  • DSATX shutdown problem

    my dsatx ps/sdc seems to work fine to power the mobo, comes on with the ignition but does NOT turn off AT all. I kept checking on it today,

    10 minutes, still on
    20 minutes, still on
    30 minutes, still on
    ....
    40 minutes, still on
    ....

    90 minutes, dead(voltage below 10v)

    i've swaped the polatiry on the mobo jumper, did not help AT ALL

    any ideas?

      also, does anyone know if the DSATX draws power or allows any power to be drawn when in the off mode?

      my battery keeps ending up dead

          You're looking for someone to answer between 12:30a and 9:15a CST on a Sunday morning?
          Get real, man. Most people are sleeping or nursing hangovers. At least those of us int he US...

          Why don't you email or PM zootjeff, since he designed the DSATX....
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?



          Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

              In the off mode it doesn't draw any power. As long as ACC is low, It will not draw any power.

                it might just have been a seperate issue...

                as it turns out my battery was low on water, and it/was possibly completly discharged for the week that it was at the body shop, i filled it up, and completly charged the batery on a slow deep cylce charge, everything is working fine now... all problems i've been having have been OE(operator error)


                excellent product....will prob buy another.
