not gettin enough juice
This is my problem. A hace a 300W inverter connected directly to battery. On the other side there is a normal PC PIII with a 235 power supply.
The PC works fine when the engine is but the the engine is on the inverter begin to beep and power off
PD: sorry for my english
dont know??? try shutting off everything that could be sucking some fo the juice. see what that does then go from there. what inverter are you using? what is its max. and min. input voltage? what vehicle are is it in?
The car has everything off (radio, etc), only the engine is on. It's a Ford Fiesta 2002.
Input Voltage of the inverter: 10-15 V
Nominal power: 300 W
Maximun power: 350 W
May the power is from the power supply?
Thanks for your quick answers
yes that could be. your battery could be about dead. also depending on where you are gettin power from. is it connected directly to the battery? or some line you cut into?
Directly to the battery. I thought about a dead battery too, but the problem happen only with the engine on :/
alternator? what is your power supply unit for your computer? 300 watt? or less
235 W power supply unit
Alternator? it sounds to be a big problem...
well the alternator is what recharges your battery. and if that is not fit then it will drain your battery and eventually lead to your engine being dead on the side of the road because battery is dead and can not get enough juice from alternator to keep running. Like I have found out with my past two vehicles(with no computer) :OP . No its no big problem just something to keep in mind. You can always take it in and test it if it is a major consern to you. I dont know what the problem with the inverter is. I get the same problem when I take my laptop/inveter with me in my mothers car, but it does not do it in mine. Also I have just gotten a new alternator. Im sorry im lost there... um I just bought these145 watt psu when i get them ill prob want to sell the other two. I dont know if that
would be a reason why, just another to keep in mind. Sorry bro im at a loss right now. Any one else???
