Re: Looking for the accessory wire from ignition?

I`m needing the accessory wire the is powered when you turn the key backwards. I have a kenwood dvd headunit I`m hooking up and I bought a relay off ebay the you wire into the accessory wire not the ignition or battery to fol the dvd into playing when the truck is moving.

find the wiring harness going into the steering column and use a test light or a voltmeter and test the wires. i believe it is yellow.

Re: Looking for the accessory wire from ignition?

For the accessory position, you've got three choices at the ignition switch:

Grey/yellow stripe,
Red/Black stripe,
Blue/Lt. Green stripe.

Any one of those will work for you. I'm going off your sig that you've got a 2002, right? The wire location and colors change from time to time, let me know if you have a different model year.
