adding 12 volt sockets to the shifter bezel

Postby themadness » Thu Aug 16, 2012 11:55 am

heres an example...minus the building a whole new console part. this guy(a member here?) put a multiple socket box with a usb port in his console. i was thinking about doing this the other day then ran across this so i might actually try it. how would it be wired to keep it having a clean look? just splice the wires to the factory lighter and connect the wires from the box?

yes you could just splice them into the main lighter wiring. it still has a fuse protecting the whole of the circuit. most people would just attach a bought "3 port" spliter to the passenger side of the console. i really don't like the placement of the stock one, especially if i have my inverter thingy plugged in... it's an inch away from the shifter... (just it's size really...)
