What does R.A.P. mean? And this is only powered on with the ignition, correct?

Where does the hazard switch wire connect?

I bought my RX-8 and noticed the hazard switch didn't work. I went to install an aftermarket stereo and noticed the hazard switch wasn't even plugged in to anything. I looked around and could not find the other end that should attach the hazard light switch...HELP ME PLEASE!

I found out that the hazard button plugs into the stereo receiver motherboard. I have a dash kit that will route the button properly. Thanks for the wire diagram anyway

Found it pg. 86/88. Guess I should've looked harder. After some testing I've now verified that the picture of the Bose headunit harness with wire colors on the sticky is correct for my car. Thanks

I suppose for verification I could set my multimeter to AC and probe on the expected audio channel pins of the harness while playing left channel right channel stuff to see what is "left channel/right channel" and what is +/-. Though if the colors match up perfectky when I go to splice in then I'll be confident enough to just do it.

UK unknown wires connect to the cigar lighter

Hello All,
Whilst trying in vane to swap out my SAS module behind the Radio, I discovered some wires without connectors.

I have remove the ashtray, centre console etc. and disconnected cigar lighter, bulb etc.
There are 2 wires, sheathed, which went back into the dash, connected to the cigar lighter connector.
The 12v has an inline fuse, (same style fuses as main fuse box)

seems to be supply to something

Hadn't noticed it until I pulled the cable to one side and the wire came out.
They have bare ends, like I may have snagged them at some point against a sharp edge and cut them.
not that I remember being the rough.

Although I did get frustrated about not being able to get to the SAS module connectors.

Can anyone tell me where they go ?

Help !!! :-(

Shaun
