    i need a source for "switched" + power ...

    i.e., 12v that is enabled with ignition being in the "on" position. and ONLY when you have the key in the "on" position.

    i have a 2004 STi, but i assume even any WRX or Impreza owner input would be helpful.


    TIA

    I just installed a boost gauge yesterday and I used the clock ignition to tap in to. There are 4 wires running to the clock and it is listed on the clock what each wire is.

    I used the fuse box for my boost gauge lighting. I've seen a few people do it this way, pull the fuse for "gauges" (maybe the number 12 fuse), put the wire in, replace the fuse to hold in the wire.

    why not one of these?



    although i do know that directly behind the driver's side fuse panel is very tight. one of these little units in certain places won't let you fully close the spare change tray. but there are other places to put it.

    the location in this image (pink oval) is what i used for my radar detector and the add-a-circuit doohicky - but it has power all the time, not switched.
