I'm getting ready to install a Cheetah/M25. BMW is a E46. Battery is in the trunk. Their is a (+) terminal under the hood and I suppose I could choose any ground under the hood.
Do I take the powerSense node out of this equation like you would if you were going into a in-line fuse pack? That's what they say to do in their help section. (below) But I'm not going into a in-line fuse pack. It almost would seem as though my power connection is the same as if I was connecting directly to the battery.
It's as if BMW put this terminal under the hood for idiots who wouldn't be able to find their battery.
I would like info from someone who has had first hand experience of their own when connecting to a BMW.
My battery is in the boot? Can I still use your wireless fitting kit?
No problem. If your car has its battery in the boot or under the rear seat, simply remove the POWERSENSEnode from the set up, connect the LASERnode transmitter directly to the in-line fuse pack and hardwire it to a switched live power supply in the engine bay. This way you still donít have a difficult cable run or messy in car warning system.
