I ordered the wire that taps into the rearview mirror for our trucks to hardwire a radar detector. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the wires in the harness into the back of the rearview mirror? I just need to know which is the positive and ground wire. Thanks

Looks like an interesting project. One question though- how will you hide the wire if you get pulled over?

If they see a power cord hanging off your rear view it may arouse suspicion that you were using a radar detector. Less likely to get off is all I'm saying.

I don't have the wiring diagram but it is easy to do. Unplug the connector from the back of the mirror and take a voltage detector to find the ground and the SWITCHED 12 volt pin. Use the cigerette lighter for the one lead to find ground. If you google invisacord they should have the diagram and the step by step instructions.

Haven't you got instruction on your kit included?

It gave instructions but didnt tell me which hot wire to use. I have it working, but its on all the time. Now i did some research abmnd the middle pink wire should be used for + and it will turn off when trucks off.
