Hi I want to piggy back a permanent live from the fuses under the coin box, right drivers side. I have already done one for my dash cam into the cigar lighter but I need a permanent live does anyone know which is the best fuse to piggy back off. Thanks again.

The fuse move only works in MQB. On PQ you have to use a add a fuse and steal power off the main buss bar and then tap it into the accessory. Be warned you will get a code you can't get rid of as canbus will try and shut it off and fail as a few different things are fed on the accessory fuse.

Best way to do it is by running a constant live from tht main fuse panel under the hood and replace the dash 12v port with a new one tucking the controlled one into the dash. That way all systems stay happy.
