Default 12v Wire

I am installing a Sirius Satellite Radio Professional Install Kit in my 2000 Ranger. It says I need to connect it to a 12v wire that switches on and off with the key, that is, goes hot and cold when the key turns on and off, respectively. Anybody know where a 12v wire is? Thanks.

The power wire for the radio is how I connected mine if it is stock radio believe it is the yellow black wire if after market just find the red wire
Just use some tap connectors



Buy your self a replacement 12v deal or cig lighter and have the adapter behind the dash hidden

Highly recommend this mount just attaches to the 2 bolts that hold the AC/Heat control plate on

They are vehicle specific so anyone that works with the explorer will also work with the ranger

If you like it just click add to cart

That looks good, but I'll have to save up for that one. How is your Sat Radio attached to your head unit?
