I am installing a amp in my 2013 maverick and wanting to put my amp on a rocker switch so I can power it without the key switch on and the fuel pump running. Is there a power wire near the console that is constant on or will I have to come straight from the battery for a constant on?

Or does the fuel pump shut off after so long if not started? I just don't want to turn key on if its constantly running or hard on it??

Tks in advance on replies

You don't want to run up your hours with key on so wire straight to battery

I would install a inline fuse between the battery and switch.

The remote turn-on from a head unit is what will turn the amp on and off. Are you running a head unit, or just an auxiliary in? If so, put 12V constant on 1 side of the switch, and the remote turn-on to the other side. Like the others said, the constant power/ground need to go directly to the battery.

I took power and ground from battery to switch then put wire from the power out on switch to the remote and power on the amp. This correct? With turning on switch I have it wired to give power to remote and power wire to amp???
