Quoted from MustangPaul:
I see the printing on the bottom now, I had to stand on my head inside the cab to see mine.......good thing I can read upside down. LOL That solved one problem but it still leaves me with the other which is "my shaker plug is taken up by the power distribution board so who makes a splitter with the connections to plug the shaker motor into that plug"?????
I think I see an issue here....and keep in mind I'm just spit ballin'.
I *think* the original plug connection that was plugged in the Cabinet Node 1 CN14 is supposed to go to the Aux Power Boards INPUT. The PASS THRU should then come out of the Aux Power Board and go into the CN14 connection on the Cabinet Node 1 board.
That is always the way I understood it to work...take an original plug that was going into the cabinet node, run it through the aux power boards and them pass it thru to the cabinet node board.
Looking at things...it appears the Aux Power board has +48v printed on one side and GND on the other of the INPUT connection. It is the same size 5 pin connection as the shaker motor connection and also pinned the same (except the shaker motor would already be +12v instead of the +48v the Aux Power board is expecting). My guess is the power board is just taking the +12v you are feeding it instead of the +48v it is expecting to "jump down" and using it.
You can also see the factory wire colors for the CN14 wires match what is going to the INPUT on the PBL picture(Black on one and Grey-Yellow on the other). On this picture you can also see the PASS THRU connection coming out of the Aux Power board is the same as what is going into the CN14 connection on the Cabinet Node 1 boards.
My guess is the instructions are wrong (or have changed) on the Aux Power board. If the connections are keyed (which many times they are not) or haven't changed (which many times they do, this mistake shouldn't be able to happen.....but my guess that is what is happened and you are feeding the Aux Power Board the +12v from the shaker motor connection instead of the +48v it is expecting from the CN14 connection.
UPDATE: After going back and looking at the picture that you posted...I think you have everything connected correctly EXCEPT the harness that is coming OUT of the PASS THRU connection on the Aux Power Board should be going into CN14 instead of CN16....but don't take my word for it. Ask PBL or give the instructions for the Aux Power Board another look.
