    my m1-atx reboots on engine start

    I use M10000, 120GB 7200rpm 3.5 HDD, usb bluetooth, usb ts and cartft mm400 (linitx7") lcd powered from molex connector from m1-atx..

    Maybe my powercables (from car batery to m1-atx) are too thin?

    Does anyone help?

    another thing to try is see what voltage you are getting during crank.

    well it sounds like a power problem, it could be that your powersupply cant survive the crank or when you do crank the engine, it spikes/interupts your acc line to you shutdown controller. maybe some type of cap. to hold a charge during the 2 sec crank.
