hi guys. I have spent the past few months reading every thread I can about installing a PC into my Jeep grand Cherokee.
I work with PC's for a living so the PC side is nothing new to me but I am having some read issues with the power side of things.
For right now I am going to rip apart my laptop and extend the screen cable and mount my screen on a flip down mount on the roof with the laptop base unit mounted under my seat for easy access and upgrades plus it cuts down on wires running around the SUV.
The question I have is this.
The last owner of my Jeep had an AMP installed and was kind enough to leave me to power wires and grounding wire still installed. I have a power inverter which started its life with a cig lighter end which got hacked off last night and I tested the wires directly onto the battery to see if it would power it, IT DID YAY!!!. Now, I went to the back seat under the seat where the power cables run from the battery. I tried the same test and I am loosing a crap load of power somewhere as when I hook the wires up I got low power light and that nasty beeeeeeep sound telling me its not getting enough power. Does anyone know if the cable that was used to power the AMP could / will work to power my inverter for my laptop base unit?
Any imput would be great.
Thanks guys and I will have photo's of my setup soon.
