About to go outside and install my XM commander, and I know that fuse 41 can be used as an Add-a-circuit... where would I tie in the yellow acc wire?
TIA, and if you all can find it by searching, let me know what terms you used.

Re: Wiring Question... a quick one. (4string)

DAMN 4string- yes that is a big help!! That needs to go in the FAQ!
I ended up going a different route though as I did not have the correct size "add-a-circuit". Just for the record:
I used the red/black wire (+) and the brown (-) wire underneath the "lighter/socket" thingy. I ran the other wire right to the battery. Here are my results:


P.S.- VeeRSixx... you're funny. "Just" a MKIV. I read your first response I was shocked at how helpful the post was (before realizing it was you...) and thought the MKV forums have come to their senses.

In the MKV, they didn't put the handy dandy diagram, it's just a list like 4string put on here.... but thanks everyone for their help! (I owe you a radar detector, huh?)

That is one huge list and definitely needs to be added to the FAQ. In particular, fuse # 27 (fuel pump) is good to know. I thought the best thing to do was to wire up to the lighter socket, but i'm not sure if that is switched 'accessory' power in the MKV or not.


"Thread" had it added. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I think everyone should just tap into the accessory wire under the ashtray. Easy access and shorter wire run (if you are installing a head unit). That is where I tapped into for my amp turn-on wire.

That's where I ended up tapping... MUCH less complicated... at least in my mind.
