Will a power cap help me?
hi, this is my first post........
i have had a car pc for a few months now, and have wired it a bit strange to most i think, its a dell optiplex sx270, it runs off of 12v so i just wired it straight into the 12v ignition, now it has worked fine all summer but when the nights started gettiing darker and i had to turn the lights on on my way home from work the pc tends to die at junctions, i imagine this is because of a power shortage due to headlights on, revs dropping and brake lights coming on etc etc........ what i want to know is if i was to wire a power cap into it to stable the power would this sort my problem? and if so how many farad to go for?
sorry for being a complete n00b!
Heres My car BTW
Also when i install the power cap i will be moving the PC to the boot of the car and doing a few other little things like on/off timers etc
