    Electrical Help Please

    Hey,

    Can anyone tell me which wires behind the door card can give me live (with the ignition on) and earth.

    This would be a big help!

    Thanks Ross.

    Earth is going to be Brown

    There is a Black wire going to the window switchs which is accessory live but this is only controlled via a 5 amp fuse. There's no ignition live that I can see

    It really depends on what your planning to hook up to them? You have to remember that everything has a rating and you dont want to overload the circuit you tap - you'll just keep blowing fuses or worse.

    Let me know what you plan to install and I'll see what I can advise.

    A boost gauge - (one that is smoked and lights up when the ignition is turned on) Would this work if connected to black wire that goes to windows switches? Thanks for your help guys!

    Thanks! Im guessing this black wire would only be live when the ignition is on?
