Okay so I got me a mirror from another member on here. Instead of doing an Explorer OHC, I decided to get the rear view mirror with the temperature and compass. It's a ford part, so it lets me sleep at night. I don't feel like cutting my headliner with the OHC anyways. I got all the wires ran, but I had a little trouble. From what I saw on the "OHC- How to install" he tapped into the power and accessory from the radio. My wires are just long enough for that, but It doesn't work.

There are 5 wires:
I tapped the "constant hot 12v" from the mirror to the radio.
I did "12v accessory" from the mirror and tapped the radio.
Ground which I tapped into the radio as well.
And then two wires for the temp sensor outside the truck.

Except this blew my fuse for the radio. Anyone know where I can get my 12v constant and accessory by itself with a fuse? I'll start a thread with this too.
