Wiring the IDIDIT idTOUCH

This blog post is going to show you how to wire the IDIDIT id.TOUCH PKE system to the Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit.  The Infinitybox system is the electrical backbone for your restoration, resto-mod, street rod, kit car, or Pro-Touring build.  Our system is flexible enough to connect and power any external electrical accessory that you want to add.  In the case of wiring the IDIDIT id.TOUCH, your 20-Circuit Kit is already powering your ignition, starter solenoid and accessories.  You are going to use the id.TOUCH as the switches that connect to the MASTERCELL to control these functions.  Keep reading to learn more.

Before we go to far, please carefully read and understand all of the instructions that came with your IDIDIT id.TOUCH system.  You can access the manual from the IDIDIT website by clicking this link.  This blog post is only going to cover the wiring and connections related to the Infinitybox system.  Please follow their instructions for the complete wiring.

Wiring the IDIDIT id.TOUCH to the Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit is pretty easy.  To the MASTERCELL, the id.TOUCH is just going to look like any ignition & starter switch.  This wiring diagram shows the details.

The connections that you are concerned about are the id.TOUCH outputs for the ignition, starter solenoid and the accessories.  You also need to wire the id.TOUCH input for the brake pedal signal.

For the id.TOUCH outputs for the ignition, starter solenoid and accessories, these are positive 12-volt signals.  Our MASTERCELL needs ground triggers.  Do not wire the outputs from the id.TOUCH directly to the MASTERCELL inputs.  This can potentially damage the MASTERCELL and will void your warranty.  You need to either use a small relay to invert these signals or use our inVERT  Minis.  The wiring diagram shows the correct wiring of the inVERT Mini.

Check the configuration sheet that came with your Infinitybox 20-Circuit for the correct wire colors for the inputs and outputs mentioned in this blog post.  You can learn more about the configuration sheet at this link.

The diagram from IDIDIT shows a neutral safety switch on the purple wire going to the starter solenoid.  You do not need to wire this with the Infinitybox system.  There is a separate neutral safety input that goes to the MASTERCELL.  See this link for more details.

The id.TOUCH has an accessory output wire on it.  That can be wired to the MASTERCELL to control any of the OPEN outputs on the system.  This can be used to control an output separate from the ignition to power your stereo or anything else that you want separate from the ignition.

You also need to connect the POWERCELL brake light output to the brake pedal input on the id.TOUCH.  The id.TOUCH needs a positive 12-volt signal to know that you foot is on the brake pedal.

Once you have the ignition, starter solenoid and accessories controlled by your IDIDIT id.TOUCH, you can add more optional features.  The id.TOUCH has a set of relays built in that can be used to control optional functions in the car.  For example, you could add a trunk popper.  Or you could control your door locks if you have our inMOTION cell as part of your Infinitybox system.  See the id.TOUCH manual for more details about setting this up.  This diagram shows how to wire the optional functions on the id.TOUCH to your MASTERCELL inputs.

The optional control relays on the id.TOUCH are not connected to power or ground, which makes wiring them very easy.  You simply need to ground the Green, Blue and Black/Wires in the optional harness.  The MASTERCELL inputs for lock and unlock on inMOTION would connect to the Green/Black and Blue/Black wires, respectively.  Any additional MASTERCELL inputs for accessories would connect to the Yellow and Orange wires.

The combination of the Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit and the IDIDIT id.TOUCH gives you modern functionality in your restoration, restomod, street rod, kit car or Pro-Touring build.  You can download a PDF of these wiring diagrams by clicking this link.

Our Infinitybox system plays nicely with any other electrical accessory that you would want to install in your hot rod, restoration, resto-mod, street rod, kit car or pro-touring build.  This blog post is going to cover the Digital Guard Dawg PBS II wiring.  It will show you how to connect the PBS II push-button start PKE module to your Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit.  This gets you the passive keyless entry features of the Digital Guard Dawg PBS II paired with the power and flexibility of the Infinitybox system.  We have blogged before about wiring their iKey system into our Infinitybox system.  You can see that post by clicking this link.

Before you go anywhere, it is very important that you thoroughly read and understand the manual for the Digital Guard Dawg PBS II.  You can access that by clicking this link.  Once you are familiar with their instructions, it is time to get into the Digital Guard Dawg PBS II wiring and the Infinitybox system.  This blog post is only going to cover the connections between the PBS II and the Infinitybox system.  Follow their instructions for all constant power and ground connects.  Also follow their instructions for wiring their push to start button and their training button.

The PBS II will give you passive keyless entry (PKE) capability for your car.  As you approach the car, the PBS II system detects the presence of the key fob in your pocket.  It engages the ignition and lets you start the car.  The PBS II connects to the MASTERCELL of your 20-Circuit Kit and replaces the need for a traditional ignition/start switch.  This diagram shows the necessary connections that you need to make.

The PBS II will send the signals to the MASTERCELL for the ignition and the starter.  When the MASTERCELL sees these inputs turn on, it will send the required signals to the POWERCELLs to power your ignition and starter outputs.  The PBS II wires for the ignition and starter are positive signals.  The MASTERCELL requires ground triggers for the inputs so you will need to wire in our inVERT Minis to buffer their positive signal.  You can learn more about the inVERT Mini and purchase them at this link.  The diagram above shows where to put the inVERT Minis in the circuit.

The PBS II also needs a signal to know that you are stepping on the brake pedal.  This signal must be positive 12-volts.  Since our MASTERCELL inputs work by being triggered to ground, you cannot get this positive brake signal from the brake pedal switch directly.  You need to get this from the POWERCELL output for the brake lights.  You can simply splice into the brake light output on the rear POWERCELL.  Alternately, you can use an OPEN output on the front POWERCELL as the brake pedal trigger.  You would wire the corresponding input to your OPEN output to the brake pedal switch, in parallel with your usual brake light input.  Doing it this way keeps the run of wires in the car short.

The PBS II also has provisions to control door locks and trunk poppers.  If you purchased inMOTION for your Infinitybox system, you can wire the MASTERCELL inputs for your door locks to the Unlock and Lock signals on the PBS II Accessory Harness.  We recommend using a diode to isolate the MASTERCELL from any stray voltages that may exist in the PBS II.  This diode should be a 1N4001 and must be oriented per the diagram above.  These inputs will not work if the diodes are installed incorrectly.

The PBS II also has provisions to control a trunk popper from their key fob.  You can take any of the OPEN outputs on your rear POWERCELL to control you trunk popper.  You would wire the corresponding MASTERCELL input to the white Trunk wire in their accessory harness.  Just like the signals for the door locks, we recommend isolating the MASTERCELL inputs from the PBS II with a 1N4001 diode as shown in the wiring diagram.
