Jupiter S4 Compass Question

Postby IndianaKnight » Fri Mar 04, 2016 1:56 pm

I'm doing my wiring diagrams and building my wiring harnesses for my dash. I have the Jupiter compass board with the functional compass but it still has connections for the left amd right turn signals and reverse. Does anyone know how the functional compass reacts to inputs on those terminals? The directions aren't really clear.

Can you post, or send me, the diagram that you have? I may be able to help you.

It's not the wiring that I have a problem with. The instructions are pretty clear on how to wire it, but the wiring for the non-functional compass is the same as the wiring block for the functional compass board. I'm just not sure how the compass will react when I give it an input on the left turn signal terminal, for example. Will the turn signal over ride the compass display?

I guess I'll just find out in a couple weeks when I get it all plugged in and fire it up.

Do you have 12v desktop power supply to test the board with before you place it in the vehicle?

2 things you want to comfirm.
1 ... what input does the compass need to respond to those signals. 12v or ground.

2 ... what is signal in the car, at the cluster, that you'll be tapping into for the compass?

If memory serves me correctly. Your dash signals are 12v when active. What is the compass calling for.

How are you connecting the power distribution your dash electronics?
I ask cause I have built a module that acts as a power distribution center that is fused at 10 amps. It ties into the kitt voice box and activates the dash AFTER the count up sequence is complete. Like in the show. ... info can be found in the merchandise section of this forum. I current have 2 ready for immediate shipping.

From what I recall many years ago, it will flash the West / East with Left Right turn signal....

I do remember it does not smooth scroll (unless he changed it up since).
