    Check the tutorial section. Search for Bel 980.

    wouldn't you have to have the wiring fused somehow aswell. Kinda shakey on hardwiring to the ignition wiring so are there other 12v wires to tap off of in the same area (fuse panel).??

    I pulled my radio and was able to reach the cig lighter/accessory power wires. They are only hot when the radio is, so I wired it to those. Yes, you will want to fuse the positive side.
