View Full Version : Looking for wires to tap?

09-29-2009, 08:13 AM
I am hardwiring a bunch of my gadgets such as my v1, garmin, laser interceptor, cb, and scanner. I don't want to use fuse taps and would rather just tap wires but I am not sure if I have enough that will shut off when the car is off. I want to use the wires coming from the back of the fuse box, do I use the ones going into the fuse, or going from?

Also what fuses will power off when the car is off?
And last question, is there a wire to tap into in the glovebox for the scanner?

Thanks guys I tried searching btw and came up pretty empty handed besides using fuse taps with the homeljnk.. But isn't that fuse to small for a fuse tap?

Either the ignition harness or lugs on the fusebox.

Is the ignition harness behind the fuse box? I can just put wire taps onto these and just inline fuses to the devices being hardwired... Right?
