Default Scanmaster 2 Help

I recently wired the scan master 2 using solder for all three wire connections and used heat shrink wrap over the connected joints. When turning on the ignition and powering up the scan master the display is very dim and starts blinking then shuts off. Any ideas as to what could cause this problem?? Any trouble shooting tips would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like the ground may not be connected to a proper spot.

Default Thank you Bob


Thank you Bob for the information you gave me. I was also wondering does it matter which "ignition" on the fuse panel to use. In my fuse panel, on the left hand side there are three labels that are marked "IGN" with nothing in the slots and that is where I plugged one of my wires into for the scan master. Then there is another "IGN" on the circuit board with a fuse installed in that slot. Does it matter which "IGN" slot I use is my question???? I will search for another ground location. I will probably run a wire to the back of my firewall and mount it there. Thank you once again for your expertise.
