I am not sure what do you mean for that, but I think you want a cable that provides 12V while the key is ignition usually in the radio section. This subject is quite confusing because the normal colour “standard” is Red for 12V (all the time, used for the memories) and Yellow for 12V with the ignition. If I remember well, the corsa doesn’t quite follow and is the inverse. The Red cable found on the radio connector is 12V while ignition is ON. Can anyone else confirm it?

basically what i need to do is connect up an l.e.d which comes on when my ignition is OFF. To do this i can connect one wire from the L.E.D to permanent live and one to ignition live, therefore when ignition is off the circuit will flow and the led will be on, i just need to know where to find the ignition live wire? thanks

could you not just wire the LED up to somethin that already works on the same principle? like a current alarm LED or somethin. cant really think of anythin that works in that way but just an idea??

Take the drivers side kick pannel off, should be a torx screw at the bottom, cross head on side and a clip by the acceletator pedal which screws off.
Then you should be able to connect to the central locking wiring.
Connect red to red and black to black.
Red being permanent live and black being ignition live.

Red and black are also in the steering wheel column but more screws to get to them and you wont be able to use those blue 3m clips to quickly connect the wires.
