Default Re: Hello and need some help please

It would not be a very good idea to run the power wire underneath the vehicle, as if by some chance you do create a short, it will most likely weld itself to the floorpan, or where ever the short happens. My advice to you would be to run the power wire on the same side of the car as the battery. Sometimes you can find an accessory hole in the firewall, via a rubber plug, or most likely you will need to drill a hole through the firewall. Just make sure you are not drilling into any wiring or the back of your dash. Make sure you use a grommet so as not to short the wire at the firewall. You should be able to remove the sill plate and run the wire under the carpet. When you come to the seat belt anchor bolt, make sure you run the wire underneath the bolt, that way the carpet will lay flat. You can then run the interconnects down the other side of the car or the middle of the car (if you are using low level interconnects). Make sure you make a good ground. If you have a DMM, make sure you measure the resistance at the ground. It should be zero at all times, even when you try to wiggle the wire around. (DMM - Digital Multi Meter)
