    Hardwired my V1

    Wow, this couldnt have been simpler. Took about 20 minutes with the hardwire kit from Valentine. The hot lead that I used was from the Passenger Airbag connector that is a switched wire. Ran the wire up the headliner and out the front about 6 inches, attached to V1 and boom....easiest V1 install Ive ever done.
    I will get some pix this weekend...

    Nice job F! I did the exact same with mine--easy access, even got the wire enclosed in the plastic channel that runs down the windshield en route to the mirror. The nice thing about it is that's the only circuit available in the overhead console that's switched on ignition.

    I'm not going to pull my console down to take pics of the wire, as it's too risky given the small solder joint I'm using to the telephone wire. The ignition lead is tied to the airbag indicator PCB, and I'm thinking the +12V source has a pink stripe on the wire. Sunroof and map lights are on RAP.
