Was wondering if anybody knew the voltage and amp specs of the CPT8000 harness?

I am adding some microcontrollers and such, and need a ground and *regulated* +5v output, was hoping I could use the existing pins of the CPT8000.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

If you're talking about the 18pin or 6pin connectors under the console that the CPT kit plugs into, there's no +5 there. Just regular unregulated 12v. You're going to want to build a small power supply. I've had 3 different aftermarket carkits sucking power off this 12v with no problems. I'm thinking you could pretty safely suck 2A off of that.

Thanks Kaz,
I am talking about the the connectors under the center console. Do you know which pins are putting out 12v unregulated? Once I know this, I can build this:
