Post #2 and #3 are your best bet. Find an ignition-on fuse and use a fuse tap to power your bluetooth controller. This option will not require a switch and turn the controller on and off with a car. Most people do this with dashcams and radars so you can search threads like those to find which fuses to tap. You can also take turn the car on, take a multimeter, touch the exposed leads on the fuse to find power, turn the car off, and touch it again to make sure it powers off when ignition off. There are also empty fuse slots if you have a non-kdss version that you could potentially use as well, I used a couple empty slots for my hardwiring. Buy a multimeter and make sure your accessories are fused, you'll be okay.

Ok I basically understand what youíre saying. Iíll talk to my mechanic or the 4x4 shop about this. So youíre suggesting to go the fuse route vs a light switch left of the steering wheel then, correct? Also, I donít have a KDSS. So what is the better option, use a fuse tap or use a empty fuse box.

I also contacted Morimoto to ask what is the max power draw the Bluetooth controller can pull. My guess itís probably not too much but just want to make sure.

Anyway, thanks for your post. It was helpful.

You would just use the fuse tap in an empty fuse slot in the fuse box.
