Remember 03/04 wiring/software is "Different" from 05/06. Engine fuse boxes are not interchangeable.
All of your DIY tutorials ALWAYS help Dicktator!

I've downloaded all of them, even added some of the more important (to me anyway) files to my Books Apps on my iPhone and iPad for easy reference. Truly a gold mine. Thanks!

Cheers,

Rich

So just to be sure I got this, here are a couple of DIY images. If I've finally gotten it through my thick head, I'm off to the auto parts store (again)!
Yup, I believe you have it exactly right. I cannot take the credit for the "fix", it was Autoprof that explained the method and way to get 'er done.

UPDATE NOTE: The first three attached photos of the fuse tap are WRONG. There should only be one fuse for this project, the 7.5a fuse in the top of the fuse tap. The 20a fuse should not be re-used. This is a "jumper" not, an "add-a-circuit" setup. The fifth image attached is the correct way to do it.

Well, I guess not. Thought I had it down, but when I create that jumper the two accessory outlets are hot again, with or without the key on. In addition, when I connect the jumper (#46 to #44 right-side only) the fan/blower comes on low. Go figure.

I thought it might be a fuse polarity issue so I swapped the original 20a and 7.5a fuses around (see attachments) but with the same results.

Weird.

I'm sure I'm missing something or perhaps I am just not destined to enjoy this mod.

Thoughts?

Corrected. Original post indicated #48 when it should have been #44)

Instructions say to connect to the right side of #44.

D'oh. My typo. You are correct, it's supposed to be #44 - I corrected my post. But if you look at the picture of my fuse box with the jumper installed, it is in fact on the right side of #44 (just like you have it in yours). Phew! Thought I was really losing it!

So right now the moment I connect the fuse tap itself, the accessory outlets are hot again (without the key in the ignition). I connected the lead to the right side of #44 and they are still hot... plus the blower comes on low.

I'm at a bit of a loss.

No need to trouble yourself though, you've done all you can I think. I'll chalk it up to gremlins (ugly, UGLY car!)

Think I'll run a line from an empty slot that's switched, #52, up to the dash. I don't relish trying to get the wires under the console, but you gotta do whatcha' gotta do.

BTW, hope you got your baby washed! They run so much better afterward, I swear!

Thanks so much!

Okay... I'm an idiot, I admit it, right here, right now.

My error is on clear display in the photos of the fuse tap I posted earlier. No where is it written but I assumed (and we all know what that means) that the original 20a fuse was supposed to be put into the fuse tap... using it like an added circuit. Of course not. That's not what this is about. It's basically a jumper.

The fuse tap is only supposed to have the one, single fuse in it. Sigh.

Once I removed the 20a fuse and plugged it back in... tah da! It works exactly as you and Autoprof said it would.

Soooo, to button it up, here are a couple of photos of the mod I did on the fuse tap. Mostly followed Autoprof's advice but I went ahead and soldered the terminal and put some shrink wrap on it for good measure.

Thanks Autoprof and BlueStreak! Saved me from some back-breaking wire fishing and other miscellaneous hardships. I owe you both!

Glad you got it figured out.
Sorry I was out with my wife after the car show today and just had a chance to log back on.

I believe step 2, I mention to install fuse into top slot only. I will edit that to bold face for anyone in the future.

Thanks to @BlueStreak and @moscooter for helping you with this modification.

Oh, it's there all right... means I have to look at the details though... and, well.

Hope you and the wife had a great time at the car show. Ours is next Saturday. Fingers crossed the sun will make it to the show as well!

Thanks again to you, BlueStreak and to moscooter as well!

Cheers,

Rich

Sorry I messed you up. My other taps had both slots being used. I forgot this one didn't need the bottom slot filled. Glad you figured it out.

Thanks, richsadams, I love learning from your mistakes as it saves me backaches and skinned knuckles.
Now when I make the same mistakes (yeah I probably will) I'll know what's wrong right away.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

Oh, no, my stupidity is not on you at all. I take full responsibility!

Thanks so much for your help. Were it not for my thick skull I would have aced it on the first try. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

HA! Well, over time I can safely say that you're in for a treat because I don't plan to stop messing up at this point in my life!

It's nice to have a partner to swap screw-ups with.
