just wondering if anyone knows the best route to wire them in , the best bet to me seems to tee in to the wire that supplies the flashing led built into the clock , good or bad idea , thanks in advance --- paul :L
just making it a bit more visible , the led and a holder only cost 50 odd pence from maplin and they are 12 v so i wont have to mess about with a resistor , and the way most of the mk 3 dashbord just unclips has made it a doddle to drill a hole into the heater vent near the window and then route the wires to the clock , just need to find out which wire i need that goes into the clock now :whistling:
sure its yellow with a thin red line running through it and its on the back of the ignition barrel....a test light will show this up...it only becomes live when the ignition is off and with the ignition on the test light will go off.........
now that has thrown me , my logic was ........ , if i get a multimeter and find the wire that pulsed then i had found the wire i could tap into to power the extra led / led's , not sure that it sounds so good now , if i did find that wire would i be on the wrong track or not i wonder
right ............... , so far so good , i have pulled the connector off the back of the clock , i have found the permanent live no problem but i am now struggling as to how to find the alarm negative pulsed wire , i have a choice of 3 and i dont want to go blowing fuses if i can help it , if anyone has a mk 3 manual that could help out i would really appreciate it :L , the permanent live is red / yellow if i remember correctly :whistling:
Looking at the alarm led on a freshly opened mk3 clock........
Alarm led live is the bottom right and the negative for it is the bottom left.
These are as you look at the plug the right way up and have the pin holes facing you
