    I know this thread is old but....
    I had the same problem with that device, only in reverse.....
    when I don't crank the engine I have a delay....when I do crank the engine, no delay at all. I contacted David and he suggested I put a 1000mfd 13VDC capcitor in parallel with the input line and ground. When I cranked the engine for the first time after installing the cap I didn't have a delay, but since then it seems to work.

    In hindsight I wish I would have built my own delay...alot cheaper and probably would have worked better. Here's a good one:

    Thanks...I may give that a try.
    First I am going to try and wire in a Pulse trigger relay and see how that does.
    I still can't get that David Navone piece of crap to work....
    I thought it was working with the cap soldered in, but it only works properly for a couple of hours until the cap discahrges....
    so if my car is not running for a couple of hours and I start it up, the amp turns on immediately.
    I wouldn't reccomend that product to anyone.
    Biggest waste of money (and time) yet!

    Thanks.... I may try that solution yet.
    The main reason I was posting in this thread was to let people know not to buy that David Navone Turn on delay.
    It's a total waste of money! Some people on here have had luck with it,
    but IMHO it's a POS
    There are much better ways to accomplish what that device is supposed to do!

    Most likely. Way too expensive for what it is. I built mine for free from parts I had in the garage.
