Switched Hot Lead

Any suggestions for a good switched 12V source under the drivers side dash? I hate cutting back insulation on the wires to experiment. I have to wire up the Valentine One and a pro-install kit for the cell phone soon; I am driving 'naked' now.

Pic's would be great, but a simple wire color and general vicinity is fine too.

Thanks.

I put on my glasses and it didn't get better.. :-)

On the 05's isn't there a connector for the center gauges just under the top cover? (I'm assuming this, haven't actually looked)

This should be good if you donít have front ashtray lighter option. There is a plug behind where ash tray would be can be accessed from suede panel on passenger side of console has 3 male spades inside open connector mounted to back of strut. 1 is fused 20amp marked lighter in box. I use this for several accessories good heavy P.S.. This is off topic but pics will help and WTH is a good link ďhttp://members.cox.net/05gto/Ē

Thanks Holden. I couldn't open the URL but the description is good.

I finished the Valentine 1 wiring and put in a pro-install kit for my Motorola phone yesterday. I chased the cigarette lighter wires from the armrest back to the connector behind the shifter and spliced in there. The "brain" fit well in that space under the center console. I was not able to locate the "HI-low" 12V source to activate the phone's auto power function though. Install kit says green wire needs to go to a source that goes HIGH when starter is engaged and remains low afterwards.

Itís the dang ( ď Ē ) I need to stop that! Ah Iím glad your project went well. But I donít think you understood sounds like you taped into power outlet in console. There is actually another circuit not being used if you donít have smokers kit. There is actually a plug you can just use spades on that is behind cubby compartment behind strut for dash 20amp fuse labeled Lighter not same as power outlet. Power outlet has the accessory power on feature and the Lighter just goes on off with key. Thanks BIG Mike for fixing my link it is good for pics, even if itís off topic

I had already tapped into the armrest lighter line before I read your post! It's good to know the other one is there though since I am sure I will be adding other electronics in the car eventually. Thx.

Still curious if anyone has any experience with the HI/LO power source situation.
