Wire Splices for 12v
Posted by: corvairne ()

On a 65 wire loom I going to tap into black/pink wire for constant 12v for Ignitor II. Can I also tap this same wire for 4 barrel electric choke which needs ignition activated 12V source or is this too much for one wire?

The Choke would cause a voltage drop..

Install a small Bosch type relay..done all the time... Wiring is in our FAQ's

Look for "adding relay"

I'm sorry but I know nothing about relays or auto electrical but I can learn. Checked FAQ's and searched forum but did not find anything that answered my basic questions. Do I need two relays for two accessories, 4 pin or 5 pin, draw off one wire or two? Thanks for any help with this.

Here you go! 4 term Bosch type relay... usually $3 at any FLAPS

Do not pay attention to colors!! This is Generic!

That second purple wire is really wiggly. GGG. I'd probably have tried it on the one wire but Matt is always right and I have no experience there, relay is cheap, easy and will work great.
