: Power tap

01-29-06, 07:46 PM
After reading thru the V schematics (daunting task) I found a spot to tap into for a gage light or gage power. It seems most of the interior of the V is low power or serial communication to the fuse box and everything gets routed from there.

Anyway, connector C200 feeds the instrument display with a 10 fuse. This connector is located on the drivers side behind the access panel on the side of the dash. I would guess we can get away with a 2-3 amp load. Gages are now lit and functioning. Brown or orange Ignition power. Yellow inst panel power, black is ground.

Good luck.

Beneath the rear seat there are two fuse blocks.

Each one of those blocks has an 10 or 12 guage (unfused) wire directly to the main junction in the front of the car.
