    working like a charm, in terms of timing, so now onto my next problem.

    That relay was for a mi1atx, whose sole job atm is running a hdd (laptop runs of seperate dcdc supply. I have the m1atx in dumb mode, with no jumpers (as that timed relay is controlling shutdown of psu etc.etc.) but it wont run my hard drive.

    Input is good at ~13.9v, but then the power on the rails in insufficent. With nothing hooked up, the yellow 12v line output around 8v, why would that be?

    Im gonna do some further reading, but i want to get this in tonight and cannot think what could cause it. The output for a led is outputting 6v when the car turns on, so i know the m1atx is functional, but yeah.

    Any help appreciated

    check grounds & all connections... if you have almost 14v in & a GOOD SOLID ground, then there may be a problem with the ps itself....

    I am using one of those timer, I found 90 seconds is not enough, I am wondering if I can modified the timer. I would say 5 mins is good. Any electronic guru here?

    you can use a pac-tr7.... it is much more adjustable, but a little complicated to program..... get one & the instructions will tell you all you need to know..... very versital tool that pac tr-7.... it can do alot..... it is most popular as an alpine video lockout bypass module, but it can do so much more....
