Adding 12v accessory socket
Does anyone have any experience of adding an additional 12v accessory socket in the boot of a b-max ?
My last car had three sockets, one in the front of the centre console, one in the rear of the centre console and another in the boot.
I want to add another to power an electric cool box, at the moment the cable for this runs through the back seats into the cabin to the front socket which is untidy and keeps getting pulled when people catch it getting in and out of the car, not ideal !
Question is how diffficult, or easy, would this be especially as i want it to be a switched socket that is only live when the ignition is on. Would the new socket need it's own fused supply and if so are there any empty fused connections on the fuse pannel ?
The current socket is permanently live, which i'm sure you all know.
Is it a diy type of job or would it be better to get an expert auto electrician to do the work ?
I don't mind tackling most car related jobs but i'm a bit wary of the electrical side of things, although i have done wiring jobs in cars before but never a 12v socket.
Thoughts and tips, hints etc appreciated.
