Sorry. Then I think you should run the triggerwire to the fuse box (in the glove compartment). I seem to rember reading about some kind of accessory wire in there??

Another option is to tap it in to the fuse for the interior light. That will work

Step 1: Open the ECU box under hood.

Step 2: Grab your multimeter.

Step 3: Have a friend turn the ignition on and off until you find a wire with switched 12V.

Step 4: Run the wire there and tap for power.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”
