    I recently removed my mid-weight poly plow from an 04 Silverado and now have it on an 08 Sierra. I'm having a difficult time finding a acc/run fuse to tap into in the fuse panel (BEC) on the side of the dashboard. They all seem hot, even when key is off. Anybody know of a fuse location I can safely tap into? Western hasn't answered my email and I'm getting sick of pulling fuses. I wish they'd publish the electrical instructions for these new GM trucks on their website.

    I used the auxiliary climate control fuse underneath the hood, it was the only non critical fuse i could find that shut the power off when the key was off.

    Western emailed me back with a pdf from ASE/GM Bulletin - Document ID: 2204033 / #08-08-45-004. There's a Mid Bussed Electrical Connection center located in front of the parking brake to access. Pin 7 of module location X14 is a 10 amp keyed/switched circuit.

    These trucks are getting more difficult to work on for every year that passes.
