    Default +12v on key position 1

    Hi,

    Anyone know if there is a +12v anywhere that turns on when the key is in position 1??, this is to fit my parrot kit so it turns on when i turn the key to pos 1 as i dont always want the fan ect and glow plugs running whilst sat in the car making calls ect running the battery down.

    all help appreciated

    Simon

    It depends upon the year of your car,
    It may be easier to find on Cars upto September 2004 (So called Half CAN vehicles).

    Vehicles from October 2004 are termed Full CAN cars. What this means is, that all the electronics are controlled by the modules, not simply by basic key position.

    There is a detection circuit within the ignition barrel / transducer ring, that detects when the key is put in.
    This usually puts the interior lights on when you put the key in or pul it out.

    A techy geek, could probably design a simple latching relay circuit to provide the function that you are requesting.
