    Grab a multi-meter and start probing the fuse box.

    If it matters... I have heated seats that I used an 'add-a-line' to the fuse box empty slot. Just make sure - whatever you do - you're using the proper circuit/amps/fuse, etc. I am not necessarily telling you to use this exact spot. It's just what I used. Again - get a multimeter and use it!

    Here's a picture off my 2007 interior fuse box.

    If you move the wire from the battery and tap it into the cig lighter, you will then have it on switched power, which will only be powered when the key in turned on. Fairly certain this is what menametony was telling you. If you want to wire it to the fuse box, find the fuse for the cig lighter.

    Best of luck.

    wire it to the cigarete lighter circuit, it will turn on and off with the key. unless you have done the always on mod.if you hard wire it you will still be able to use the outlet for your phone charger, ipod etc
