    Default Fuse rating and take off for TA and AUX

    I am in the middle of retro fitting a Travel Assistant and extra Aux socket in the rear of my Signum.

    I need to take off 2 ignition switched live's.

    What fuse's are needed for each item I am adding and what fuse location should I take the ignition live's from?

    Thanks

    Sorry lee only just seen your post

    Just had a quick read of the HOW-TO and I guess the fuse rating for the TA is:-

    take out the 25a fuse from F26, place the fuse in the red cable fuse holder, add the supplied 20a fuse to the holder and then plug back into way F26
    So I'm guessing F26 is replaced with a 20a fuse but the 25a one that was removed was installed in line to the TA so it is double fused in the live going to fuse F26

    Well thats what I can make of it

    Incase you've not come across the HOW-TO:- http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15099

    Hope it helps

    Yeah I wasnt sure what fuse ended up as the TA fuse.

    Any idea where the Aux socket (And fuse rating) is taken from?

    Have heard mention that some have wired their AUX socket to the rear cigarette lighter

    Or as Duncan did and installed a permanent live in the boot

    Dont really want to be running more wires to the rear cigarette socket and not wanting a permanent live socket (I will probably leave something plugged in and drain the battery lol)

    Decided in fuse 15 or 16 as they are rated at 15Amp for heated front seats and I dont have them (Even though there is a fuse fitted)
