Question Scanner installation in 2005 chevy Aveo

I am installing a scanner in a 2005 chevy Aveo, I installed the antenna on the trunk and routed the cable through the molding and trim. the job turned out perfect. "Question" What is the best way to wire the scanner, through the cigarette lighter or is there a way to wire to the fuse box.

The best way would wire it directly to the fuse box. Your scanner should have an accessory to do this. It's fairly simple. Look on your scanners website for the direct wire kit. If they do not make it, cut the cigarette light plug off and splice the two wires onto a direct fuse adaptor sold at most auto parts stores.

Either find a spre fuse location or use an existing one. Use a accessory fuse location so the scanner turns off when the car is off.
