[DML] Re: Looking for connection in Relay Compartment

In the relay compartment there are two larger silver relays under the metal  
bracket that also hold the RPM relay.  The rear most of these larger relays  
supplies power when the key is in the accessory position and ignition  position 
while the front one supplies power only when the ignition is  on.  I would 
think that you would want to use the one that supplies  accessory power so you 
could operate the modulator when the key is in the  Accessory position and not 
have to have the ignition itself on.  There is a  group of relatively fat 
white wires with a blue stripe just across from  that accessory relay that you can 
tap power off.  Don't forget to use a  fuse!.

Subject: Looking for  connection in Relay Compartment

Hi all

I have just bought an fm  modulator to use my ipod with the original craig 
radio in the car.

I  wired it up with out any problems but have been finding it difficult to 
find a  place in the 
relay compartment to put the + feed to the modulator, I dont  fancy 
connecting it directly to 
the battery.

It needs to be in a  place where it will turn off with the ignition and then 
not drain the  battery.  
I am currently using the 25amp door lock circuit breaker  which seems to be 
giving it power 
when the ignition is off and on, so I  need a better place folks!!
