      I just added the 12v socket in my 2012 S60 trunk. I found no socket harness in the turnk and initially wanted to spend 40 bucks on volvo socket but then fond this item on Amazon https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and for $10 now I have both the 12v and 2 usb socket in my trunk. I used the thick red wire and 20 amp fuse decribed above. easy peasy. Here are some picks, Sorry about the quality, not enough light but you'll get the idea

      supported two wires. I think the other one (with multiple wires) is for controlling lights on a trailer.
      Those were the two unused connectors I found. As I recall, they were down at the bottom
      towards the rear.

      ok so I'm a little confused. my 2012 looks exactly the same so the small green I don't have to wire in anywhere ?

      .

      did you just splice into the big red wire & make a ground with a add a fuse ?

      I would like to get mine wired up before my road trip in a couple days thanks

      No splicing, cutting. I jysr pit a spade xonmector ar the emd of the positive wire coming FROM the socket and put it inaide the connector withe Red wire. Dont forget to buy the fuse and put it in the fuse box as described above.

      My pics are still up & I can take a couple more of you like. It's a pretty simple instal & I'm glad I went with the dual pod off Amazon instead it's been very useful.
