Where to Run a Volt Meter

Does anyone know where the easiest place would be to run the positive and negative wire for a digital volt meter? btw i want to put it somewhere on the dash.

Thanks.

Negative to any chassis bolt you can find, and positive to ignition voltage at the BCM "C3" pin "D7"connector

Or you could just run a 16 AWG wire to any fuse that uses accesory power.

This is the BCM and the red connector is C3. D7 is in the top row 7th pin from the left. ( pink wire) But like Kris Wiedemann says you can also use a fuse tap on wiper fuse for instance it has accessory voltage.
