So I'm almost done my whole carpc setup, I've got my pc built, all my wires run and I'm ready to test everything out. I plug everything in, turn on the car, and I get nothing. I know the pc works, I've tested it with a regular power supply. Pull out the volt meter, check all my lines, everything looks ok. Here's the weird part, if i take the wire off that connects to the motherboards on/off switch and manually jump that switch while the car is on and everything plugged in, the computer boots up just fine. I've tried connecting that little wire in every combination that it can be connected but it will just not start the computer. Right now I have my pc setup that I just hit the power button to start the pc, and when I'm ready to get out of my car, I hit the power button again to shut it down completely, but I'd rather not do that. Can anyone give me any suggestions on what to check to see why that line isn't starting the pc?
No announcement yet.
