    Opus 90 Watt Wiring Questions

    So I now have my Opus 90 watt PSU and I had a few questions on the wiring setup. Today I went to Radio shack and got some 14 AWG and 18 AWG wire for the wiring to my cars battery and ignition.

    A few questions I have are, in the manual it says to "Use a half loop to prevent cable/connector stress" and I was just wondering what that was, and if there was a picture or something of how to do that.

    Also, where would the ignition or on/off line on my car be? There are diagrams that I also got with the user's guide but I just don't get it and can't seem to find it on my car. Any help on that is appreciated too.

    The picture of the rollercoaster is a half loop. You should do that instead of bending it 90 degrees. It's kind of like a garden hose... you don't want to bend it or it'll cut off.

    look for an Empty spot labeled ACC on your fusebox.

    Thanks for that, interesting way of putting it

    After I find this, then what? Also is the wire just going to go to the fusebox then?

    To go the fuse box route, you usually need to jam a wire under a fuse.... that wire would then run out to the opus.

    Radio shack sold a "fuse / shim" at one point that made this really easy.

    The other option is to trace wires gonig into your keyswitch. These are BIG , THICK, HEAVY wires. - BE CAREFULL if you use these, they cary a large load, and are importiant to the function of your car. ( and they melt if you sort them)

    Anyway buldog has a good collection of info for wiring there remote starters. -
