    invisicord - radar hardwiring question.

    Hey, I have a 98 T/A. I was going to hardwire my Valentine 1 the hardway by running a wire up from the fuse box when I found this neat cord you can get that plugs into the back of the rearview mirror.

    You can find them here.

    However, after installing it today I've noticed that when the ACC power is turned on the rearview mirror only gets 8.3V. Then after 2 seconds it gets the full 12.*V.

    Does anyone have a diagram I could use detailing the back 3 connections that go to the rearview mirror?

    I hooked the black connection into the black cord, then I hooked the power 12V into the Blue / White. This makes the RD work when the doors are closed and you go to ACC.

    However the low voltage at startup has me worried. Is there something on the back of the rearview mirror I can try? Does anyone know what the colors on the back mean?

    Sorry for a confusing post!

    But thanks for helping!

    seems that it would be annoying to have the radar detector up so high / have the cord running down the middle of the windshield to the detector...

    I'd rather run it through the defrost vent up front... myself...

    but have you tested all the wires in there, and none of them have a full 12v in ACC mode?? it's probably because our lights 'fade' or whatnot...

    you know you can reprogram the lights to not fade, right? check the owners manual, maybe that will cause you to get full 12v
