    when you will hardly connect it to the battery, don't forget to use near this connection hi-power fuse ( like in car audio applications, i think 25-30 Amp will be good ). Also use hi-current wires
    400Watt CarPC power supply for powerfull systems- thaks for Beta testers- it was perfect.

    Remember - AMD Athlon XP (socket A) powers from 5v rail in most times !

    Yup. the beep is a low voltage warning.

    Somehow, the voltage is dropping off when you turn the wheel. Maybe the alt or battery are weak as the PS pump will drag the engine rpm down while turning, causing the alt to turn slower, resulting in a voltage drop off.
    Do you have any starting or other electrical problems with the vehicle?
    Or maybe, if you have the inverter plgged into the cig lighter, you bumped it while turning the wheel?
    Either way, the voltage is dropping off and causing the beep noise.

    Cheers

    Well since it is just pluigged into the cig lighter, My guess is sharp turns (where you have to turn your wheel all the way) causes a bad connection causes low voltage warning. Cig lighter sockets are the worst way to power the pc... ever. Both unstable physical connection and low current wires. Inverter is not the greatest way to begin with. Then pluggin into the cig lighter, is not a great idea. I even made a pic for this. I am sure I can find it...

    edit: voila. The only pic I have hosted here Notice the importance!!!!

    Inverter...completed.

    HAHAHAHA thank you for your enlightening advice, 2k1toaster. *is crying it's so funny*

    You'll be happy to know that now he is "safely" directly connected to the battery, with a fuse, no less. ^-^ (oh yea, this is Ken posting for him...I'm his make-shift installer/helper/mechanic/person dude. Lol)

    NEways, to assist in keeping the inverter cool, we have it intaking A/C air directly from the under seat vent. I managed to scare the crap outta Stitch by touching the positive and negative wires together for a nice big spark. *grins evilly* Everyone is correct that his inverter was giving off a low voltage warning beep due to a loose wire in his cigarette lighter socket. Ya know...seein' how I'm the one who wired up his inverter...it's the cleanest wire job in his car. Hahaha. NEways, I've praised myself enough. I'll let him continue this post.

    "I can't think of anything to say...um....I hope this post has proved to everyone the CORRECT way to wire an inverter. I'll post more pics of my "carputer" very soon...as I only have one up."

    Are you in Canada?

    That looks like canadian tire sourced stuff.....
    Inverter, wire, right down to the fuse holders and fuses!

    Also, I'd tie that wire away from the Bolts on the strut tower. Road vidration wil cause the edges of the bolt heads to wear through the insulation (eventually) and cause a short.
