Voltmeter wiring

Recommended Posts


I've got myself a second hand voltmeter so I can keep an eye on my battery as it only does short runs.

Now for the tricky part, can someone tell me a good place to wire it into?

I'm going to mount it somewhere along the dash so I can get to the wiring behind the binnacle easily.

the voltmeter will need a earth connection, gauge illumination to existing gauges, take a power feed from any white wire off the ignition switch or the cluster of white wires behind the instrument pack, or take the power straight off the battery +ve terminal & through a relay connected like this
