    Well there is a voltage drop, regardless. Like I said before, if it's dropping all the way down to 2V, there's probably something else wrong.

    yebbut - i'm looking at the psu for *that* since its the only variable in the equation... I'll jam it on the batt anyway, if it works, it works, and i'll do it that way...... I'm just being lazy and working in the warm using the ciggy circuit.. but that's girls in a UK winter for you innit.......

    eep, heeelp.
    It seems that the trickery does lie someplace in the loom of doom.
    hooked up to the battery direct my little opus powers it a dream, except when i knock the cables out.

    The problem now is a wire hooked to the battery and trailing along the floor and through my door.
    I've been dismantling the whole thing as per my HBoL that tells me how to dismantle everything *but* the part i want, and looking for a route through the bulkhead, but so far no joy...

    Anyone with a PUG 306 done this? Where did you route your power cable?!
    I've gotta go out at 3, and it's going to be tricky with a cable trailing :P

    Find a spot where some of the factory cables pass through and see if you can get through there also. Otherwise see if there are some existing holes -- maybe plugged with rubber plugs. The last option is drill your own hole. Search a few car audio installation sites for examples.

    I've looked, really I have... I'm just looking for someone who's *done* it... and they can tell me which one might be the best choice.. there's *ALOT* of plastic in that car, and i dunno quite where it's going to come out under the dash...

    I may just get a pro to do it, all i need them to do is decide placing and pull the cable - they can't charge much more than time to do it..

    Hey Caitlin - I'll take a look at my Pug in the morning - my wipers have packed in so will be trying to sort that in the morning anyway - I have a feeling I'll have to remove the wiper motor - what an ar$e!

    Will look whether its possible to get any wires through the bulkhead at the same time.

    If you do decide to drill your own hole, put a rubber plug in. Water leakage sucks, I've had it happen.

    On another note, I have had my cig. lighter melt on me, and thats was only at 15 amps. 20 amp fuse yeah right, from experiance I second the above opinion, dont use it for anything but a cig. lighter.

    Take it to a stereo shop, they do stuff like that all the time when installing amplifiers. Should be cheap.

    Yeh, that looks to be the plan.
    I guess you guys in the USA won't have Halfords, but I popped down there today, to see if I could get a Ripspeed installer to do it for me quickly, but the guys down there are so, and I'll not avoid being frank here, ****** they couldn't even locate a point to get through (Ignore the fact that I can't do it either, I'm pulling the "girl" card here) let alone *do* it for me.
    There's a place down the road from me in work, they're always outside when i drive past, cables trailing from bonnets, so I'll call them tomorrow and see if they can fit me in.
    I'm just so dejected that I suck too hard, and am too busy to actually do it myself...
    bummer.

    Suck too hard eh - I'd watch your words if I was you!!!! ;-)

    Stripped the wiper motor out today - what a tw*t to take out! There is a set of cables behind the wiper motor - if you're standing at the front of the car looking towards the bonnet in the top left corner there is the wiper motor - behind this is a grommit allowing a few cables through to the fuse box which is on the same side.

    Let me know if it helps.....
