Well, I know you are going to hate this answer....
but use a volt meter to check the wires and also
decide if you want key on 12v or 12v constant.

You have choices on this one.

Are you powering a gauge or more than that ?

Typically red is hot with key on, honestly I'd have to check to
be exact and there are a few choices there.

For accessories and extra power I look to things like cigarette lighter wire
it is hot with key on.
There is also a way to tap the fusebox directly.
