I am hard-wiring an iPod with a Clarion FM200 FM-modulator. A few questions before I do this- I have all the parts, now just time to get to work.
1) I bought a 12V DC cigarette lighter outlet from Radio Shack. It needs to draw power from somewhere. If I tap it into the cigarette lighter outlet's red power wire, will both work fine?
2) The FM200needs power, too. If I tap it into the same red power wire as above, will all three work fine? Or am I overloading that red wire? The instructions say to connect it to a 12V.
3) Where is a good place behind the dashboard to ground the FM200 and the additional cig lighter?
Sorry for the newb-style questions... but I just don't want to blow anything up.
