This simply so I can use it while the arm-rest is down.
Now to your solution:
Can I simply tap a wire on 1 of the "switched" fuses and do it that way?
What fuse would you recommend?
Doing some research, I found out that in the fusebox, the lighter is connected to fuse #20: 5A / Integrated control panel, remote entry, cigar lighter.
Now I was thinking, could I connect it to fuse #8: 5A / Power antenna, radio control unit, GEM ?? (hoping that that is a "switched" fuse)'
Thanks for your help so far and your fast(!) reply
