Excellent forum, huge amount of useful info, thanks to everybody for that!!!
I just got my STI Driver last week from Roy and hardwired it using Smartplug.
Well, In 3 days the fuse in the wire (in this long white thing) was burnt twice already! So, I'm trying to figure out what did I do wrong.
So, I used "Add-a-circuit" connector, and put it into "Rear window wiper and washer" fuse (10A). I added 5A fuse into this add-a-circuit plug for STI wire, thinking, that fuse in the wire is only 2A, so, 5A in the add-a-circuit would not affect anything.
Now, I'm just guessing, what could be the problem? The weird thing is that both times when it happened - it was raining, and I was using rear wiper. But I don't understand how it could be connected?
Actually, now I'm thinking - when I turn wiper on, there is a motor there, which gets much more then 2amps (but less then 10amps), and because my STI's wire is on the same connection, this ~<10A current is trying to get to STI too, burning 2A fuse on it's way.
So, if I'll move it from wiper to, let's say, lighter fuse, there should not be as much current as on wiper? Even though lighter's fuse 20A, but I never had there any load that big.
So, please, any ideas or advices? It's not much fun to open dashboard panel everyday to replace the fuse :-(
