Under the central dash, beneath the radio.

Here you go:



(updated my post in linked thread too - not sure why flickr images no longer show as they are still in my feed over there)


Good luck

Thanks for that
So, correct me if I'm wrong
RED-Green is 12V Always
Green is 12V Switched
Yellow&Blk is Phone Mute (whatever that means)
Brown is Negative/Ground

I'm just planning to use The Green 12V Switched with a hard wire kit for a dashCam and that's it basically.. so the cam switches on with the ignition.
And the ground wire of the kit to the Brown
Will that work guys?
Thank You

PS. Not all the pics came up in your original post with Flickr only the last one

Well, after an exhaustive search and removal of panels, carpeting etc. I can sadly report my car doesn't have the phone connection . RoW penalty I guess.

So I am now thinking splicing into the back of the cigarette socket with T connectors.
There are 3 wires running into the back of the socket.
Brown (I assume is ground)
Red (I assume is 12V live)
Light Blue thinner wire ( I assume is for the light ring around the front of the lighter when driving lights are on?)

Anyway any other suggestions?
Bear in mind I don't want to run a line down to the fuse box.
Thanks
