Switched electrical power

I am trying to wire up my 08 center console i am putting in my 03 f350. I want the outlets to be on switched power and not on all the time. Anyone know where i can find a wire to tap?

There should be some wires taped up by your master cylinder that say "Customer Access". You might need to add a fuse to get them to work. Or, you can bring the truck by my place and we can start poking around with my multi-meter. Seen it out a few times now... looks good with the graphics.

Are these the wires you are talking about? I couldnt find anything that says customer access. Although i did find a fuse a while back for customer access. It already has the fuse in it.

I do have some zip tied to the master cylinder but they plug into it.

Those would be the 4 wires. Might want to double check you have the fuse in or that it isn't blown.

I checked the fuse. It says its a 10amp and it is in there and not blown.

I started up the truck and used a wire with a light on it to try and figure out which one. None of them light it up.

Weird. Do you want it to always have power or just when the key is on?

When the key is on. I want to leave things plugged in without training the battery.
