  • Connecting M-2 in car

    Hello,

    I am trying to install original xbox with m-2 power supply. I have two questions. First one is " do I need to connect m-2 directly to car battery?" I think I have three options:

    (1) I can use cigarette lgihter
    (2) I can use fuse tap from the fuse box
    (3) connect directly to car battery

    Which one do you recommend? My second question is if I choose either option (2) or (3), how do I find accessory wire? I have never done it so your help is highly appreciated.

    Jay

    #3, definitely.

    Don't forget to fuse your power line close to the battery!

    As far as an ACC line, you can check sources that have wiring diagrams. http://the12volt.com is one.
    There is usually an ACC line running to your radio harness or possibly cigarette lighters or a clock.
    Think about devices in your car that are only on when your ignition is on....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

        for the acc line, i would also recommend testing the wire with a volt meter for proper functionality before trying to power any devices.

        when i wired my alarm system, i found 3 different wire color code charts, and there were inconsistencies between all 3.
