I use the bracket that is made to clip to your sunvisor and just slide it into the headliner. My wire is run down the driver's A-pillar and hard wire into the ign. wire under the dash.GasDoc said:I have a Valentine also. Can you be more specific on how you mounted your detector? Thanks...
Also how did you wire your bad boy.
The Service Manual shows only two screws on your console. Remove them and using your fingertips pull down at one corner to pop the clips loose.Tmation said:I mounted mine to the left of the black dots as the suction cups wouldn't stick to them.
My car is an LE with sunroof and I can only find the two screws in the front console, it still feels like its bolted up somewhere else though and I don't want to force it off.
I was able to run the wire under the headliner, down the a pillar which is held on by two screws(the handle) and some clips, and then into the fuse holder area on the passenger side. May be easier for you if you have doubts. Took me 5 minutes.PHLOCKER said:I am getting ready to go do this now with my Passport 8500 2004 LE..any suggestions?? I only see the 2 screws in the sunglass holder.....help
Test them. Use a test light or meter. If you don't have one, make one. Use the bulb from the over head, tape a wire on either side, put one wire on ground, and test with the other. If it lights up, its +. Then, using the + on one side, test another wire. If that lights up, its -. Remember, test with the doors closed so you know the power is still there when the doors are closed and the light's off. Personally, I'd like the radar to turn on and off automatically with the car, so mine is hooked up on an accessory wire instead of constant. This way I don't have to continually turn on and off and I don't forget to turn it off and kill my battery in 3 days.PHLOCKER said:ok....we popped off the console, found the wire harness going to the power mirror. Which wire is the POWER wire? We found a Green wire with brown (could be Red, maybe our eyes are playing games)....how do we know for sure what wire is the POWER to tap into??
Good to know there is an ignition wire there. :2cool:scr38 said:It is the Green/Red wire that runs to the mirror. The power turns on and off with the ignition. I think you have found the correct wire. There is no Green/Brown wire there.
