ictdog wants to know Dino or Syn?
Need another accessory power source?

I have installed the J&M Bluetooth Cell-Phone/GPS/Radar Integration 1998-2013 Harley Ultra kit on my 07 Ultra and it has been running great. I got the idea to add a Hogtunes Big Ultra kit and got it installed also. I tried it sitting in the garage and worked great.

But when I went to test run it, I lost speakers, turn signals and cruise. I checked the fuses on the left panel and found a 15 amp fuse smoked. I replaced it, and everything was back on. Started the bike again and blew it again.

Now, both the J&M and Hogtunes use the lighter port for power (J&M for all power and Hogtunes uses a connection for remote turn on "the orange wire for the remote turn on lead and tells the amp to turn on whenever it sees +12v ,.5 amp min.").

So apparently this is my issue but where can I find another power sensing accessory port in the fairing?

Any ideas for a quick fix...?

Try this place.... http://www.crutchfield.com/S-K7fpCGc...-Hardware.html

They make quality power distribution blocks. I'd guess the amp id drawing some serious amps. Doesn't it sense the audio signal to power the unit?

Yes...it has it's own power line connected to the battery. According to the manual, "the orange wire for the remote turn on lead and tells the amp to turn on whenever it sees +12v ,.5 amp min.")...this is the wire that connects to the lighter power

Update: I did remove the J&M BT module power from the lighter power and the Hogtunes audio was fine even after starting.,..now I need to figure out how to power the BT module. Accessory switch?

it sounds like you need to run a fused power lead off the battery up to the fairing (use a string to feed it under the tank, protect it with flex loom)

and use your accessory wire to turn on a relay, that powers up all your add ons from the battery wire.

talk to someone you know who does car stereo,a dn they can walk you thru it.

HTH?
