Default 04 Rendezvous hook up sirius in dash tuner

Hi,
I bought a Sirius in dash tuner to run through my nav radio, but am wondering where I can attach the 12v power cable for the unit.
Don't really want to start splicing cables if I can avoid it.
Appreciate any advice.

Hot..... Your Serius radio is 5v DC, not 12V. To hook straight to 12V you must buy a step down converter. Inside the cigarette plug adapter is the 12v to 5v converter. DO NOT DIRECT WIRE YOUR SERIUS TO 12V, YOU WILL SMOKE IT....

Hi,
Appreciate the info.
Dumb question, how would I go about connecting through my ciagarette lighter.
The fuse for that was what I plannned to use since it never gets used.
Owners manual doesn't state which is the cigarette lighter fuse ???
New and in need of help.
