    Anyone know which side is the live leg of the fuse. I can't test it as it's only live when ignition is on and I have ski in two halves!


    Anyone (bet JT knows!!)

    That is funny!

    Only real way to tell is to flip the CB box upside down and look at the source wires.

    Are you aware that the little dots left and right of the numbers on the fuze are for testing with a electrical tester meter pin?

    What specifically are you trying to diagnose?

    Ok JT, don't shout at me, I'm planning on using a piggyback connector onto the fused side of the 3A GPS circuit, to connect a "power on after wake up" for my CMD. It's a tiny trace wire, almost no current draw. I know I should rig a new circuit but I just can't lay my hands on the jumper cables or connectors (here in sunny Sweden).

    I will bring the wire in through the bottom of the fuse box and through the green rubber seal to keep everything dry.

    Am I being cheap?!?!

    Haha, sounds to me like you have a good plan! I know the dang CB box connectors are different on the 2012+ and are very hard to find.

    BTW, I think the "Left" leg is the hot leg according to my shop manual wiring diagram. I am sure the 2012 shop manual wiring diagram shows the same thing. Go for it.

    The red wires with a tracer are what you are looking for your setup. You should take some good pics and post it up for others to use.

    This should help ID wires from the battery, relay, and fuzes:
