+12V ignition switched source in rear center console?

Recommended Posts

Where is a +12V source (that has power only when the ignition switch is on) in the rear center console? Thanks!

It seems to me that easiest source for the center console would be using the phone prep connector and extend the wires down the console (under the carpet). There is both +12 volts switched and unswitched on the phone prep connector.

In the engine compartment?

Well, you've got the alternator right there so there is lots of power close - but I would suggest a fuse for whatever you plan on connecting.

What are thinking about adding in the engine compartment?

Thanks Loren. I'll try the phone prep connector. I have an exhaust that has muffler bypass valves that are controlled by vacuum actuators, activated by a solenoid mounted in the engine bay. Originally I sourced power from a constant source in the engine bay and placed the switch in the glovebox which closes the circuit. I have decided that I do not want to add any more battery drain to the system than there already is. I am using a battery tender when it sits for several days, but I still think that these cars (some of them anyway) have horrible shelf life battery wise! Good thing mine is a daily driver.
