Seat Power Source

Hoping someone may be able to point me to which wire under seat is safest power point for my cb. I have it powered from upfitter switch now but have quite a bit of alternator noise, and would like to access from power seats to prevent having to leave key turned on. Radio is mounted on side of console.
I am concerned with air bags involved that a simple mistake could turn costly.
We enjoy all these fancies, but they do make things more interesting.
Thanks in Advance

Sorry for the late answer, I just found this.

My idea is to use one of the "thru firewall" wires and go straight to the fuse box or, even better, the battery. Ford has provided a small bundle of wires that dead-end on each side of the firewall just for things like this. You don't want to cut into the factory harness anyway and risk warranty issues down the road.

You can find the under hood end of the bundle just behind the fuse box and below the master cylinder area, The "inside" end of the wires are tied up above the brake pedal. Use an ohm meter to make sure you have found each end of the same wire and go!!!
