Hot wire

I am in the process of installing a temp guage on my 09 rex. The directions say to use a fuse block for all accessories. Does anyone know which wire or where you reccomend me to get my power source from? I would like a wire that is only hot when the key is turned to the on position. Do i need to use some type of a relay and if so how do i go about this.

I have done several setups. Most have been with a complete Painless fuse block so I could add several acessories but the last one I did was easy. You can find a ADD A FUSE at your local auto parts store, this will allow you to add a fuse to an existing power circuit. I will see about getting a pic of one tonight to show you where I installed it.

You can remove the drivers seat and find the fuse block. The rear fuse closest to the drivers side is only powered with the key. The ADD A FUSE takes 30 secs to install, then only thing you will have to do is add a + wire to the guage. Then you will need to trim the fuse covers so they will fit.

cig ligter socket is pretty good and easy. I believe the wire is brown coming from there but you can double check it with a meter or test light.
