    Ok, I finally got the multimeter tonight. I put it on the continuity, or beep setting and here are my results:



    By the way, the orientation of this diagram corresponds with the picture I took.

    Should I be using the ohms setting as mentioned before? As of right now they are all equal as far as continuity goes, but maybe using a different setting will set on of them apart because I will get different numerical values.

    Got it. It was leads 7 + 9. I touched the red wires from the SDC to them, pressed the emergency switch and it fired up. Hopefully it does this automatically when it receives power .

    Now to solder to those microscopic leads

    Yeah I might take the screen off to allow for more airflow. Don't know yet though because I'd like to be able to bring it inside to transfer new media to it.

    By the way - Is there a program that automatically syncronizes folders between two separate computers? For example: Every time I get new songs on my desktop I eventually bring my laptop inside and transfer the songs to it but it's ahrd to keep track of what's already been transferred and what hasn't. Is there a program that could keep them in sync so it does it automatically?

    Bringing the thread back, but I finally got to installing on my dell insiron 5100. If pictures would help, let me know. I am trying to solder the connections and got a strange result.

    In testing with the multimeter, I found two leads that did not have continuity when the button wasnt pressed, but did when the button was presses. I soldered to these points and it had continuity without pressing the button. Now the laptop powers up as soon as power is supplied to the system.

    I tired removing and resolder and ended up with the same problem.

    Any thoughts?

    For now, I took off one of the wires to the switch, and everything works as it did before the install

    Have you checked the two wires you soldered on (from the auto turn on module) to see if there is continuity in them? There should not be a connection except for the 1/2 second when you flip your car to on. Sounds like it is acting like the button is always pushed down.

    lol sorry I didn't get back here in time. RSX is dead on. Sounds like the button is being pushed or something else along those two wires is being shorted. I would first check from the Jack you soldered in to your laptop power switch. If there's continuity, there shouldn't be (make sure the module plug isn't plugged into it when you check). If that's good, with the module unplugged from any power source and unplugged from the laptop, see if there is continuity on the plug coming from the module, if there is, there is a short along that line, or the power switch line...
