I'm installing a cruise control and I need to take 12V from both an ignition switched and (non switched) permanently live feed.

It's an early L400 diesel auto, any suggestions for somewhere that's easy to access for this, either behind the dash or in the engine bay, I'd like to make the wiring as neat as possible please!

Thanks

Andy

The route I would use is inside the steering cowling.

Both a permanent + feed and Ignition ON are there.
Of course it would require splicing and soldering onto the original wiring.

Off the ignition switch? Which circuits?

Hoping I don't have to check each wire under there, to find the right ones!

A) Err, the ignition switch circuit, it should have its own plug.

B) Normally 4 wires - Positive feed Position 1 = off, position 2 = Acc, position 3 = Ig, position 4 = Start.

It's the cold weather I'm struggling with, can't work up the enthusiasm!

I'm going to wrap and try to remove the drivers seat, reckon I've got about 30 mins before my fingers stop working! But at least then, when the wind drops I'll be able to get into the under dash easily.

Are you fitting a cruise control or something else?

I'm trying to take pictures as I go and if the controller works, I'll try to do a post about the install.

From my own experiences I would bring in a separate live feed direct from the battery to a small accessory fusebox. Then, when you need an ignition controlled power supply you can take the main  power supply from the new fusebox and take the ignition fed supply from the existing fuseboard with a fuse tap, because the relay draw is so small so as not to overload the existing wiring/circuits. It works for me.
