    All of these are stickies out of the FAQ forum and Newbie Forum. When all else fails... SEARCH BEFORE YOU ASK!

    Do you know how to build a PC for your desktop? Building a PC for the car is almost exactly the same, with a couple key issues:
    1 - Most components are smaller, in order to save space.
    2 - The power supply is a special one for vehicle use.

    Every component you have should have a manual with it. If it doidn't come with one, look it up online. READ THEM.

    In particular, read teh manual for your M2ATX. It will outline how you need to wire the power supply to your vehicle's electrical system.

    Frankly, I think you put the cart before the horse here. We all recommend doing some research and planning and learning about what is involved before rushing out and buying pieces/parts.

    If you decide that this is over your head, you may be able to get a shop or maybe even a forum member to help you with the install. A shop will be more difficult, because most of them don't deal with PCs, although they will have a good understanding of vehicle electric systems. They will also charge you an exorbitant amount to do the work, too.

    This isn't as simple as replacing your headunit.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
