Engine bay ignition live

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am fitting a drl relay harness on my 2008 pre facelift focus, but I cant find an ignition live in the engine bay. There is a pos and neg to the battery, and a blue wire to go to an ignition live. I am unfamiliar with piggy back fuses(apparently they have to be installed a certain way) and don't want to go through the firewall.  If possible I would like to tap an existing wire. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

There will be loads of ignition lives beneth the engine bay fuse tray , just need a multimeter to find one.

Use a scotch lock to tap off the wire if you dont want to use a piggy back fuse carrier.

Very helpful thanks for the reply, I went for the piggy back option under the dash on the rear wiper fuse. Thanks again
