Aux fusebox
« on: October 24, 2014, 10:22:37 »



£25 [edit: now April 2015 £27.00 posted] I will include 3 blade fuses too if you tell me what values you want, along with the other end of the bullet connectors to crimp on to your accessories power leads.

Plugs in just under the tank and will power your accessories when the ignition is on.

Can make more to order.

Thanks

Excellent value, similar items on the BMW forums are offered at double this price.
What do the trigger wires connect to, to activate the powering relay?

there's a connector just under the tank, it is for the tail light.

I'll have one too.

Do you need to remove the tank to find the switch plug?

Nope, I just prop it up on the prop and the plug is visible. Locals are welcome to collect and have a hand plugging it in.

EDIT Glasgow is not local :D I can do an install video if it would help.

A neat looking job.

Something to consider for the mkII is make the Black (0V) crimp connectors male, saves any accidents if connecting polarity conscious equipment.

Assuming the end user is not colour blind  :)

It's also a widely accepted convention to wire connectors like that.

Yes, convention says that the power carrying end of a cable is female and insulated. Automobiles and aircraft are all this way.
Think about sockets and plugs in your house. Stops the user getting electrocuted!

The relay trigger wire connection looks to be for the wires to the rear brake light switch. One wire would be live with the ignition on and the other would be live when the brake light is on.The relay trigger wire would be connected to the former. That's a neat little package.
