I am doing the same for my 2001 taurus. Same here... cig and extra port are full time on, so can not use. SO... i looked at the fuse box, under the driver dashboard, and found a couple of choices. Will find out tomorrow if they are "switched". Fuse #11 is for the rear washer & cellphone and #36 is for turn signals & back up lamps. Thinking either of these will work, as I think the ignition needs to be in ACC or ON, for these things to operate. Look at your 2002 user manual for fuses that seem simular. I think the 2001 and 2002 are the same. Here is a link photo, to the fuse box info.

Going use an "add-a-circuit" like this, to tap into the fuse.

Hope this helps.


Maybe we can let each other know what one we decided on. Kerry
