How to install a wired fuse between battery and amp

Fuse rating is based on the guage of wire it's to protect.
Install the fuse holder close ...within a battery positive connection.
You may require a different battery cable clamp to accept your new amp wire (and the existing wiring).
Occasionally, it's possible to use an unused location in a vehicles power distribution panel (the fuse box close to the battery - under the hood). Sometimes appropriate for small to mid-draw amps, in certain vehicles, where some high draw options were not factory installed.

Installing a temporary horn button

IF this is really just temporary, locate the wire going to the horn(s)
Find where you`re going to get the +12V feed, direct from the battery, cigarette lighter, spare hot terminal at fuseblock. any place that`s hot with the key switch off.
Connect one wire of the inline fuse holder to the +12V source you have selected.
If you don`t know for sure that the horn(s) are OK run a wire from the other side of the fuse holder to the horn feed, and connect temporarily, it should honk.
If all is well there run that fused wire to one side of your switch and the other side to the horns.
That`s it.

How to connect the 3 amp fuse of fish finder eagle cuda300 ?..

Hi razta23,

Didn't you get an instruction manual with your fish finder?
Fuse holders are not all alike. I'll try to explain how the common inline fuse holder is connected.

First, be sure there is no power to your wire.
Locate a good place on the wire that will be convenient for you should you need to change the fuse. Cut the wire in that place. Strip off the insulation just far enough so that there is no bare wire showing when the holder is together.
Twist the strands of the cable tightly together. Slide the endcaps from the fuse holder onto the wires first. Then put the crimp from the holder on the wire and squeeze with a crimping tool or pliers with "teeth", something that will dig the crimp tight in the wire. Do this for both cut ends of the cable.
Put the fuse inside the holder and twist the endcaps back on. Pull lightly to see if you have a good connection.
Reconnect the power and check that the fishfinder works.

hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Everytime i hook up the power source it fries the fuse

usually this happens because A: The speaker wires are shorted, B: if not this then usually the "Output" devices, the IC's or transistors that "Drive" the speakers has faulted, a very common occurance, it also may be a polarity issues. Check for shorts on the speaker wires make sure the wires for power are ok.

Constant power to it, draining battery

When connecting the power supply to a car stereo you have to make sure that the power cables are not connected directly to the battery. In most cases you have a red cable with a fuse holder with a bigger gauge yellow cable, also with a fuse holder. First things first. to get rid of the problem I would really advice to get a stereo wiring harness, which you can find at Wal-Mart or your nearest stereo install shop. Then what you want to do is go and buy a current tester from auto zone or auto parts store, or if on a very tight budget nearest dollar store current tester would do for this project. After doing that carefully remove the stereo. then look for your power cables coming from the car. When that is done carefully connect the matching wires and you should not get a battery drainage anymore. Hope this works for you.

Xplod to a jvc

I would recommend using an 8 AWG minimum or preferably 4 AWG power and ground cable. Use as short a ground lead as possible and connect it directly to some chassis metal (avoid accidentally screwing into the gas tank if in trunk). Use a fuse holder with a 40 - 60 amp fuse under the hood within 18 inches of the battery. Your RCA cable coming from the back of the JVC radio should be run to your amp along with the remote turn on lead. This wire should connect to the JVC's amplifier turn on lead which should be a blue wire with a white stripe.
