I was running a radar dectector out of the cigarette lighter in my V and it ran down the battery because the lighter is "constant on". Does anyone know how to wire the detector into the electrical harness?

Thanks.

If you want, off the key switch there is a brown wire that is +12 when the ignition is on (accessory power).

I "caught" that with a Scotch splice for my application.

You can reposition the steering wheel and get at it.

depending on the year of your car, you can install a relay that will cause the outlets to go off 8 minutes after you turn off the car. Very handy and you no longer have to worry about this again...
