Default Hardwire to fuse box

Can anyone tell me what fuse would be a good choice to hardwire a sportster replay in a 2003 Dodge Ram. Is the power light suppose to always stay on even when everything else is off or will this drain my battery. Thank you in advance

Any fuse that is switched on when the key is turned or in accessory. I have used 5 amp fuses to do this.

I will be installing the FM relay (Durango 2006) soon and I was wondering if I could hardwire the power by splicing it into the lighter plug behind the bezel? What is a good way to permantly wire the power?

thanks Mich -too bad for the Wolverines - but if they drop out of second place it is a sham to get the big 10 out of the championship game...

DON'T TRY THIS IF YOUR CAR BATTERY IS MARGINAL but hard wiring a replay unit so it always gets power will allow you to go back when you first go into your car. It will also keep your buffer when you turn your car on or off.


Turn off (or remove) your unit if you won't be using your car for a while, particularly overnight in the winter.

I just did this exact thing over the weekend. Go to radioshack and buy an auxilary power outlet. It has a pos and neg connection, an in-line 10amp fuse and mounting hardware. I used an un-used circuit that comes on when the key is turned. Where is your closest fuse box located?
