powered windows), the second they hit bottom, the computer reboots from what seems to be a quick power loss. Does this happen with a DC-DC PSU too?
No announcement yet.
