    Switched Live?

    Anyone know where i can pull a popper switched live from in the A4?
    I did have one place where i thought there was a switched behind the glove box however this doesn't really time up with the ignition. It times with locking and unlocking of the car.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Cheers!
    Chris

    the lighter is a good one i think or just find the ignition live mate think you can get this from the fuse box or from the ignition its self just put an inline fuse in if you do it that way though

    ok, i will have a go at the fuse box later and see.. i just have a vague feeling i had been there before with no such luck.
    Ideally i could do with it being in the boot....

    Cheers!

    i think you may have to run your own into the boot mate im not 100% sure though you maybe lucky if its in the boot you need it id say pick it up from the lighter in the center consel and run it back under the carpet

    yeh. i thought so.
    I wondered if there was one of the amp wire for the sub but i think this might be linked to the stereo on/off rather than the car.
