    HOw to hook up an input to the FB

    OK so I can't quite figure out how to physically hook up an input to the FB. I'm trying to hook up my steering wheeel controls and I have them all ready to hook up (used a voltage divider and one wire outputs signals below 5v).

    I can't find a diagram that shows the FB and where each wire goes. Do I need to hook up to the red wire poles? How do I do this?

    I'm still not sure on how to hook up the wire. Does it run across all three of the analog input prongs or does it just need to touch one of them?

    Since you have your own power and ground already, you only need to use 1 wire. The 1 wire from your steering wheel controls onto the Input Pin of an analogue input. The +5v and GND on the Fusion Brain are meant to power sensors and such.

    Also since you are doing steering wheel controls, you are probably the first guinae pig I have for the new dTime feature in MDX added 5 days ago. This way you can set how rapidly the buttons fire the software and the new imporved key sender as of last night too. Let us know how you do.

    i'm having a problem getting my computer to recognize the FB. Everytime I plug in the FB the install new hardware wizard comes up. If I try to install it automatically it says windows can't do it. I try to install from a specific location but I can't find the right place. The files in the driver folder dont show up when I try linking to them. Anyone know what Im doing wrong. I'm running XP

    OK, how do I know if I have the SWC wire hooked up correctly and if the FB is reading it or whatever.

    I think I'm starting to understand how to hook up the wire. It looks like with the analog input, each of the 10 inputs has 3 prongs. Do I need to hook up anything to the 5v dc pins and the ground pins or do I just hook the wire up to the last pin, the input pin?
