Default Wire thats hot only when engine is running

I have went through the truck with a test light and every wire I have come across is hot in both acc and run. I need a wire that is only hot while engine is running / not acc. Vehicle is a 2000 chevy k2500. Anybody happen to know of one?

Well your remote turn on from you head unit, accessory cables that can be found on Car Alarm, Car Stereo, Mobile Video, and Cruise Control Info for Installers or
Vehicle wiring diagrams. Unless I'm reading this wrong you're trying to hook something up to turn on when you start your car?

From what I read he just wants it on when the car is running, not when it's in acc mode. That means the head unit wire won't work.

You should check this:

1999 Chevrolet C/K Pickup Alarm, Remote Starter, Keyless Entry Wiring Information

It's for a 99, but it might still apply. The starter wire might be what you want.

Could use a latching relay or something along those lines thats turned on when it sees voltage on the starter wire problem is the starter wire only has voltage on it in the start position. More detail on what you are trying to do would be nice.

other wise your next best bet would be using one of the ignition wires as they dont drop out when you go to start like an ACC wire does..

the starter wire youre reffering to is a momentary on,
spring loaded.

i believe that would be getting close to his ecm, the ignition wire trick, the latter

id say put a manual switch from the accy circuit, or something similar

why not just run a hot lead and put it on a switch?
example..with my new daily beater all the wiring was basically shot
so i ran a switch to power the cig lighter and the radar detector.. and another switch to turn the radiator fan off n on.. I HATE it when ppl just hack shit up lol

I would assume this is for an alt? Look under the hood. There should be a circut only on while the vehicle is running.

I think it's probably because that sub is not moving enough to allow it to cool.. Id turn the gain up a bit so it moves more for cooling reasons.. That's why it's hard on subs to be underpowered..

In the main ignition harness under the dash there should be two different accessory wires. One is hot when the ignition is in the "on" and in the "run" position (like the radio) and the other will only be hot when in the "run" position (like the heat/ac blower). HOWEVER, be very careful when looking for these in the ignition harness. Test lights make airbags pop!
