Ahhh, that's great! No, mine didn't come with an inline fuse. It didn't even come with a hardwire kit. I basically took the straight (not curly) cigarette lighter cord and modified it to work as a hardwire connector.autoxCLS said:My hardwire kit came with an in-line fuse daverman
We're not compromising the electrical integrity of the car by inserting those (very thin) wires behind the fuses! I agree that the spade connectors are the way to go, but inserting wires in the fuse block has been done for decades now. I think it's still very safe if done correctly.sotiri said:J.T.'s 3.2TL
Just because it was easy doesnt mean it was right. Acura put those connectors there so that we (and any other installer) can install any electrical devices WITHOUT compromising the electrical integrity of the car.
