So, my blinder m-20 that I bought and installed in January seems to have a problem. I'm thinkin' I just have to go in and check the wires, but whaddya think? Everything was working fine and has actually saved me 2 times now. But, when I went in to re-wire my V1(got the concealed display and volume unit), and a little after that, my blinder stopped doing its self-test on startup. If any of you know the wiring of the wrx, I have the V1 mounted high(above rv-mirror) and wired to the map lights. The concealed display is in the dash where the clock used to be, and the volume unit is stuck to the side of my center console next to my shifter. My warning light for the blinder and the speaker are both mounted in the dash where the clock was. The speaker is hidden underneath and the light is right next to the concealed display. So, when I get lasered I just have to look at one place to verify both are working! I have my V1 grounded under the map light which works great. My blinder om/off switch is a different switch than supplied. Its basically the same except that it has a led, so it has to be grounded. The base(main connection unit) for the blinder is in the same place as the concealed display and hidden like the speaker, inside the dash under where the clock used to be. Both the blinder main unit and the on/off switch are grounded to the same wire. The same ground wire the clock used. I did not tap another ground for those. I'm not sure if that would create a ground loop...or if it would make a difference. The switch is mounted in the center console by the e-brake and above the cupholder. In doing the install of all this gear, I had to run wires for the blinder on/off switch through the console and behind the head unit. After all that information, would you think a wire is shorting somewhere? Bad connection? Every once in a while when I startup, I hear it for a milisec, then it just goes green. When I plugged in my engine management into my obd2 port, it did the self-test. It did not work today as I was going over a brigde. 2 motorcycle cops, both lasering. I was only doing 35, so no problems, but whaddya' think?
Sorry for such a long post...better to have more info than not enough oh and hello everyone I'm Justin.
