    what are you looking to achieve?

    if it's extra security, all ve's already have an immobiliser as standard- so a remote kill switch isn't much help.

    There is one going into the main fuse box R/H front of engine bay. Although tracking it down isn't easy. I had to unfasten mine & break into the harness plugs and use the the multi meter until I found one.

    Yep that's why I was looking too. Mine also has a relay that turns the DRL's off as soon as you turn parkers or headlights on. Seems it is illegal to have them on together.

    wiper motor?

    only powered when ignition is on, but is safe enough to work on without blowing something up and keeps your work away from critical engine electrics.

    Hey stirringaxe, do you remember what colour the wire was (red I assume) and which loom it was in (left or right side when looking at the fuse box front on)?

    Already mounted some DLRs but now need to power them... The auto-elec said to wire them into the parkers (like many on here), but I'd prefer to have direct power and then a relay to the standard lights so they switch off when they come on. The other problem with direct power from the parkers, is you can't use them on the odd occasion when they're needed without the DLRs on then.

    I've also put fogs in but the Omega loom doesn't have the provisions for them (like the up-spec models that are plug 'n' play). I've got the appropriate OEM switch but I'm not sure if you can just hack into it or whether I'll need and aftermarket one. This is probably one for the auto-elec...
