fuse with constant 12V

Post by mymangochutney »

I've tried the radio fuse and the spare but both turn off after a while.

Any ones ok especially considering the fusebox is really tiny so some spots you can't even add a tap

Go with 11 , it worked for me. You need a ATM type tap, as a low profile one will not fit. Also you have to make sure you know which is the positive side.

Here is a good video on finding the constant 12V and ACC fuse slots. Its good to have a circuit tester, but I found it was a tight space and the tip would not always penetrate the metal.

Actually managed to blow a fuse a while ago probing voltages. Thanks for the tip the tap seems to work when it's off but funny part is it turns off for a second during engine start.

Seems to turn off when I hit lock on the key, not a huge problem but it doesn't turn on sometimes when I start the car
