HOW TO ADD A CIRCUIT TO YOUR CAR
Step 1: Materials and Tools
For this project you will only need a few things.
The materials are the following:
an add-a-fuse adapter + a suitable fuse (There are different sizes.
Use the size that your fuses have.)
some wire with the right cross-section (see down below)
isolation tape and zip ties
crimp connectors (ring, flat and wire to wire)
a switch that can handle the current your need or a smaller switch
+ a relay (magnetic switch)
your new device (a phone charger in my case)
And you will also need a basic set of tools including:
a pair of pliers and a wire cutter
a crimping tool
a screwdriver + different bits and nuts
When you picked everything up go to your car and start working.
Choosing the correct wire size is very important . If the wires are
to thin they overheat and can cause a fire. A simple formula to
determine the size you need is this one:
( I x L x 0,018 ) / U = A
I : the current that will flow through your cables
L : the total length of the wires in meters ( in this case from the
fuse box to your grounding)
U : The maximum Voltage loss you want to have in your wiring ( I
recommend 0,5 V)
A : the right cross section in mm^2 (for americans there are tables
to find the AWG equivalent)
Step 2: Measuring Your Fuse Slots
The first thing you need to do is locate your fuse box. It can be
under the hood or inside your dashboard or both, many modern cars
have more than one fuse box. Your owners manual will tell you were
Open it and use your fuse removal tool to remove one fuse at a
time. Connect the negative wire of your multimeter to your cars
body, set it to 20V DC and measure the voltage of both pins. First
measure without the key plugged in.
If a slot's pin shows 12V this means 2 things:
This slot does always have power. You would use such a slot for
devices such as an alarm system or our charger that should be able
to charge a phone while the car is parked.
It is the input, the other pin is the output and should measure ~
0V more on that in the next step.
Reinsert the fuse and mark the slot with a post-it or some tape.
If you need a slot that is powered when the key is in position 1
for devices like a radio, you search for a slot that has no power
when the key is not inserted, but is powered when it's in position
one. Mark it in a different colour if you are connecting more than
If you want a device to only have power in key position two, you
follow a similar procedure.
Keep on measuring until you found the right slot for your
