    Can anyone tell me if there are any free spaces on the fuse board to run a new 12v switched live?

    I need to wire in a 2nd cig socket (which will be located in the glove box), but would rather not tap into the existing loom if I can avoid it. I also want to avoid running a new live from the battery with a relay.

    Cheers in advance!

    All the spaces should have a live feed to them but not all spaces will be occupied.
    Look up the fuse chart and see whats empty in your car and then pick an empty slot that has the amps rating you need.
    You should see empty fuse spaces but there will be one fuse contact on it which is the live feed.
    Check what is 12v switched with a multimeter.

    I used this ADD A CIRCUIT- FUSE TAP - PIGGYBACK FUSE - TAKES STANDARD FUSE | eBay method to fit an auxillary power outlet into the boot of my E63. Makes the job easy.
