Best way to wire "PlasmaGlow" "El Wire" together to a single ON/Off Toggle switch?
Application is for car interior. Plasma Glow sells their EL Wire in 5ft and 10 ft lengths. I currently have this set-up in my car:
10 ft dash board
x2 10ft rear doors (a 10ft per door panel)
x2 10ft front doors (a 10ft per door panel)
X2 5 ft front doors (a 5ft per door panel)
as you can see, that's 7 separate lengths of EL Wire! I WANT them all to be wired up to a single toggle switch. Both the 5 and 10 foot wires have a car plug (cigarette lighter type) and then have a "music box" that allows you to select the wire to be either solid on, or to pulse with music...........
I DID splice 3 wires together by cutting between the plug and the box, but something burned out, or shorted so Im asking for all you electrical wizards to help me out.
The included pictures show the plug and music box.... I want THE SIMPLEST way to wire these all up to a car's 12V DC battery. I have a 6 fuse holder, and could possibly use this??? I included the pictures of the music box open in case maybe someone can figure out why the EL Wire wont light up without it, or why it shorts out (whats the weak link?) and maybe can I wire all 7 wires up to one box?
Once again, looking for the best possible solution.... im no wise guy and have absolutely no clue, so I hope u guys can help.....
**Im using a RS illuminated toggle switch and have a voltmeter.... how do I test the resistance/ latency of ALL the wires hooked up to know the switch can handle them without actually messing anything up? Anyway.... thanks for your help..... im the mean time I will be installing a new polished chrome billet grille in my car when it arrives!
