looking for a fuse to tap

looking for a fuse to tap

Postby Judge.1337 [OP] » May 13 2013, 7:45pm

Im currently installing the jet accu-speed speedometer calibrator and I need a fuse that is as follows:
A fuse circuit in the fuse block that has a 12v signal any time the ignition switch is in the start or run position (only in these positions not 12 volts all time)

Anyone could guide me to a good fuse to tap on a 2001 chevy silverado it would be greatly appreciated

Add a fuse connects it directly just with an additional power line. Radio fuse would work depending on the power needs of what you are installing. That's the best question to answer before you plug into any existing fuses.
