    Hi,

    I’m looking to hook the parking cable up to the fuse box (appears to be the easiest source to connect too) but a bit flummoxed as to how to connect it up.

    I’ve brought a piggyback fuse connector but this only connects one cable & the 55 parking cable has two.. is the answer as simple as that I just need two piggyback fuse connectors or is there a better way of connecting the cable?

    Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Only the positive wire will be fused, the other wire goes to earth

    I should of been more specific! The 55 parking cable has 3 wires - earth, permanent supply and ignition supply - I’ve connected the earth to the chassis but now left with the other two wires to connect.

    Then you'll need two fuse taps, one connected to a switched power source and one connected to a permanent power source
