It's super simple. Just a car battery, a switch, a 3.5A power lock actuator, and a analog camera. That's it. The switch activates the power door lock actuator.


Don't forget to remind them that the ground wire for all this is a single conductor of a cat5 cable. sad.
Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)

it's irrelevant. I've tried a much shorter 18GA wire in place of it. Of course, I still get the same result because it's unrelated to the problem. Thanks for trying to 'help' though.

Thanks for your opinion. You're not able to help and you know it. I've got some new tips from people who understand the issue that I'm going to experiment with.

Would that be an solenoid / electromagnet kind of thing, and therefore the very type of inductive load that tack warns of:

but if you've got some large reactive values in there then all sorts of strange things can happen
