switchable 5V DC

I'm rewiring my Sirius radio to turn off when the car is off and was wondering if anyone knows if there is a 5VDC connection on the interior fuse panel. One that is hot when the car is on and cold when the car is off.

just use a fuse tap and add it in with the radio head unit fuse, so it works whenever your radio is on. then just ground out the neg wire.

5 volts? what do you need 5 for? aren't you just splicing off the lighter socket plug??? if so you can do that.

My Sirius module runs on 5 volts. I can't splice off the cig lighters as they are "hot" even when the car is off.
