Can you please help with my install for an on/off switch for my detector?
I purchased hook-up wire (18G), black rocker switch (10 A, 125 VCA), and a bunch of solderless insulated male and female quick disconnects (4 each).
I have no idea what to do with these. Do I attach the female only to the rocker switch and then connect the other female end to the phone wire used for the detector? Do I even use the male connectors? Should this be wired to my cig lighter where I tapped in the detector? I feel lost..
I tried to search, but everyone says they've done it, but they don't explain how to do it. The rocker switch did not come with instructions, and the radio shack people had no clue. They just wanted to try and sell me other electronics.
Can someone please point me in the right direction? I know a lot of you have this on/off setup, so please advise on how I should proceed. I really don't want to pay someone else to do this work.
