I put a RS alarm on my fathers 90 F-150 and instead of running the power wire to the battery I just used the constant power on the ignition harness. Its working fine as of now. Will I have any problems by doing this?

And where can I buy SPDT relays online, like in a 10 pack or something? I want good ones.

As long as you soldered the connections, you should be fine

I buy my Bosch relays 10 at a time off ebay- never had a problem with them.........

I didnt see a reason for it to be a problem, saves me from having to run any wires through the fire wall.

I cant buy on ebay anymore man, my account was cancled after using the word "damn" in a email to a seller.

well, you could try an install shop. See if they will sell you some relays. Prolly gonna cost you at least a buck a piece. Do any of your friends have an ebay account? Might also want to try Radio Shack. If it was me, I would go with stopping into a 12V install shop. A privately owned one, not something like Best Buy.

You can buy relays at any auto parts store. But I think they charge like $5 each.

local auto parts will have it, spdt or spst will work for your application.
for large quantity, check eeebay, mouser.com, partsexpress.com. for easy wiring, get the harness that plug into the relay
