    The SSC is built in to the P1900. As long as you wired the ignition switch correctly, it will start up and shut down with the ignition.

    You also need to wire the PC to P1900 to signal it to start and stop. Is it a laptop?

    okay so if i'm correct, i would use an 8 gauge wire from battery to p1900...where would the wire from the ignition switch connect to???

    yes it is a laptop...compaq presario 700...it has a normal button that you push to turn on so i know from reading i'll have to do some sodering but is the SSC wire different than the one actually powering the PC...sorry if these have been asked before but i don't have the p1900 yet and don't relaly know what wires are where...

(i.e. screen, keyboard, battery)...now for the task of housing the MB and all other circuit boards...thanx BUGBYTE...great Car PC 101 video by the way...i've watched it a few times now...
