    Hi guys,
    Anyone who recently installed a Western on a 2007 and up Chevy - where did you find a wire to connect to that is only hot when the switch is on? So far all I can find are wires that are hot all the time.

    There is a small box just above the brake pedal. Remove the cover and test the spade connectors on the left side near the bottom. Thats where i tapped in.

    That is good to know, i just tapped into the panel on the side by the door, and it has constant power. The only place i think there is a switched fuse is under the hood, and GM forgot to make any access holes from the engine compartment to the inside of a work truck to run wires.:realmad:
