i could be able to do that but i was woundering if i could splice the wires for the cigg lighter wire and the radio wires.

For my Sirius, I just cut the cig lighter adapter part off, tapped in to the power for my cig lighter, added a inline fuse, then grounded it to my chassis. Worked like a charm.

Get one that matches the amperage rating of the fuse that is in the cig lighter adapter. I think mine was a 3 amp or something like that. Actually, now that I think of it, I didn't cut mine, I took it apart so I could see which wire was hot and which one was ground.

FYI you can get a female cig light adapter that'll fit on the end of your existing wire, and on the other end of said adapter you'll just have a + and a -.
