J11 Head Unit - Power when ignition off?

Post by JamieB90 » Mon Sep 14, 2020 6:27 am

Good Morning

Does the electrical systems in the J11 allow me to put a perminant feed to the head unit in place of the ignition feed without any knock on effects?

I have installed a flat screen running on android, and I can only power it on when the ignition is on, which canes the battery.

I am thinking if I can remove the Ignition feed altogether and put in tape or a crimp, then route a perminant feed to go in (fused of cource), and put in a switch to control it - just like the good old days.

Has someone else done this with success, or can confirm if it will fail?

Regards

Jamie
