96 Cobra 12v power source

Hi eveyone. I'm new to this, dont know if I'm posting this in the right spot. I just bought a 96 cobra and i'm trying to find a switched 12v power source in the passenger side kick panel area by the pcm. Anyone have a schematic or wire color diagram? I just need to splice into the right wire that isn't always on, like the window power or something.. Its for a shift light... .

Why wouldn't you want to tap into the fuse box? It would be much easier and probably less wire to deal with.

Hey man, thanks for the quick reply. Honestly, i originally had that thing hooked up in my 99 gt at the pcm. It was really easy. I went to do the same in the new cobra. Couldnt find anything online as far as a power source goes. But, this is after the fact that i tapped into both the tach pin and gound. I figure why go through even more trouble rewiring. Might as well just find something by the pcm. I know something is there.

I'm not sure if it differs but there is a diagram for a 96 gt on this page, maybe it will help.

I know Haynes has the wire diagrams, and the hardback copies have color diagrams.

If your using an accessory wire use the fuse panel or a radio wire. Work smarter not harder man good luck

12volts.com vehicles wirering or audiovoxtechservices.com, u should find any vehicle and it tells you almost every wire from ligths to tach (from a 16years experience car audio/electronics installer)

No worries bro. Freakin A, now i installed it behind the tach and tapped into every wire i was supposed to an nothing. Not working at all! I checked all connections, they are good. Wtf, maybe a bad ground? The thing doesnt even light up at all to run test. Its a raptor shift light.
