I have been trying to find the 12volt power source to the hand control switch on the dash? It gets power once the ignition switch is turned to ACC position. It is an orange color wire. Any ideas?

I don't know if this will clarify or confuse you regarding the wiring...at least another point of reference for you...good luck!

I had an issue where the power to the hand control would not turn on. It was a low voltage to a can type relay in the lower front load center.
The power came from the ignition switch which was way overloaded. I ended up putting a Bosch relay in the circuit to relieve the load on the ign switch.

Then I had another issue and finally supplied it directly from the ignition activated section of the lower front load center via a new breaker. Been working fine ever since.
