Default Key on power wire under dash?

I'm wondering were there is a good key on power wire under dash to hook a cb up to instead of running wires through the firewall. Need to know ASAP thank u in advance.

I just ran my wiring directly from the battery to a fuse panel that my CB guy mounted under the hood
that fuse panel has 4 fuses, only 3 were used & the wires all pass through the firewall into the switch panel mounted inside, the CB does not get power from the switch panel, it gets it directly from the fuse panel

You could wire your CB wires to a plug that fits into the cigarette lighter



or run your cb wiring to the back side of the female part of the lighter socket
there should be enough power to run a 4 watt CB
( it would not be enough power to run my 35 + watt CB )
