    I need an unswitched 12v supply in my boot rated at no more than 1 amp.

    In the rear fuse box theres a few spare ways and one of which ive found has a permanent supply, on the rear of the fuse box its numbered 5 and coloured green but this does'nt correspond with fuse 5 on the front.My fuse schedule is missing from the car so I dont know whats what:(

    Does anyone know what the small socket on the rear of the box numbered 5 is? so I can buy the relevant plug.Or is there an easier way to pick up a supply.I could run one from the front fuse box busbar and buy a new fuse holder but id prefer not to.


    Or what does this one do? if its a permanent live I could splice into it and fuse it down.

    PM me, I think I have the lead that plugs into it. Its voice recognition (so you can check it against the fuse for voice recognition/linguatronic). May have thrown it away, or it may be in my tool box or Alfie's.

    The other one looks like an aftermarket device ? tracker ?? Or was 2002 before the 'standard mercedes alarm' was thatcham approved so they used an different on in UK ? (I think it was some years before that actually)

    Cheers

    As i'm being asked by others who want a power feed in the boot ...

    Its only a 5amp (or maybe 7.5amp) feed - see what fuse is for the linguatronic already in the fusebox & dont make it larger.

    Connector shell part number is
    A037 545 29 28
    Connector contact is
    A013 545 76 26
