2020 maxx defender newbie question


Recommended Posts

hello, I just bought a new defender maxx xt. I want to add a cd player and have it mounted under my seat. I ran power and auxiliary wires to the area under the dash near the switches and 12v outlet, but none of the unused wires zipped together under there have power. The 12v cigarette lighter has juice, so I was wondering if I need to add a fuse to enable power to these, which I assume are for powered add-ons. If so, where is this fuse box. Please help if you have a minute.

I saw a thread on this somewhere already.  If you search around a little in here you should find your answer.

My 19 is quite a bit different than the 20’s.  I have a simple bus bar in the middle of the dash, underneath.  It has a constant hot and a keyed hot, you just add a ring terminal and run a fused wire to your accessory, relay, or switch.  Depending on how many amps your accessory uses.

Aggiecat, any chance you have a picture of the wires?   I picked up a 2021 max hd10 and trying to install a sound bar.  I want to have it wired to the key switch so there is no power to it unless the key is on.  I am having a hard time finding the right place to wire it. 

Thanks!

Matt

Matt- i have a 2021 Defender Max XT HD10 and have a sound bar I am going to install, did you figure out where to wire it in for keyed power?  Maybe you could save me the aggravation!
