12V Source When Key is off

Does anybody know what wire I can use and where it is. Heres what I want to do. I have a Sirius sportster that I have hard wired now to a key on source. But if you turn the truck off, power goes off. I want to tap into the source that continues for like 20 min. after the key is off. You know the one that allows the radio to play after removing the key. Any help is appreciated.

You could go into your fuse panel with a light tester and see which one stayed on for a bit after you kill the switch.

Yeah sorry, I am not sure on the 6.0s But, maybe someone will be along shortly to tell ya.

On the other hand, I would not think it would take that long to check with a tester. Just pull the panel and turn the truck on, and then shut it off and go down the row testing on top. You should be able to find a good one pretty fast.
