    Hey guys,
    I am in the process of installing the back light for the front emblem, but I'm not sure where the best place is to tap into the parking lamp circuit, without messing too much with the stock wiring. Any ideas? Fuse box?

    From other posts I think you figured this out. Fuse position 30 is the 10A Tail/Park circuit. You can use an Add-a-fuse insert there to get another fused connection for the emblem. Picture attached. Check your manual for fuse positions Page 462 in my 2012 Hatch Canadian Base model manual. Should be the same for 2010+ but check. You do not want to be plugging in to some safety circuit like the anti-lock brakes!
