Re: Radio Power & Power (cigarette) socket
got it done ok. according to the owners manual the cigarette lighter is a 15a fuse. the JVC unit I fitted also had a 15a fuse in the back of it. however being cautious I fitted an in line with a 12A in it, so that should blow before anything else. There are three wires to cigarette lighter - yellow is the light, black for earth and blue with red stripe which i took my supply from. works fine. also managed to run the CD autochanger cable and removed and replaced the trim without breaking anything. Not entirely sure where to locate the changer though, so have temporarily velcroed it to the boot floor. works fine, but looks a bit vulnerable there, but cant find anywhere else solid to mount it. My wife took the kids out, suprising how much you can get done on your own!
Hope this helps
