try an unused fuse in the cabins fuse block. like a moon roof or power windows if they are unused.

This is what I did, I ran a 12 ga. wire from the battery into my controll panel,then put a fuse link just before the panel,then ran the lead into the panel to a main toggle switch,then from the main toggle to all my accessory lights and amp remotes positive sides. on the negative sides I ran the leads to my accessories individually.Then ground each accessory at theire respective mounting point. That way I am able to controll each and every item by itself or kill it all at once with the main switch (See my Madam Blue install and look at my controll panel)

well there are spaces in the fuse box that arent used but even if a space is or isnt used then are there still wires coming from the empty space? And when i look on the door of the fuse box to see which space does what and it says (not used) on space #8 and i put a fuse in there will it work? How would i do that?

well in my car anyway, on the fusebox cover it lists all the accessories. i have no sunroof but where it says sunroof on the panel there is still a fuse there. i took the fuse out and used a male push-on connector to plug in and there is power there even though its unused. use a multi-meter or a volt tester to check if its powered.
