I wanted to power my cell phone for charging overnight. I thought I could back feed 12V to the outlet. I removed the fuse for the front outlet and cut it apart. Soldered an inline fuse to it and plugged that into the fog light spade. The other end went into the lower terminal where the fuse came out of. It did power the outlet but, I could hear a relay come on. I left it for the day because Had to go out. Later on I measured the current drain. It looked like 130 ma. Without the phone it was 100 ma.

I decided to put a new outlet in. A trip to Radio Shack and I installed the new outlet just to the left of the glove box and low on that empty area. Wired the fuse that came with it to the fog light spade. That should do fine.
