We have a 2012 Silverado. I installed a rear view camera on it. I THOUGHT it would be a straight forward project. Just find a spot on the fuse panel under the dash and splice into it. NOPE! It just ain't that simple any more. The ONLY place I could find that had power with the switch ON, and NO power with switch off was ONE terminal in the BIG box under the hood. The only way to accomplish my goal was to use one of those fuse taps.

Most companies went to putting the switch in the ground wire some time ago. I got a fuse box from a 98 Malibu a while back for a project and couldn't make it work. All the fuses had one leg hot when putting voltage to the lug for the battery cable.
It lets them use lighter-duty (and cheaper) switches.
