I have my streetcharger all mounted and looking slick.....all wires are ran except for the trigger wire..............where would be a good place to mount this???? It needs to provide the street charger with a signal to tell it to turn on.........I was given the suggestion of using the alternator (thanks ForPlay)....seeing is that it only gives off power when the car is running.......................

Any other suggestions??

hooked mine up to the amplifier turn on wire for my amps .my radio is on all the time the car is, and the wire was close plus i did not want to get into trying to find a wire under the dash. but if you do not have a wire to turn on the amplifier this wont help. aslo don't do what i did on drop this wire on to your 60 v battery terminal for you pumps lots of sparks1!!

But if you just have the key back listening to music....then you are screwed......the remote wire is one of the first things I thought of....but I listen to my music alot with the car off and my starting battery would die too quickly..............

the alt is the only thing that will only be on with the engine running. i was thinking you heater wire would be good. it would not come on with the key turned to "acc" but would turn on with the car running.

run it to the ignition wire in the ignition barrel or follow the wire loom out to the engine bay and tap it in there, then its only on when the key is in the 'on' position and not the accessory position.

I need it when the car is running....not just when it is in the "on" position

Get a test light , go to the fuse block find one of the extra holes that turns on only when the car is on, get a spade terminal put it on the end of the wire plug it in. That should work. leave the stereo shit by itself
