I have this, from "somewhere..."

-----------Switched Accessory Power---------------------------------

The wire is under the dash, switched ignition. It is in the "customer access bundle" to the right of the steering column, fed by a 10A fuse in the under dash fuse box. If I recall, the wire is blue with a pink tracer

Located in underdash fuse panel

looking at getting some analog gauges too, did you use an add-a-circuit or how did you wire them up?

5 of them are (+) tapped by a purple wire, the other 5 are tapped to cigarrette (+). Since it doesnt take much to "run" the gauges, the first 5 (+) were grouped together, so then it had one lead. Same as the other set of 5 gauges.

What i found cool and easy to wire up then, was using trailer wiring. Got your grd, (+), assy (+), all flat taped up together...

You can though, "fuse-tap" or find another "open" circuit off the panel.
