    Hey guys. Hooking my boost gauge and it turns off when the headlights are on. Which wire under the steering wheel can I tap into to get 12v at all times EXCEPT when the truck is off? Any help is greatly appreciated

    What do you mean by "...except when the truck is off"?

    - The key is in the IGN position but the engine is not running? or
    - The key is in the ACC position? or
    - The key has not been inserted?
