Wink Switched Hot FYI.

I know many of us have spent a lot of time trying to hunt down a switched hot to run accessories. After doing some serious forum searching, I found one that fulfilled my needs. As far as I know, this pertains to those of us with '03-'07s. There is a white wire with a blue tracer that sticks out and is taped off of the wiring harness that feeds the OBD2 Connecter. Its fuse #29 rated for 10A. Its labeled in the owners manual as "customer access". Not to be confused with the other group of wires labeled "customer access bundle" stubbing through the firewall into the engine bay. So, tonight I hardwired a dual port 12v outlet into it, to power my GPS and radar detector. I zip tied the 12v outlet up under the dash for a concealed clean look. Besides, I was tired of having the cords running down to the outlets on the dash, and having to turn them on and off every time i went somewhere. Hope this helps.
