Re: Car Audio Help

Huw, do you know the wire color on the 200.  I'll check my manuals again now
that I know what it's really called....  Nothing beeps at me whether or not
I have seatbelts on, so how the hell is it a seatbelt warning relay????
That seems absurd.  It only beeps when key is IN and door is open or radio
is left on.

I think I'm just going to tap into the appropriate wire coming out of the
back of the ignition switch, but so far no one can tell me which one it is!

Also, does anyone know how to access wires for the dash speakers (easily)??
