God morning all;
Just picked up a fuse switch for #8 fuse. Question is where did you mount the switch? I dont have much wire, so it has to be fairly close to the fuse panel. Many thanks, and happy holidays.

I mounted my switch a couple inches to the right of the steering column on a flat plastic panel area. I could reach there from under and behind the dash. It's about a 2-3' wire run down the console to the fuse. You could mount it on the console as long as it's where you don't hit it with a knee or accidently otherwise.

I put mine on the driver's side kick plate on the center console. The fuse box is located on the passenger side in the console, and there was plenty of wire to get there (less than 12" away).

The switch (I also purchased the fuse switch kit) is shallow and round, about 5/8", and there's no way you would accidentally engage it by hitting it with your foot or leg.

I attached mine to the side of the heater outlet duct just inches in front of the fuse panel on the passengers side. I can easily reach it from behind the wheel. The heater outlet feels pretty flimsy but this setup has worked well since March '06 and is up on the hump and away from the passengers feet.

I mounted mine on the cover to the fuse panel. Picked up a rocker swith and inline fuse holder at Auto zone. I drilled out the fuse link in a fuse, soldered wires to the top of the now defective fuse. I made a series circuit from one side of the fuse to the switch and then the inline fuse holder and back to the other side of the fuse. It works great accept when the DW bumps it with her foot and I can't get my key out.
