Title: Booster heater wiring
Post by: marinabrid on September 13, 2014, 02:26:15 PM
The chap who bought my old booster heater is trying to fit it in a circuit to heat a tent,  i am trying to assist him in wiring, but would anyone know the basic wiring and what the heater needs to fire up, i.e   if you put it on a bench , had water in and out   a fuel pump ready ,  what power and or other things does it need ?  its the D5W with just the single wiring plug on.
Thanks  to any specialist !

I assume you've looked at Mirez's guide here https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-reference-library/galaxy-mk2-auxiliary-booster-heater-guide/ (https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-reference-library/galaxy-mk2-auxiliary-booster-heater-guide/)

I think that's got all the info you need.  I think the "Engine Running Signal" and "Air Temperature Switch" are just +12V signals, ie both +12V to get heater to fire up.
