When I wired my fuel pump to the unused nav light switch I wired the old fuel pump power to a cigarette lighter socket on the bracket that supports the ELT antenna. Itís handy for powering a portable ADS-B receiver that sits on my fuel tank top.

This is why I moved the wire from one side of the master solenoid to the other. Quick and easy change, if you want it powered only when the master is on.
