Frisky Biskit said:After reviewing several options I ran the wire up through the inside of the car on the passenger side. If you remove the glove box there's a nice big grommet through the fire wall which allows enough extra space to stuff this wire through w/o having to drill any holes. A couple of wire ties along the face of the fire wall under the hood gets it over to the battery. It's a clean install and it looks like it grew there. I kept my hock up wiring in the spare compartment and bring it out under the hatch when needed. I don't remember exactly how the rest went except to say that by far the hardest part of this was figuring out the best place to run the wire up to the battery. The rest was cut & dried. I honestly don't know about the warranty issue, but I don't care. That's just me however, you must do what you're comfortable with.

Thanks for contacting Scion! In regards to that if there is a concern that arises from the trailer hitch that needs to be repaired it will not be covered under warranty if the hitch is the direct cause.
