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.

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. -
