1. Ground the Black wire to metal part of the car. for example:

2. Look at your car's manual to see which fuse is not being used by your car. In the case of my Toyota Camry 2002, it was a 20A Seat Heater fuse.
Be sure to select a fuse which controls a part that is not permanently ON if you want the power to only be ON after you set the ignition power ON.

3. Get a Fuse Power Tap from your Auto Parts store, for example Part # 85606 from here:
Connect the Red 12V line from your adaptor to it and insert one end of your fuse in between here:
