I need an ignition source for my cd head unit in my 1989 Defender v8 110.
The previous owner did some odd splicing of the wires. The power to the cig lighter is constant, not ignition. The stock radio wires seem to only be constant (brown wire should be ignition?)
- is there a ignition source I could use behind the fuse box? (Perhaps radio fuse.. Cig lighter..)
- I should there an easy ignition to tap into the big white wire from the key? Where do I find it
Car turns on/off fine always. Dash lights never turn on with light switch, it's ground is fine. (side question, if you know where I can find the positive wire to make the dash lights work please share, but behind the clusters is too tight to work in. I could tap the gauge + into the ignition, or an easy to reach light power source of you know one.)
Thanks, I need to get this done this afternoon! Please be patient, electrical is my weakness!
