Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.
The fuse box in the engine bay has a few open fuses, you can use fuse #19. This fuse is allocated for accessories that can be added. You can just plug the red wire into the fuse socket the one side will have power and the other side will not have power. So all you will have to do is astablish which side has power.
For safety sake insure you have a inline fuse in the red wire.
This information should get you going but if you need more please do not hesitate to ask.
No if there is a fuse then you do not have to put another fuse in.
Hi yes you have the correct spot. On the red wire you will have to install a inline fuse and a male spade terminal that then will plug into the fuse holder on fuse #19.
Cut the red wire and join the one side to the red wire and install a terminal on the other wire.
I made you a hand sketch of what I mean. Hope you can understand it.
Ok will be waiting the results
They are using that outlet for the radio amp, I was not awear that it switch on when the car is locked. The only thing I can say try one of the other outlets that only have power on when the ignition is on.
Use the open slots do not pull out the fuses.
Just use the male spade terminal and push it into the open fuse holders on of them must have ignition only power.
This is a picture of the fuse box diagram.
If you will bear with me fuse #29 inside the car should be open and will only have power when the ignition is on, you can plug your fuse holder into that one.
You will have to find a rubber grommet on the firewall where you can push the wire through.
Hard for me to try and tell you from where I sit now, there must be a spot where you can tread the wire though.
Okay will be waiting your reply.
The openings are there you might have to do some dismanteling of the fusebox.
On fuse #27 I am not sure if there is ignition but its worth a try. Connect the red wire there with the ignition on and see if you have power there..
Can you send me a photo of your installation instructions.
Yes I checked some installation instructions on the net you can do that. All you will have to do is to find the wire that has the power supply for the running lights. You can disconnect the plug at the light and take a multi meter and see which wire do have power or if you do not have a multi meter use the red wire to test. When the lights come on connect it to that wire and you should be set.
Connect the red wire to the white yellow wire and that should do it.
Okay it should work just fine. Thank you for letting me know.
