What can I assist you with today?

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 year ago.

I do not know where you are going to get 9 volts. Most wires are either 5 or 12 volts

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 year ago.
Given the complexity of today's vehicles I would discourage tapping into any wire. I would run a wire either from fuse box or battery.
