Garage
Under center console there is a plug with switched power. It is there for a factory cell phone i think. You may be able to find the wires and plug on the passenger side foot
well in front of the shifter. I used it for my radar detector.

Look for a source of switched power that is unused in the fuse box (often there are a couple of fuses unused because of options, like seated seats or similar), then tap in and run a wire. Remember to write down which fuse now powers the gauge sensors.
