Default 12V accessory wire color

I have a 2011 fx2 and I need to know the color of the 12v accessory wire...i am trying to install the prosport evo electric boost gauge...What wire do I splice into for the 12v accessory wire? I want the gauge to come on when my nav and everything else comes on (with the ignition). Thanks guys!

Head the the parts house and get a fuse extender that allows you to take a fuse out replace it with the extender and run power from it. The check you fuse block find one that turns on with the key. Pull it replace it with extender place both fuses in it run the pigtail wire to your passport and you are done with NO cutting wire harness.

Thanks but I'm okay with splicing a wire. I find it easier. I'll probably splice into one of the wires that run under the door sill. Do you happen to know the color for the wire?

No I don't I always use the extenders cause I can do like I did today and take all my mods out of my truck with out a trace.
