    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out source for power supply (12V) under dashboard which I could use to connect accessories.
    Can any one point me the location from where i could pull out a 12V connection without cutting any wires.

    Thanks.

    Any other option.
    I need power supply that can be used for multiple accessories, which are controlled using the empty switches available on dashboard, just under AC vent.

    the only way is to catch a competent electrician and ask him to tap 12V from the fuse box by plugging wires without slicing any.
    i tapped all the wires from beneath the fusebox when i installed aftermarket tacho with shift indicator in my alto.

    Well Viny bro, i have a thought, which i wanna use in my ride. Just get a relay(like horn relay) and take the switching signal from the cigg. lighter cables underneath the center console by using proper clips ( male female clips) so as to save the warranty. And get the power directly from battery after adding a fuse in series. In this way u can use many accessories without voiding the warranty. How is that.

    There is fuse in the fuse box under the steering column, F32 which is marked as fuse for sub-woofer, as we don't have sub-woofer in punto/linea, you can take the output of F32 as a source for 12V power. And, you have the advantage fuse protection without adding additional fuse carrier. The fuse is rated at 15Amps.
