I'm wiring in a remote lock system from JC whitney, and I need a constant hot lead that is easy to find and tap into. Any ideas? Even the cig. lighter seems to be switched.

Diablo,
Go to your fuse panel under the dash. Turn off the car, and take key out of switch. Get a test light (if you don't have one about $2 at any auto store), hook clip up to a good ground (exposed metal nut or bolt) and touch ends of fuses until tester lights. Then you can run a fuse tap off of the fuse (also at store) which leaves a male connection sticking out of fuse end allowing you to hook a female terminal to. I know your courtesy (interior) light fuse is hot at all times, and I use the radio fuse to tap off of for accessory power source.
Have fun,
Steve

PS- I hooked one up in my car, you may find it creates some problems with your factory security system after install.

Thanks for the advice Steve. i got the fuse tap from Radio shack (never even knew these things existed). I see what you mean about the alarm problem. The keyless entry works fine, and the alarm works fine, the onyl thing is when you unlock with the remote, it doesn't de-activate the alarm, so you have to put the key in the door anyway! Any ideas? There is a button on the remote for a rear hatch unlock. Could this be wired into the alarm switch at the keyhole? What is the wiring like at the doorswitch?
