Default Question about Connecting to "ACC" on 04 Bonnevill

Hello,
I am trying to install a direct SIRIUS Satellite Radio receiver. Its the PANASONIC compatible one. Anyways, to get power to it, I have to connect 3 wires.


1) Postive
2) Negative
3) ACC

I can hook up the postive and negative, and I am guessing the ACC one is for it'* only powered when the key is on, but where is a good place to hook up the ACC one. I do not want to pull out my radio... I was wondering if there is a good place near the battery under the back seat or what. I am also a novice, so if there'* a way, I would greatly appreciate instructions to where it is, and how to find it.

Thanks in advance

You may not need to connect ACC. The positive & negative connections, are they hot all the time?

Well I would guess that the positive and negative would be hot all the time, but I am afraid that the unit would overheat if it'* connected the entire time. As for the fuse box, that'* what I figured, that there would be a place there, but I don't really know what I am looking for, and when I find it I don't know what to do with it. Can you help point me in the right direction?

Cig lighter will work for you, but not on anything 99 and older. Those are always hot. Not acc switched.

(plugging this info in case someone with a 99 or older is reading this)
