Ghetto Fuse block. Usual BS Disclaimer. I said it before, and I’ll say it again. I’m a muppet, and I have a tendency to screw things up. This is a guide only. There’s ten ways to do this. This is one of them. You have been warned.
Sorry for the shit pics. I was too lazy to break out the canon, and take some decent pics. As it stands this gives you a decent idea of what I was after.
So I went down to the local nerd store and picked up the following:
- 10 position terminal strip (hard plastic)
- 10 position jumper strip (cut in half, half of it taped)
- 3 Prong Terminal strips
- In line fuse
- 30 Amp 2 pole relay
- To the top right. 3 Prong terminal. Pretty slick set up, you open the orange gate, and slide the wire in. If you need to remove that wire, open the orange gate. Repeat for the others that are common to each other. Posi-tap is the blue one. I didn’t end up using the red inline tap. 30 amp 2 pole relay. 10 position terminal strip with jumper bar split in the middle
I picked up some other things that amounted to less than $30 all in.
Plan was to allow my battery tender to be hooked up at all times, and the rest of the accessories to be powered off 12 V accessory power. One ring connection on the positive and negative post.
Someone on the FZ forum suggested the tail light. Off came the side covers, and the latch mechanism. I removed the tail light, and stripped the wires back.
The wire I was after was the blue/red (parking light). I used a posi-tap, to cut into the parking light. I then Installed the relay and 3 prong terminal block next to the battery. They are not secured as of yet, but I highly doubt they will go anywhere. At this point, I’m ready to wire all my accessories, off 12V acc power.
I’ll doodle up a diagram tomorrow morning, and post it up, with a further explanation.
