you can do yes. how i don't know. would be better than hardwiring it aswell. just make sure your engine is running when your using it though :lol:

oki, cant i just turn the ignition on coz that needs to be on for my neons to work, or will that run me battery down even more if im playing on it without the engine actually fully on?

wo wo wo mate, if you do that you could blow your ps2 or the inverter. the cig lighter connector has a fuse in it, so if you chop that off your risking it.
do you have the ps2 slimline or the fat ps2?
either way this is what i connected the battery to the inverter

what you do is cut off the male end of that, and directly connect it to the battery. then when if you plug in the inverter, youll still have a fuse on it.
if you have a slimline, its much "better" as its smaller as it doesnt need an inverter, just a downstep, or ps2 slimline in car adapter

just a guess as this is how i've hidden wires but not sure what the wires are link on that adaptor but........

cut the wires between the 12v plug and the box, remove ciggy lighter and drill a hole through the 2nd from left hole and feed the wires through. release the torx screw at the end of the centre tunnel on passenger side and feed the other end of the wires up through here and reconnect to the other end via terminal blocks. then feed the wire that connects into the ps2 behind the glovebox and drill a hole and feed wire into glovebox and connect to the ps2.

hopefully that makes sense :lol:

ooo i see so the only thing will be just the concetor in the lighter socket but all the wires wil lbe hidden. prob the best that ya can do with it to be honest, will have a go and see.

but surely i can just as u said cut the wires between the 12v plug an the box and just wire those to the ciggy lighter so no socket has to go in the lighter socket at all?

sorry to be abit repetative but just gettin me head round it lol

get one of these....

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CAR-CIGARETTE...oryZ9885QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

cut the clips off

run 2 wires from the battery (positive and negative) putting a 10 amp fuse i think (yellow one anyway) in each line and run them into the footwell through the grommet. connect the cigarette lighter socket to each of the wires. get one of those in car ps2 power leads off the bay and plug in, job done! thats how i've powered mine.

don't bother with an invertor, it will drain your battery much quicker

the in car power lead specificly for the slimline ps2.

note: it must be a slimline one. if you have a normal one u will have to use an invertor but i recommend u get a slimline one as they dun use as much power as the big ones.

in simple terms, you have the wires behind the glovebox, with the ps2 slimline plug going through a hole in ur glovebox.
you connect this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CIGAR-LIGHTER...6QQihZ004QQcategoryZ15329QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
directly to you battery, by cutting the MALE end off of it.

you then get this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sony-PS2-In-C...ryZ11319QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
and plug it into the the FEMALE end of the extender. all of this is done behind the glovebox.

i couldnt make out what corsa_mark was saying about drilling or whatever, but this is the easiest way to do it, and jamie_sxi can back me up on this

do that ^^^ :thumbs:

that for sure will work, much easier than my method aswell and you'll have no plugs showing.

what was your method in laymans terms lol, cos it sounded complicated, yet interesting
i'll try and explain :lol:

he was on about using the invertor so i said.......

chop the "power" cable and cut hole in the coin holder

then feed the wire from plug through the hole and rejoin the other end using terminal blocks but hide the box bit behind the centre console

and run the wire behind glovebox and drill a hole and connect to ps2.


hopefully thats a bit clearer :lol:
