Default 12V Power Source.

Any suggestions on what to tap near the glovebox on a 94?

Need the powersource for the JAW wideband controller.

Don't really want to use the cigarette lighter socket as I use that to power various things including a high current draw 12V->120V inverter.

Thanks in advance.

Now someone is thinking. If you run an invertor off any of the skimpy wires that are miata circuits you'll melt something.

I got the power from the power window connector underneath the center console. Bonus that it only gets +12V and GND when the key is set to the ON position.

Was pulling to console to get to the radio, and spotted the unused connector and whipped out the multimeter to test.

Thanks guys.
