There is a four or five wire connector for the factory phone adjacent to the passenger's footwell. Pull of the kick panel and you will see it, it contains a switched hot wire and a ground..........

You can also pull switched 12v and ground if needed from the fuse panel (drivers left side).

If I recall there are special connectors/adapters that work w/ the modular fuses so you don't have splice or cut into any existing wiring.

An ordinary spade plug works just fine.

I never found a ground in the fuse box, but there are plenty of screws on grounded metal in the vicinity which you can use to stick a connector or wire under.

There are fuse taps and also pigtail fuses. I like to use the pigtail fuses as they fit the best into the fuse slot in the panel (since they're made from fuses). A spade terminal can work in a pinch, too - just make sure your accessory has an inline fuse on the power line.
