Great adapter, but wrong fuse tap provided.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have always used the Metra wiring harness when available for my specific project car. However, this particular kit provides a separate ACC wiring cable to be connected to fuse box or other ACC wire. The mfd instructions and lack of Crutchfield specific instructions made for a confusing job, and difficult for the average buyer. No suggestions to how to connect or where to connect to was provided. No testing instructions to find one either. AND the most important problem, the fuse tap provided was for a mini fuse, where as the fuses used in the project car, 2009 Pontiac Vibe (Toyota Matrix), uses Low Profile mini fuses. So the cheap tap did not fit and broke when trying to jam it in. I had to go buy a separate "add a circuit" fuse tap for the LP mini fuse box. How would an average Joe or Jane know this? Oh, when I tried to call Crutchfield tech support, it said all circuits are busy and hung up on me....I'm a long time (decades) customer, this has been the worse experience.
Pros: Makes splicing wires simple and provides a factory feel.
Cons: Don't rely on the accuracy of the separate ACC cable.Crutchfield response on 7/3/2017 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Wan to issue an apology and help him further.
