RalPh Posted May 16, 2008 Report Share Posted May 16, 2008 OK, so now I've got this '05 STS and I want to install the radar detector, laser jammer, (yea, I know.. from my old car. BUT, this thing is a networked system and a bit more complicated. I have two thoughts, 1) if I used a relay (I used to pair a reed relay with a 30A "ice cubes" coil to make old cell phones blow the horn) and connect to a large accessory circuit (that wouldn't "notice" the draw) to supply power directly from the battery (now converted to "keyed" power) 2) something could be created, or purchased, that would sense 14V (engine running) to convert batt/keyed I was disappointed to find the cigarette lighter had constant power in it What are others doing for accessories?
