5 Volts? for XM radio
« on: 03/17/11 05:19 AM »

 :help:Is there a 5 volt wire anywhere in the 02 AVs? I prefer it to be near the overhead console, But if I need to I am not opposed to running a wire and a inline fuse.

How do you plan on breaking down a 12v lead to 5v? Resistors?

Honestly, I have no clue. The plan for right now it to mount a XM Radio into my over head console. The supplied power plug is a 5-Volt power plug that plugs in to the accessory ports. I don't want to have the plug hanging down to the dash. I have already run the antenna wire to the console, and was hoping to just chop the plug off if there was a 5-volt line somewhere to tie into. Right now i am thinking of splicing in an extension in the middle of the wire and hide a 12-volt socket under the dash so all the wires will be hidden. Hope my ranting isn't confusing....

There's a DC/DC converter you can wire in.

do  it the easy way, just run a lighter plug up there and plug it in, the end of the xm plug already has the resistors or choke to cut it down to 5v from 12.  You can stash all the wires and the plug either behind the xm or under the housing!
