What is the power wire on an evo-all

0 votes
Does anyone know the power wire on the evo-all?  My lights require more than 10amps. The directions say if they require more than 10 amp to wire from battery to the power wire. It doesnt state or show on the directions what wire this is.

You need to wire a relay if the vehicles parking lights are POSTIVE trigger. The output on the evo-all is a negative trigger.  You need to convert the negative to positive. Power is not supplied by the EVO but by wherever you will get the 12V source from.

 

take a look at this: http://www.the12volt.com/12voltimages/neg2pos.gif

Relay is triggered via a negative trigger and outputs 12V.

If this is an EVO-FORT1, it shows you on in the isntallation guide how to wire the relay.
I have it wired with a relay just like the picture. The dash lights will light up but not the parking lights. I checked the wire i tied into on the back of the light switch. It shows 12V when the parking lights are on. The Dash lights will come on but not the parking lights. The directions say the T-Harness is only capable of 10amps max. If your lights require more than 10amps to run a wire from the battery to the power wire. It does not say what the power wire is. It is the evo-FORT.  It says this on top of page 3 on the left.

The directions say the T-Harness is only capable of 10amps max. If your lights require more than 10amps, to run a wire from the battery to the power wire. It does not say what the power wire is

At the battery?

Run a wire, put a fuse on it, connect it to the postive terminal of the battery.

 

Which model vehicle is this?

it is a 2011 ford escape. I understand how to run a wire from the battery and put a fuse in it.  Where do i tie in the other end??  It does not state where to hook it and it does not state what the "power" wire is on the evo-all.
power wire from the battery will go to pins 86 and 87 on the relay, just like the picture shows in the install guide
here you go. I dont think you were looking at the right guide.

Thank you for the install info. I did connect the relay to the battery and it does not work. If you read what it says it states you have to connect the remote starts power wire directley to the battery, not the relay. It does not state what the power wire is on the remote start.
Im haveing this same problem the module wont turn on when programing it to the car its a 2014 ford focus. I was thinking it might be the red wire from the data link cable comeing from the t harness and then the black can be grounded to the car. I havent tryed this yet but thats all i can think where it would go.
