    beeping thats like beeeeeep

    ok i have a power inverter thats 400watts and when im sitting in the car nto moving and i turn my wheel all the way to one direction it just goes BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP and i hate it... is this cuz of power loss? i have a redtop optima battery. would it be better if i hard wired the inverter or just directly connected it to the battery? Thank you

    Does it make the beep noise as you shut it off? If it does, ot's a low battery warning.
    Sounds like you're pinching a wire somewhere when you turn the wheel, as unlikely as that sounds. Or you're putting a draw on the electrical system that is causing the voltage to drop off....

    pics always help.

    And "hardwire" and "directly connect to the battery" are the same. Are you sayng you just plugged it into the cigarette lighter adapter?

    And does it only happen when you turn all the way to the left or right with the wheel, or any other times too?

    Wow ........ are you crazy man? it's a very bad idea - to use cigarette lighter with powerfull invereter - it's dangerous !!!
    Simply - connect it directly to the battery, i think it will stop beeeeeeeping Good Luck
    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 !
