12v switched location

Does anyone know of a good 12v switched wire in the passenger kick panel area? Thanks

Nothing off the top of my head but you can tap into the wiring for the accessory outlet beneath the radio pretty easily and run wire from there. It's only a few screws to access that wiring.

This is a very convenient switched (top) and constant (bottom) location, although it's not in the desired area. Still, it's easy to run a wire from here.

On my S2, the ACC fuse has voltage when the key is in ACC or ON, and A/C fuse has voltage when the key is in ON. I assume S1 is similar enough.

Easy to figure out with a multimeter.

The accessory outlet is definitely switched on the S1. Turn the key to "Off" and nothing plugged into it receives power.
