ARB CKMTA12 Twin Compressor Wiring Thread

Hi guys,

Tried searching, and there is some great reads out there regarding this compressor installed in our 5ths.

I guess my stumbling block is I'm not using it for lockers, and from what I can read the harness is somewhat complicated. My goal is to switch UNDER the hood, and not from inside the cab.

I'm thinking I have to raise the hood anyway to hook up the air hose, so why not turn it on while you're right there. I was thinking about using one of those resetting breakers as an on/off switch...too downtown?

Post up your diagrams, as simple as possible, with everything under the hood.

P.S.....I already own the world famous @bandi bracket....world renowned fabricator and all around good guy. I'm hoping to consolidate this wiring info in one spot, thanks in advance for any contributions.

Hey Pat,

I installed mine with a Bandi mount too and used Blue Sea circuit breakers to protect it. It's switched by a SwitchPro but you could easily just wire up a simple switch. I hacked the harness and made it activate with +12V. Don't have a diagram but it was simple to do based on the provided schematics.

Not sure if these pics help but here's my install.

I took one look at that wiring harness and said, "Oh Hell No!"
I bought a 40amp switch from amazon and mounted it right next to the compressor.

Big fan of K.I.S.S., so I went totally bare bones.
You can see the switch mounted just under the black and red compressor wire pigtail.

@nglayton - this is exactly what I was hoping to do. Any idea what switch you used? I can't find anything that looks somewhat water resistant and that is 40 amps. Second question - did you just put the fuse in line to the wire that went to the battery?

Here's the switch I used from Amazon. Still working great.

Yes, I just put the fuse inline (pos+) between the battery and the switch.
