I cut the wires running to the accessory outlet – hot and ground (the one next to the ash tray under the center console) and tapped that as the source of power for my carputer. Everything was working nicely but I needed to take the car in for some repairs on the CD changer, so I removed all the carputer components and I loosely wire nutted the accessory outlet wires back together (so I can imagine them coming off without anyone noticing).
When I got my car back the guy told me whoever installed the ipod adapter in my car cut some wires they weren’t supposed to (theres no ipod adapter in my car btw) and that they did a few "repairs" to it even though its not under warranty. When I got the car back, the wire nuts I stuck on was gone and the wires were free floating AND there’s no more current. AND I don’t see any repairs.
What do you guys think would be the most likely cause of this? A blown fuse (how do I know which one it is, btw - theres so many)? I called them back, except the guy who worked on my car wasn’t in, and the guys working hours clashes with my schedule, and they were a little annoying so I would rather not call again. Thanks guys.
EDIT: yeah it was a fuse, thanks, ajgonzales, for telling me that there is a chart on the cover
