There's a customer access wire taped up to the wires leading to the OBDII port that is a switched power source. Don't remember the fuse rating on it, but you should be able to find the fuse location in your owners manual.

It's hard to find, but grab a flash light and start looking. It's got a heat shrink type stuff covering the end of the wire.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....


Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought
