Screen has 3 connections, one at either end and a common terminal in the
centre, all at the bottom, easily accessible when the upper trim of the dash
is removed. Connect them as either a power feed to each end and earth the
centre, or earth the 2 ends and power to the centre, either way works fine.
Must be a relay in the circuit, it draws a fair current, I used an
illuminated switch from a breakers yard and a separate heavy-duty power feed
from an auxilliary fusee box that I have fitted, and a 40A relay. Works
