    Being full CAN you have to take it from the cigarette lighter socket. Duncan mentioned this to me when he fitted my boost gauge and I'm sure that's what he said.

    What timer are you fitting?

    Yep, you won't be able to get an ignition and permanent 12V from behind the light switch module on a full CAN car, so that'd leave the cig lighter as one option for a full CAN car.

    Have you tried testing out the fusebox area for these powers?? Obvious place to look with the meter. I don't know what current draw these take, but does it matter what fuse it is assigned to, as long as it's rated high enough?

    Wiring up to the fuse box will also mean that you won't have to feed wires through the bulkhead. It also means that you won't be able to leave the car in gear (as the handbrake guidance recommends) and may also invalidate your insurance.

    I honestly don't know how you can do it - with all the electrics being controlled by the CANBUS network, there really aren't any ignition live wires anywhere except the cig lighter sockets.
