All built and working, just one last problem......
The PC is built, the software configured, the CD's ripped, the in-dash screen is here, and the opus is working......
And everything is working as it should, except that if I switch the ignition on, wait and then start the engine the PC stops, shuts off and has to have the power removed and then restarted. This could become a real pain !!
I think when the engine is cranking the battery kicks out alot more voltage than it can handle and promptly shuts down to stop any damage being done.
I have tested it with an multimeter, and it goes up to 15v when starting the engine.
Could I solve this with an inline voltage regulator,
I have a couple of these:
Would putting one of those in work ?????
And if so, how do I wire it. I'm thinking wire it in line and the run the ground back to the opus black wire
If you know, Please help as this is my one last remaining glitch !!!!
Many thanks for everyones help through these last traumatic few weeks !
