    Yep, but(thank God) the alternator is still working, the main battery is shot... But it's ok, because Saul(the guy who did my bezel) gave me one of his old batteries from his Civic. It's "maintenance free," but IDK if it's deep cycle or not. I was putting his new PC together, and he surprised me with it. He came in and said, "So... You've got a new battery now..." I have pix of it too. It's an MSI gaming MB, AMD Phenom II x4 3.4Ghz processor(quad-core), 8GB DDR3 RAM(Gaming RAM), and everything is EXTREMELY "over-clockable." It's fas...wait, fast is the understatement of the century... IDK

    WOOT! I got the box installed today, I can pick a total of 5 channels in this town of mine, EVEN WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD!(not advisable, though ) Just using a small accessory plug inverter to power the DAC, plugged into the Lilliput's VID1 input, and to the BUSIN on the back of my HU for sound. I ordered a switch for the BUSIN, so I can use the CarPC, the DAC, or a friends iPod through it. I am able to use the BUSIN because I installed the adapter (I mentioned it in a previous post) and now if a CD is in, the BUSIN is CD2, otherwise it's just CD.

    In other news....

    1. School starts Monday (8-17-09)
    2. With school comes my jobs (both are $7/hr)
      -tutoring
      -Technical Theatre

    That means that more $$$ will be coming in, and I can save up to get the windows re-tinted, and get a new paint job! (Hopefully no one will key it up...)

    The new battery is great news! I am looking forward to hearing about your run times with the aux battery system!

    I still use an inverter—which is a VERY bad idea. The math on the power conversion and heat loss makes leaves me consuming an extra ~70%

    From Alternator to PC there are 2 complete conversions!! AC from alternator where it internally converts to DC and produces somewhat clean power. Then, into my inverter which converts it back to AC… then into the power supply, where it converts it back to DC for the PC.

    I have not done the full math conversion—but it scares me just how much I’m losing…

    I do know, that when I kill the AUX battery, my MPG drops by Miles per Gallon… That equates to 10% of my overall gas mileage, but it is still worth it.
    .
    If a little will do a little good, then a lot will do a lot of good.

    HiJack, I got the GLI today. Is this manual accurate to the GLI you sent me?

    Also, I picked up a used Duralast Gold for $34 from the usual suspects today. 30 day warrantee, and it should be a welcome replacement to the 4lb motorcycle battery I was using. Now I just gotta make it fit...

    All I see is squigally lines and charts... lol.... I'll tell you the instructions.... Red goes to red, and white to white. The brown wires are for if the GLI cant get the noise out. Basically they are grounds for the rca ports on the GLI. You will not need to use these wires, the GLI works that good. Simply ignore them.
