    Hey guys,

    I just purchased 5 radios that need wiring into my trucks. They are all fords. I was going to plug the radios into a cigarette lighter but when I saw the 20 amp fuse I quickly realized it was not a good idea.

    So, I need to wire it directly to the battery with a relay that will turn it on when the truck is on. However, I can't seem to decide which wire to use as a remote under the dash. Does anyone have pics or something for me to rely on?

  2. Simplest way is use a fuse that is already controlled by the ignition
