    Help! Where Is My Fusebox At?

    Im about to install my electronic cutout system and am wonder where the fuse box is located on my 2000 SS. The directions say I need to run a wire to a switched power sourse in the fuse box. (10 amp recommended) can someone simplify this for me since i dont know anything about wiring.? any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can strip the end of the extended red wire and put it on one leg of the radio fuse, the fuse will hold it in. It's a switched source so the power will be cut off when you open the door. Tapping into the TCS hot wire behind the bezel is easier...depending on where you located the switch.

    You can also crimp on a spade terminal and plug it in.

    whatda mean ED? I have always just wrapped it around the fuse. How can you crimp it on the spade? You are talking about the spade of the fuse correct? Im thinking of a wire crimper, crimping around the metal spade of the fuse and breaking it, lol. Can anyone Splain this method to me?

    I thin he means crimp on a male spade connector, and plug it into one of the empty slots.

    That's known as the correct way of doing things.

    Hey Ed..where can i get a male spade connector? what your saying is the red wire can plug into the spade connector which in turn will plug into the fusebox? (Im really not dumb, i just dont know much about this! LOL)

    You can get spade connectors at any auto parts store. After that you have everything correct. There's an auxillary spot that it'll plug into.
