I want to hook up my 2-way radio. I have found a good physical location (the radio under the passenger seat and the head in front of the shifter). I am now looking for power. I don't want to just plug it into the cigarette lighter.

I need 8A (peak, <1A on receive) 12V and I would like it to switch on with the vehicle so that I don't have a battery drain when the vehicle is sitting. Is there a wire somewhere that I can tap?

Yes, I have considered pulling the lower dash and going after the accessory line to the socket; but first I am going to ask if there is an easier way.

Also, there is a electronic block under the passenger seat, is having a radio near that likely to cause problems?
