Default SMC install help, positive wire has a fuse?

i just bought the kit used from a member here. No problems with the kit, everything there, it just doesn't come with the install manual. I got it installed, i just have 1 question left. The positive wire has a fuse on it, should i just put it in a blank slot in the fuse box or does it replace a fuse? please let me know, and if it replaces one, which one. - thank you in advance, MIKE

If the cable is feeding from a direct power source, it should be fused as close to the power source as possible (battery in most cases). If the power source is a connection already fused, it should not be a problem, but if uncertain, always fuse it!

It’s designed to replace the 30amp fuse for the windshield wiper circuit. A means of tapping into chassis power on a circuit which likely won’t be used in-conjunction with the alky system I suppose…

ok, so basically either one of those fuses should be REPLACED, not just stick it in an empty slot? thanks guys, MIKE

Do you have a newer kit by chance? I dug up my original instructions and they do say to replace the windshield wiper fuse to tap in for power. Although my kit is an early rev so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s been updated…

Crap.. I'm not sure now - I don't think I have the instructions anymore. I assume as long as it's a high amp circuit it's fine. I do prefer the rear defroster idea, though - even if it is wrong. The only time I use the rear defroster is when I first start the car - and I avoid spraying when the motor is still cold.
