2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Wiring question
So, I have a question for those of you working with a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 (New body style).
I mounted my computer (Voom PC with an intel Atom motherboard) under the driver's seat. It works great when parked. Computer comes on with the key, everything's great. The problem is that it turns off when I put my seatbelt on. ;)
I was able to determine the cause of this, I, in my infinite wisdom, hooked the pickup for turning the system on and off to the seatbelt sensor wire. Unhooked, I get 12volts. Buckle my seatbelt, and it opens the circuit, loses the 12v, and the computer shuts down (properly I should add which is always a bonus).
Does anyone happen to know if there's an accessory wire that would be a reliable source? I'd rather not have to go down the road with myseatbelt off or just shoved next to the seat to have the computer on. I know I can run another wire from the dash to get the signal, but I'd like to avoid that if at all possible.
Thanks for any input anyone can provide! (And I'll get a thread up in the Show my work thread soon, I'm proud of it!)
