Here ya go! It is behind the battery.Not sure if I can tap the fuse box. Just followed the recommended power cable connection as shown on the transceiver instruction manual.
Tried running cables earlier but not able to find any access holes for it to go through. I'll check the subwoofer intall threads, if not I'll go to my Mazda dealership later on this week.
Looks good but I dont see a fuse? You want to have a fuse ~12" or less from the positive post of the battery. Would be really easy to add if its not already there, cheap insuranceFinally ran the DC cable myself through firewall. Still has to put a protective sleeve but for now it looks O.K. Thanks for that subwoofer forum link. Without it It'll cost me $170 to have the cable installed by my Mazda dealership.
I'm about to find out this weekend myself. I've got a 2014 sGT with the tech package. I installed my antenna last weekend (Comet SBB5 NMO, trunk mounted) My radio arrived yesterday and I got the power run through the firewall using the method described here and the linked audio thread yesterday as well. I will be figuring out where I'm stashing the radio (Yaesu FTM-100DR) Saturday and doing the final hookup of everything.So how do the Mazda car electronics work with your radio? Any signs of your radio getting into you Mazda's systems? How about hash showing up on your radio receiver?
Just got a Mazda3 with the Tech Package. There are so many systems on the car, I'm worried about some sort of cross interference. Don't want the brakes coming on when I squeeze my mike on 440.
Awesome. We got hams here. Always good when you can find people to share projects with.I will be figuring out where I'm stashing the radio (Yaesu FTM-100DR) Saturday and doing the final hookup of everything.
