I smoothed the grab handle on my boot a while ago and since my cars off road for a while I havent cracked on with finishing it. Now the cars back on the road in 2 weeks, I want to get it sorted.
I wired everything up like the said and no joy. It popped open once when I turned the ignition on but then a fuse blew. Got a new fuse, pissed about with the wires abit and now I get nothing what-so-ever.
The button is mounted in the roof of my glovebox.
Pin 1 - Goes to an ignition source (glovebox light)
Pin 2 - Goes to a relay
Thats the relay I have used.
Red Wire (on the left) goes to the solenoid.
Black wire (at the bottom) goes to a earth.
Blue Wire (on the right) goes to the switch.
Thats the solenoid in the boot. Are them wires going to the correct place?
Green wire is going to the relay
Blue wire is going to an earthing point
I know the solenoids mounted correctly as it popped open when I blew a fuse.
Does all this look correct? If not, what's wrong? My relay still has 2 spare 'slots', does it matter if they are used or not? Theres markings on the relay- 85, 86, 87, 87a and 30. I guessed that the earth was the 30? As you can see I put the wires horizontal (think its 85 and 86).
What do I do with my old wires? This solenoid has only 2 wires coming out where as my old one (wires are dangeling still) has about 8. Do i just duct tape this to something so its out of the way?
Sorry about size of pics btw and I hope this makes abit of sense.
Thanks in advance
