Power inverter help, BEEPS constant when left in ON position,so I have to turn off/on
Hey guys, I'm new hear and I've got a question for you about my power inverter.
I have a Jensen 160watt cont and 300watt peak. I want to put my xbox in the car with this inverter and the real problem is when everything is plugged in meaning the power inverter is plugged in the cigarette lighter plug (i have 3 cig plugs and the one for the inverter is for sure rated 120watts max and meant for heavier use) and the xbox is plugged into the inverter. Now when I turn the power switch located on the inverter to the on position it glows red meaning its ready and i power the xbox up and it works. So here's the crappy part. When I shut off the car and come back to turn on the engine the power inverter emits a constant buzz which actually means i have to turn the switch on the power inverter off then back to on thus enabling it to function normally again. Now that is stoopid.
How do I get around that? Do I make an extended switch of that on/off switch and place it close to the driver area so that I can manually press it EVERYTIME? I wouldnt want to though. Is there a way to build a switch or somethign that will trick the inverter into booting safely when i stick the key in?
