Amplifier ACC Power Source in Trunk
I'm trying to install a powered sub in the trunk of my e36. Since the battery is located in the trunk, it's easy enough to get an "always hot" connection.
What I'm having problems with is getting an "acc/hot" connection, or remote power that is only on when you turn the key.
Does anyone know if there is such a wire that is in the trunk somewhere? There are many wires, but most of these are hot for the lights. I'm not aware of any wire being hot only after I turn the key on.
I removed the left hand side wheel well cover and there were some harnesses but the all looked like they were for the rear lights. Nothing obvious for an optional amp.
The car did have a cd changer, but the only wires that went to the unit were the unilink cable and the rca patch cables.
I am trying to avoid running a wire all the way from the dash out to the trunk!
The car did not have an amp in it so I can't just transfer existing wires.
Any info would be appreciated.
