EA82 "free" extra electric circuit

Recommended Posts

This applies to those underprivilaged souls driving EA82's without power door locks.


Those of you with power door locks will just have to look elsewhere for your freebies!


I searched for something relavant to this and got no hits, so here goes:


I discovered something rather interesting while researching a solution to supplying power to power windows when the ignition is off (see http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/showthread.php?t=40086).


Fuse 19 (power door locks) has power supplied to it all the time in cars with power door locks - which is well known. What may not be so well known is that it exists and has power EVEN IN CARS WITHOUT POWER DOOR LOCKS!! So you have a source for an extra circuit - up to the 20A the door locks used - without doing any work! I've checked this in several non-power door lock cars and it seems to hold up. Some of the cars I checked even had the 20A fuse installed.


I hope this saves someone some work.
