Question Constant 12+ amps to SuperMID, yet shuts off

I wired my SuperMID to a prong on the fuse box that is showing a constant 12+ amps even with the key out of the ignition.
However, the SuperMID works only with the key in the ignition.

I used to have the SuperMID hooked up to where it would stay on at all times. ( at night the lit screen would stay on even with the key out . ) I can't recall where I had it hooked in before .

What have I done wrong, because the SuperMID seems to work, yet it shuts down as I shut off the car.

I tried to wire in with the radio, but I must have the wrong wire, because I have to turn the key on to get current.

The radio needs the key to function anyways, so I thought I would try the fuse route.

I'm hoping you mean 12 volts?

Uhhhhhh . 12volts, 12 amps, 12 megawatts ....all the same right ?
Mods could you please delete this thread as well as my others related to the SuperMID* ?
I found the problem anyways ( pretty sure I had the VSS in place of the power wire. ) and its cluttering up the forum.

( * Or just keep it for laughs )
