    Which 12v switched wire should I tap into for Bluetooth accessory power?

    I'm installing a parrot bluetooth into my wifes 2007 escalade. For accessory power, I've been reading on this forum I should tap into a brown wire that powers the passenger mirror. I was told it is on the right side of the dash. When testing with a test light, I found 2 pairs of brown wires had switchable power. So my question to all of the folks that have done this before, which wire or pair should I tap into? See attached pic.

    Thank you in advance for your advice.

    I would also like this answer since i want to install a parrot mk9200. I placed the "brain" behind the passenger side dash on the passenger side but I'm uncertain about which wire to tap. thx

    Look at the 7min mark. Looks like he is tapping into the same wires as the OP mentioned?

    Does anyone have the schematics on what the above(in video and OP pic) wires are for. In the video hes talking about a couple of brown wires on the pass side box.
