Re: Car not starting with brake

It is attached to the brake pedal . It is the same one an ICE Focus uses. It is the highlighted piece in this diagram. It doesn't look easy to get to poking around under the dash. It looks like there are You Tube videos available. http://www.russellrjames.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/brake-light-s...

Re: Car not starting with brake

Press on the brake pedal and see if the brake lights in the tail light up. If not, the switch that tells the car that the pedal is depressed is not working. You should hope it is that easy fix. And never discount disconnecting the battery for a minute or so and then reconnecting. That reboot of the ...

Re: Fuse Box- What's Hot What's Not

Okay, new problem. Once the car turns on and the power is on, the main battery is charging the 12V and the meter reads over 14. The goal was to see what the voltage was before the car starts. Looks like I may have to tap into the cigar lighter/powerpoint fuse and have the thing glow for ten minutes ...

Re: Fuse Box- What's Hot What's Not

That voltmeter in the lighter is what I have now. I just wanted something that would shut off when the car shut off. I don't get why the cigarette lighter would be engineered to stay on for fifteen minutes.

Fuse Box- What's Hot What's Not

Trying to hook up a voltmeter to display only when the ignition is on. I bought what is basically a fused splitter that plugs into the fuse box and provides an additional power lead out. But no matter what fuse I've tried so far in the box under the glove compartment, they are all hot even with the ...

Re: Added Voltmeter?

Yes, it still stays on for a while no matter what you do. Not sure how long, it does eventually shut down. I'm not sure why it was designed that way.

Added Voltmeter?

Has anyone added a voltmeter display to their car? I have one that plugs into what used to be called a cigarette lighter in the console, but it stays on long after the car shuts off. I was thinking of one that would be run through an circuit that opened when you opened the door to the car and shut o...
