Fixing A Wiring Mess...Now I Have Radio! YAY!!
I lifted the top of the dash off, and was greeted with an unbelievable rats nest of wire, and for the most part no juice anywhere that it should be.
The best and easiest choice was to install a solenoid control fuse panel and move all the extra electronic add on items to a good source of protected power.
I hooked the solenoid directly to the battery with a 40 amp circuit breaker protecting the 10 gauge supply wire. That fed the fuse panel and each item now has it's own fuse. Now I can easily narrow down any electrical problems, and more importantly the Sony CD/FM/AM radio in the dashboard is no longer a mystery.
I've actually got tunes, and I can plug my GPS into the 12vdc power point and avoid getting lost. Of course getting lost can be a lot of fun too!
