Default RAP wire 2001 SSEI

Can anyone tell me where I can find the RAP wire? I installed an XM radio and I want to power it from the RAP rather then the lighter. I looked around but I have been unable to find it.

On a side note, after I put the radio back in the dash after hooking up the xm direct adapter I lost most of the lighting in the LCD display. What a nightmare to fix. I got the front off and found that 2 of the bulbs for the LCD display were out and 3 others bulbs were out. I replaced them all with parts from an old Pontiac radio I had and it looks great but it was a lot of hassle to do and you have to be very careful not to break and wires to the display board (I did but I was able to fix them).

Thanks,

Static

I don't know what the RAP wire is, but please note that your XM radio runs 5 volts and that there is a step down transformer in the XM radio cig lighter adapter to convert 12 VDC to 5VDC. To hardwire in a aftermarket external XM/ SIRIUS radio one requires a step down adapter.

The RAP is the retained accessory power. I am just going to take the lighter adapter apart and solder leads to it once I find the RAP wire then tuck it behind the dash with the xm direct adapter.

Tap off of the radio'* 12v power. Not BATT power but the other one. That should be RAP.

The radio uses the dock and lock, so all I see is a ribbon cable. I would like to find the rap cable somewhere under the dash rather then having to run a wire back to the fuse block.

Thanks jwfirebird

So there is a fuse at the instrument panel. Looks like yellow wire feeds the rap to the radio.

I never could find a wire under the dash that worked. probed every yellow wire I could find. On my car a blue wire leaving the fuse box under the backseat had to be used. I am sure the rap exists someplace else but I got tired of messing with it.
