Install. Pull the front of the map light console down until the snaps detach then slide unit forward, down and out. Tap into the yellow wire of the map light connector and attach the ground lug to an available bolt. Route the wire with the phone plug through the front of the headliner. Helps to tape things up when your done. Also wrap the remaining cord bundle in foam to prevent rattles. There is a small "pocket" as shown for stuffing the bundle into.

Thanks for the detailed instructions.

I’m planning on moving up to an Escort 8500 or the likes soon.

PS: how do you lower your visor?

Blew a fuse

I tried this direct wire option and each time I blew the little fuse in the direct wire kit. The last time that I tried I think I blew the fuse to my interior lights. First question is what in the world can I be doing wrong to make this happen? And second, does anyone know where the fuse to the interior light is located. I checked the panal on the drivers side down by the e-brake and I checked under the hood. Could not find it anywhere. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have just purchased a Valentine One Radar Detec. and I realy like the idea Enforcer used to tap into the map light console....I know he stated to pull from the front untill it snaps but I seem to be pulling but I just dont want to take a chance on it breaking....

I have the sunroof buttons on my MO....I'm sure that does not make a diff. but....

My question to you guys are what & how did Enforcer pull that map light console without breaking it?

Many thanks in advanced!!!

Question:

Does the power to the map light circuit cut out after a certain period? That is, can I leave the detector power switch on all the time after leaving the car without having to worry about draining the battery?

Here's another rather simple option. Works very well and the spring type power cord make it a breeze to drop into the side door pocket while remaining connected and you can also open the door. I mounted an extra twin socket to the fuse panel door and tapped into the existig fuse for the front socket with an "add a fuse". A small piece of velcro keeps the detector in place. Kinda need this setup up here because they do carry a $1000 fine if you get caught with one plus you lose the detector.

Enforcer,

If you tap into the yello is that part of the ingitiion system... meaning does your detector turn off when the car is turned off and on when the car is running?

I don't remember the color. but it is the wire that supplies power to the map lights. It has "logic" built into it controller on the circuit.

This wire supplies power to the map lights when the vehicle is unlocked, and turns off 5 minutes after the ignition is switched off.

Help! Blown fuse to interior lights

I blew the fuse to my interior lights when I went to direct wire my radar detector. Where is the fuse for these lights? I can't find it in the fuse block or under the hood.

Thanks!

Is blown fuse really a blown Body Control Module?

Now I'm wondering. Could my blown fuse really be a blown body control module? What's this cost to replace?

Thanks,
Mark
