Hook a switch up to the remote turn on and ground. Before the wiring for the amp.

you can wire the single post toggle switch to the old school 2 wire system, just ignore the ground screw (like the old switch did). no outlet skip the outlet, just use the toggle switch if you want an outlet you'll need to run a ground wire down to your electrical box

Just wire it to a toggle switch. When you need it, just flip the switch.

you can just use a toggle switch,,,you need a relay capable of the amps it takes for the starter.it would connect between the starter and the battery,then you would need a toggle switch preferably a momatary toggle switch to activate the relay.

Run a toggle switch from battery to ign. side of ign. switch.

to shut the fans on and off by yourself. remove the connector for the wires at the fan. hook a wire from the positive on fan motor to the inside toggle switch, do not hook to switch yet. run a wire from the positive on battery, hook to battery after hooking up switch. hook up the wires to the switch. then the battery. its up to you if you want to install a 15 amp fuse in line from battery to toggle switch.. you can also get the power from the fuse box instead of the battery. this should work for you. if not you may need to ground the other fan wire.

put simply you just run a wire from the switch directly to the starter bypassing the key start as you do so.

I bought what is called an "Add A Circuit" fuse link. This thing has two slots for 10 amp fuses and plugs into the "Door Sw Defeat" fuse slot. It also has a wire coming off it to add another line to it. What I did was pull the 10 amp fuse out, plugged in the Add A Circuit and plugged the fuse into the second opening of the new dual fuse holder. Then I installed a toggle switch under the dash near accessible only when the glove box is open. From the toggle switch, I connected a ground wire to it, grounded that to an existing metal screw, and the other wire connected to the wire coming from the dual fuse holder. Flipped the switch and the light turns off. The total cost was, $1.19 for the toggle switch and about 5 bucks for the Add A Circuit connector. Piece of cake! Good luck!

First you need to get the parts automotive grade wire, a fuse link, fuse, and a 3 post toggle switch. cut space in dash of the car large enough for the toggle switch in a place reachable from the driver seat wire fuse link to the positive side of the battery (do not let the other end touch any part of the motor or car this will cause the fuse to ground out) run a wire from the fuse link to the positive side of the toggle switch run another wire from the negetive side of the toggle switch to the nearest ground (area where the wire will touch body or frame of the car) run a wire from the third post on the toggle switch to the positive side of the pump run one last wire from the negetive side of the pump to another ground now turn the toggle switch to on let pump prime (allow to fill with fule) for a few seconds then fire motor

my ignition is broke and on the on position how can i bypass the ignition n use a toggle for power and a pushbutton to start run thik power wire from positive of battery to starter. then wire from starter to distributer. then run wire inside or vehicle to push start and ground it or run back out to battery to neg. put toggle switch some where in the process to kill it.

If the wire to the switch is AWG #12 you need a 20 amp switch because it is a 20 amp circuit.

I assume you are wanting to manually control the fan. Just run a positive wire from the battery to the toggle switch line side. Then run another wire from the toggle switch load side to the fan. Ground the fan at the fan location. Be sure and use a large enough gage wire to handle the current and an in line fuse to protect the circuit.

I have a clarion unit and what i did was run the green brake wire to chassis ground, tap in a toggle switch by cutting the green wire & wiring the green wire to the toggle switch. When the clarion unit is on all you have to do is turn the switch off then on, and that will bypass the brake switch allowing to watch video moving or sitting. Mine works perfect.

A good way is to run the power wire directly from the positive terminal of the vehicles battery,you can purchase adaptors for the batery terminal that will allow you to safely connect to it....run the power wire into the firewall and out under the dash to a toggle switch,be sure to install an in-line fuse of the correct amp before you hook the power wire to the toggle switch,then run a wire from the switch to where ever your amp is. This gives your amplifier a dedicated circut and it can draw as much power as it needs without interfering with anything else in the car, it also prevents blowing fuses from having to connect to other power sources that may be running other things in the car and it reduces the chances of over heating any part of the cars exsisting wiring system... PS.. be sure to use the appropriate gage wire comming from the battery terminal to the toggle switch..

You would have to literally run a wire from the battery through a fuse and then to a toggle switch and then on to the backup lights, this will only function when the switch is on and will have nothing to do with the transmission being in reverse. This is essentially the same as putting a toggle switch across the transmission mounted switch (assuming the transmission switch is not shorted).

the same way you'd install any toggle switch. run your lines from the battery and the ignition to the power and remote switches on the amp. if you follow the directions on the box and the amp doesn't shut off because you've inadvertantly hooked the remote switch to the clock power or some constant source, then take whatever switch you have and simply add it inline between the battery and the amp. blaow. have a gin and tonic and sit in the car and wwitch your amp off and on. it'll be awesome.

Find the Hot side of the switch (Where there is voltage regardless of position of toggle on switch). Tie in new Black wire to GFCI. On wire nut with white wire tie in new white wire to GFCI. Do the same for the bare ground wire, if there is one.

The new switch is a 3 way switch which requires a common and 2 traveler's. The switch can be identified by no on off marks on toggle part on face of switch. Unless that third wire is a ground wire.

Wire them in parallel with each other, being careful not to exceed the amp ratings of the switch and circuit breaker.

Toggle = back and forth, or on and off. A toggle switch toggles (turns) a light or other device on or off. Good example is a light switch (the wall kind)-- a toggle switch must also be of the "throw the stick back and forth" kind. Which a light switch basically is.

The definition to toggle means to move from one position to another. In a switch it means moving the handle of the switch from the off to the on position. A toggle switch can also be classified as a single pole single throw switch.

Fallow the wire harness that runs to the fire wall if there is no room you can drill a hole in the middle of the firewall on side that the battery is located if you are mounting the amp in the trunk you can always make a ground location in the trunk best to use a power cable that has a fusible link as a precaution. Then in side the car i found it best to run it under the trim or carpet to avoid being moved around or pulled on from people getting in and out. Then run your Remote Ground right down the middle of the car placing it under the carpet then under back seat hiding it from harm as well. A little tip though i run a toggle switch on the remote ground to avoid any problems with a short in a wire a shorted wire can cause the amp to stay on and pull power from the battery draining it. The toggle switch does get annoying but it will brake the circuit so this does not happen. That and I know of two persons cars that have caught on fire from a shorted wire your call on the toggle switch.

A temporary fix would be to run the power for the fan directly to the battery. You would need a toggle switch to make it easier on yourself. Find which cable belonging to your fan is the one that conducts the power, on my car its the black and red one. You'll have cut off some plastic off that wire and then connect a good a wire from that one to the toggle switch, then run a wire from the toggle switch fo the positive post on your battle. The switch is need to be able to turn the fan on and off so you will have to find a way to run the switch into the cabin.
