grande punto switched ignition

i know it has been discussed alot but i was wondering if someone who has wired up their stereo using a switched ignition could post a picture of which wire they used so i can get a rough guess at where to look

thanks

Wow, Mine was not like that. I could just get my hand in and pop the 12v socket out. Sorry but i'm no help, lol. Can you find a switched live on the fan circuit or the ignition barrel?

Re: grande punto switched ignition

i have finally done it

this is a sort of guide

i removed the foam and removed the socket from the bottom of the 12v socket and checked the connections to find the 12v switched mine was a red and white wire

i put some clips on the wire to connect the 12v switched to a red wire i had lying round and clipped the other end to the red wire on the back of the H/U i fed the wire around the back through the gap at the bottom

i then put all the foam back in after making sure the wire worked correctly

the only thing it doesnt do is turn on when the key isnt in the ignition you have to put it to the first setting to turn it on


hope this helps

Re: grande punto switched ignition

Scotch Locks are the tool of the devil.

Solder, Heat Shrink, and inline fuse are the way forward!
