Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

green and pink wire is not correct for a escort and a loredo 2011. That much I can confirm for 100% sure. I want that hour of my life back ! Reads 14V on the escort when i rig it up with yellow to green and pink and black to black. Officially give up,

So you get no power on at all with green/pink? Or just no power to radar when you start the Jeep?

Do you get the radar to come on with ignition with the 'yellow to green and whit and black to black'? Or still manual?

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

Thanks for the help TTUMBIO I'd love to get this working here is exactly what I'm getting.

When put the yellow into the " green and Pink" wire and the black into "the black wire"

The radar detector will NOT power on with ignition but turns on if I hit the "PWR" But. The display on the solo S2 just reads "Auto" and in the corner it reads "14.9V" which it normally does not have a volt measurement. Radar is set to "apwr MTN and I toggled to "apwr time" never used the setting "apwr off"

No I have not tried a " a green and white wire" I will try that tomorrow. Everything I found said to put the yellow end in the "green/Pink" black on the "black"

thanks again in advance

Wait.....is your Escort S2 the same as the Escort Solo S2, which is battery powered or optional 12V?

If so, that is the problem. The Solo series was not designed to be hardwired off battery power, which also means it can not be hardwired even when using a direct 12V. A friend had this issue 4-5 years ago when we were working on his. Pretty much any non-battery powered radar detector will power on with ignition.

If you can swing $400, then you can get one of the top, if not the best, radar detector on the market - Valentine One. I have had Escorts, two or three different Beltronics, and none really come close to the Valentine One in performance. The only downside is that is it pretty ugly and 1990s-made looking, but the insides are what count.

If you would like to stay under/at $300, then I believe the Passport 8500 X50 Red would be one of the top radar detectors at that range. There is now a Passport 9500ix, which a friend has, and when compared with the V1 - almost identical. That one runs around $500 I think.

Hope that helps! Sorry the S2 can not be hardwired. Seems like something that should have been possible only when on 12V.

I will have to go back out and switch it over to the black wire to see if it makes a difference. Installed the power to the same pink/green wire that you did.
Installed my Valentine 1 same as PMD G8 with TT's cable connections
Simple install with Invisicord 12" micro cable
Install took all of 10 minutes
Works like a charm

Thanks to TT for finding Pink/Green hot wire and black ground

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

Hey PMD G8 - can you confirm the model of the Blendmount that you used? BV1-2001? I have 2011 GC Overland Summit and a prior post questioned the mount shown in the pictures...

Talking Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

I'm a big fan of SOLO 3 (the newest battery detector) I have a valentine (brand new) returned it w/30 days for full refund.. loved it.. but the new solo 3 with batteries.. I can move from car to car.. it detects radar really far away.. trust me I was surprised-- it auto mutes.. it auto turns off/on (in case you forget) its dark ALL the time unless it's detecting.. like the opposite of my gf.. who bitches all the time and never shuts her trap.

Oh and if you ask about battery life-- had it 4-5 months now.. same two AA batteries- LOVE IT!

I get it arrows are cool.. but at the end of the day-- when a detector beeps.. you slow down. regardless of angle of popo approach.

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

I'm having a nightmare of a team trying to install this invisicord for use with my V1. I'm using black-->black and yellow-->pink/green, pushing the pins into the back of the harness and it's just not making a connection. I've tried it from all different sides of the wires, been at this for about two hours now.

It's not the invisicord and I know I have the right wires because I can push the pins into the holes in the front of the harness that correspond to the black and pink/green wires and my V1 powers right up. It's just not making a connection when I push them into the back of the harness no matter what I do.

Any pointers?

I did mine s while ago but I can try.

Mine was 07 non uconnect non auto dim.

Its easier to do with the mirror disconnected from the windshield mount. Its one screw you loosen and mirror disconnects. Now looking back of mirror with harness plugged into mirror you know which wires. So you just jam that invisicord pin under or over the factory wire. Its more like wedged in there than they like plug together.

You got the REAL invisicord right?

i know this is old, but it is normal - the power on the S2 will shut off because it's an electronic on/off. i have that on my BMW and the 14-15 v reading is normal to, it's a battery monitor. plus it will read auto and be lit up when it's connected to power versus on power savings mode when on batteries. the S2 is made for 12v or battery operation.
