the cigarette lighter would be the best place to wire it into. If you wired it into the gauge gluster and it's still on then you obviously wired it to a constant hot. I have mine wired to the radio power. seems to work best. But if your too lazy to do any of these, you can always tap it into one of the fuses on the fuse panel. they make fuse taps. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/att...fuse-tape-.jpg

What I do is go to Advance and buy a fuse adaptor that has a wire coming out and holds 2 fuses
Then use a test light to see what fuses go hot with key on and cold with key off , remove this fuse , slide in the fuse adaptor , wire you AEM hot wire to the wire on the adaptor , then install the 2 fuses it takes , one for what ever your wiring in and the other replaces the fuse you took out

This by far the safest easiest way to wire something into your car

You need to remove it you havent cut any wires you remove the adaptor , plug in the origonal fuse and your done
