2017 Ford Focus ST1. Here are the options:

I’m wondering if perhaps #87, the heated steering wheel, which as far as all the switches I’ve found, is something I don’t have.

Pardon the photo orientation. I did take them vertically so it’s the forum code .....

That fuse tap is for a different type of fuse I think.

You probably need one like this:

Literally any. Use an add-a-line like shown above and theres nothing to worry about. F85 would be my first try for switched power

I decided to go ahead wire things up, pending receipt of the proper fuse tap.

I terminated the wiring my way vs using the inline splice components.

I terminated the fuse tap I’ll be terminating the new fuse tap same as the previous one, with Anderson PowerPoles.
On the detector side I terminated that in APPs as well.

you see below the flexibility this allows, both in giving power to the RD and providing fuse box power to ... whatever (including the RD)
