    I don't have that screen, but on the screen you should know where ground and +12v is


    just hook positive from the screen to the yellow of the power supply molex
    and ground from the screen to any black on the power supply molex

    One question though; the battery/accessory line in a car is 12v only when the car is idling or not running. Under driving conditions, the power spikes up as high as 16v on some cars. Won't this fry the LCD screen? Or do the LCD screens accept 12-16v?

    technically your car voltage can drop and spike up high. But I rarely see this. Right now I have my screen tapped off a fuse and its worked great for about a year? At home you can power off your power supply. Yello ~~> 12+, adjacent black wire is ground.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    I have succesfully hooked up my LCD indoors. What you are going to need is a ac-dc power converter box. I have one of these at home. Its about 4" x 4" and i used to use it for CB radio in my house. The box has connections for cig. adapter and for inidivdial wires too. All you have to do is plug the box in the wall, then plug ur lcd wire into the box. I wish i could get pics, but its at home and im at school. I dont know how much my dad paid for it either. I hope that helps.
