Will this work, electrical question
In reference to this Post
I thinking about installing a marine switch box in the glove compartment. Just wondering if this wiring would work.

Which relay are you using, looks like a standard relay to me, but want to make sure.

From the wiring you have, a relay is point less, because the relay solenoid will be energized all the time, unless the power input has a switch on it.
I would do the following.
Pin # typical 4 pin relay
85 = ground
86 = power from ignition source
87 = going to your accessories postive terminal (+)
30 = going from the battery with fuse inline
see here for a diagram http://www.ado13.com/techs/relay.htm
Make sure all you accessories are ground, negative terminal (-).

From the info Lafjax posted, it is a standard relay 12vdc/30A from radio shack.

Just for everyone information a relay is to operate high current devises, ie high wattage bulbs, or motors, off a low current input. Pin 86 power source should be no more than an amp or so, this pin is the solenoids power terminal (ignition source), Pin 85 is the solenoids ground terminal. Pin 30 is the power input from the battery use at least a 10 gauge wire, and pin 88 goes to the accessories (bulbs or other high wattage, amps, devises). These high wattage devises will need to be grounded.

Bruinsme, you can wire the relay like in the diagram I have provide and eliminate the extra swiches or eliminate the relay since you already have switches.
If you go the relay route, do a search for hella relays. Hella makes a waterproof relay.

According tothe 07 manual
Red wire - directly to the battery
Red with Tracer - FUSED from battery
Purple - Continuous power on with DESS key
Purple with tracer - Switched power with DESS key.
So tying 30 to 86 wouldn't work?

Well then I think I will take the easy way out and elimanate the relay.

I am assuming you are talking about the wire for pin 30, just install a waterproof fuse going to the positive battery terminal.
