    I'm about to begin my first major mod to my 2000 Passat. (well, deviation from standard repairs) My goals are this: * 2A inline fuse to the detector that is switched (cig lighter is not) * Easily accessible 'mute' button that doesn't involve boring a hole or having to reach somewhere difficult...

    Just finished hardwiring my radar detecter into the sunroof control area. The problem is that the detector does not shut off when the car is off. Is this because I spliced it into the map lights? Can i splice it into the sunroof power and ground so that when the car is off there is no power?

    After catching a lot of flak in The Showroom for my car's interior, it's renewed my desire to finally hardwire my BEL 925. I guess the better question isn't 'how to', but 'where do I find the wire'? Is is something I can pick up at RadioShack or will I have to go through BEL to order it? TIA...

    I got the Vector radar for Fathers Day which comes standard with the coiled cigarette lighter plug. I went on their website and ordered the hardwire kit but it didn't come with any instruction.

    Just sold my Subaru WRX and wanted to hardwire the V1 into our family wagon. I searched for hardwire info here, but everyone seems to be using the rear wiper fuse spot. We have a 2004 GLS Wagon. In the Subaru I tapped a switched wire above the map lights in front of the mirror. Is there a...

    I used to have a ValentineOne that I had hardwired into the fusebox that worked beautifully. Yesterday, a year later, I tried to hardwire my XM SkyFi receiver by cutting the cigarette lighter adaptor end off, stripping some wire, crimping on a simple spade to the end and plugging it into an...

    Today I scratched a bunch of things off my car to-do list. Namely hardwiring my Passport 8500 and modifying a bunch of lock settings via vag-com. Looking around the forums, there has been alot of noobie confusion on how to do the hardwire. Namely, people just don't know where to attach the...
