I want to use an add-a-circuit to hook-up a cigarette lighter adaptor but have it near the driver door so I can hide the power cable going to my GPS which I plan to mount to the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel.
I want to find a switched fuse. I looked at the book hoping it would be clear which fuses are switched but it didn't note that. I have a meter and can start to check each fuse location. However, before I go through the trouble, does anyone have an opinion of whether one fuse location is better than another or do you know which are switched and which are always live? There are some unused spots. Can I use them?
I would rather use the add-a-circuits that are blades and they plug into the fuse box in palce of the fuse. The add-a-circuit then has a fuse for that circuit and another fuse and power lead that I can use to connect the cigarette lighter. I will then need to mount the cigarette lighter adapter somewhere. I would really rather not splice into a another wire somewhere unless I get VERY strong advice that I should not use the add-a-circuit with the fuse box.
Any opinions or experiences that you can share? Wiring or fuse diagram that shows switched vs always live circuits? Etc?
Thank you in advance.
