I'm trying to hardwire my Escort Passport Radar detector through the sunroof controls and cannot figure out which wire is the 12v accessory wire. Does anyone have any knowledge on which wires I should be tapping in to? I did manage to get the sunroof control module out so I can work up there but without a multimeter it really doesn't help so much! Thanks for any help...

I would also like to know. I have my radar detector from my last car just laying around. I want to use it, but I don't want to do the ol' big-curly-wire going to my cig lighter.

I had the same question a few months back. I undid the steering wheel column cover, 1 screw on other side but you need to turn the steering wheel to get at them. There are a number of wires that you can tap into, i chose the ignition so my V1 turns on with the car.

If you don't have side airbags, I would recommend wiring it similar to the stock autodimming mirror.

Install manual is here: http://zoltiz.com/cars/tc/files

Mirror install manual shows were to tap into.

For those of you with the 8500, i would recommend buying a long thick telephone wire and a coupler so you can have the mute button right by your hand as you shift. Its very handy to have that extra muter. I will do this later on this week when i have time.
