David,

You could also try putting an eyelet fitting on the yellow wire and attaching the eyelet to the glovebox door switch. That is if your car has one (it should I think). With a simple multimeter you can find which leg of the switch is always hot, that's the leg to put the eye on.

I needed constant power for memory on the stereo I put in the 108, and didn't want to tie in to the fuse ends (read - wrapped around the hot side of a fuse post like the PO did). I checked both legs of the glovebox switch and found that the botton leg was alway hot. The memory wire was just long enough to route to the switch. Works perfectly.
