This applies to those underprivilaged souls driving EA82's without power door locks.

Those of you with power door locks will just have to look elsewhere for your freebies!

I searched for something relavant to this and got no hits, so here goes:

I discovered something rather interesting while researching a solution to supplying power to power windows when the ignition is off (see http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/showthread.php?t=40086).

Fuse 19 (power door locks) has power supplied to it all the time in cars with power door locks - which is well known. What may not be so well known is that it exists and has power EVEN IN CARS WITHOUT POWER DOOR LOCKS!! So you have a source for an extra circuit - up to the 20A the door locks used - without doing any work! I've checked this in several non-power door lock cars and it seems to hold up. Some of the cars I checked even had the 20A fuse installed.

I hope this saves someone some work.

Thats awesome! How nice it is when you can plug right into the fuse block, and have it all clean....
