    Yeah, I think I found the problem. The wires to the jack were coming in contact with the edge of a heat shield and I am thinking that this is where my short was. when pulled away from it, there is no continuity. I will wrap the wires to prevent the problem and we'll see if this gets it.

    Thanks.

    steve,

    just fitted your kit to the laptop, works a treat!

    soldered to the switch, and your button switches it on/off ok, does that mean when i wire it into the ignition it will do the same?

    Thanks!

    It's going in a Dell latitude C640, I've been thinking about getting a docking station from ebay, but I don't think I need to should be easy to get to the leads on the laptop.

    All the modules should be shipping out early tomorrow. I ran out of heat shrink and don't wanna half-*** the modules, so I'm running to radio shack tomorrow morning (damn UPS being slow with my parts shipment)...

    But Thanks and Cheers...
