H&S power source?

I can't believe I am stupid enough to have to ask this. Maybe I am just frustrated, but probably more stupid.

What color wire for ignition power source for mini Maxx? It's not solid purple. I already cut the power wire for the tuner short enough that it prob wont go through the firewall, and I can't even figure out how to do that anyway.

Man I feel dumb.

You are looking for the fuse box under the hood. It is number 58. Use a utility knife to cut a small hole in the rubber grommit under the dash. and pull it through.

Personally i would be splicing under the dash if i didn't have to. Some of the splicing connectors can vibrate loose or even cut too deep severing the origional wire.

You can always use a connector to stretch your power wire back out to fill length

I was trying to find something in that bale of loose wires behind the OBDII ports, but I might be out of luck.

So regarding the fuse box, H&M is saying fuse 52 in the manual. Is 58 a better option?

Also as far as the power wire, I'm assuming you didn't do anything with the ground wire?

I am sorry, you are correct. Fuse 52. If you look in the owners manual it should be something like ECM. Make sure you use the passenger side of the fuse.

I dont recall needing a ground wire.

Ok. I guess I was just unsure about cutting the firewall grommet. I will try this out. Thank you for your help!
