I can only hope for a blown fuse at this point

    SOOO i thought it would be a good idea to source power for a daystar rocker switch from the same power my headunit uses, and same ground although the switch has:
    power in, power out, ground.
    so i hookd power in up, no problem light auctually turned on and i hooked up ground to the chassis, then i hooked up power out and flipped the switch and now my headunit wont turn on :/ , any help? Or am i out 150 for a new head unit? :(:(:confused::confused:

    You need to use a relay in conjunction with the switch. I am not sure what you did, check everything is wired correct and make sure the fuse on the back of the head unit isn't blown.

    There may also be a fuse on the back on head unit you can check as well

    Audio system fuse is a 30A in slot 11 in the fuse box behind the battery in my 2009. There's a diagram on page 396 of my manual. Assuming yours is the same as mine, it's easy to find.

    What are you trying to switch power to with the switch? Taco Terror is right on when he said you need to control a relay coil with the switch, and route power to whatever you are switching power to using the relay contacts and a different power source.
