    I am trying to wire up the seat heaters that came with my WOs and want to splice them to the cigarette lighter wiring. I have removed the center console and the A/C controls. But am stopped by the large panel that has the actual cigarette lighter plugs in them.

    Does this just pull out, or are there screws holding it in, that are located under other pieces I have yet to remove?

    Ok, you have to remove the lower dash under the steering wheel, as well as pull out the black part around the gauge besel. There is a screw behind the pocket to the bottom right of the steering wheel...I think there are also screws behind the cup holders (they just pull upwards and come out). Then the lower portion just pulls out...i searced on here to do exactly what you are doing. I did it about 3 weeks ago! Good luck.

    OK, that's probably the best way, but I just bought an add-a-circuit fuse off of the same circuit for my GPS and cellphone switched power.
