How many amps will it draw? That will depend on where you can tap into a switched source.

Also you will need a volt meter...have one?

I can get my hands on a volt meter, not to familiar with how to use it though. It says to use a 5 amp fuse for the NX kit, not sure about the bottle heater and the remote opener.

Ok so as I understand the fuse box (all of the fuses on my car) are ignition switched right? Its only a matter of finding the right amp. Please some one correct me if i am wrong.

Your wrong. Some are always hot, some turn with the ignition, and some turn with a switch.

You need a volt meter, take it and find a fuse with no current (not hot) with the ignition off. Then turn key to on position, check to see if you have 11-13v if so and that fuse is 5 or higher use it.

MAKE SURE THE KIT HAS ITS OWN 5 AMP FUSE AFTER YOU SLICE INTO THE WIRE
