    Does anyone know the AWG on the wiring that attaches the HU?
    I'm trying to crimp on connectors to the battery and accessory wires without stripping or soldering. What are those called and where can I find them?

    Thanks!

    Looks like 20 gauge wire to me, I was just poking around in there a couple days ago.

    Plugs into an existing fuse receptacle and gives you a fused pigtail (red wire) while still protecting your original circuit. Make sure to run another cable from the new circuit to a ground somewhere (there's usually a grounding screw near the battery in the engine compartment.)

    Yes, in the fuse panel (driver side door), some of the fuses are always on (battery), and only when the key is in the on position (accessory). Basically, you remove the existing fuse and slide that device into its place.
