Where can I hardwire my Escort Passport 8500 radar detector in the WK?
 
I want to mount it up by the rear view mirror but I'm not too familiar with the wiring, anyone know a good spot to hardwire this in with the crimp clamp>? needs a 12v source (preferably one that's off when the car is off)

if you want, check out a invisicord.com

or you can make one. they plug into the back of the mirror. IIRC its the 2 wires all the way on the passenger side.

thats if you want one up by the mirror.

Ive got the hardwire smart cord from escort for the job with a single crimp on wire (it comes with the smart control buttons for muting it)

the reason i suggested invisicord for the power is it has to long pins that fit into the back of the mirror plug.

here is a wk2 but its the same wirwe just different pins

I had Car Toys install mine, but in the fuse box under the steering wheel there should be a fuse you can intertwine the power wire with that turns on/off with the ignition switch. Mine is just above the dash because my 5% tint strip disrupts the signal.

i did the invisicord like rob is talking about... it was easy as hell to do and you see no wires! i used the mount from a vette that put it on my visor looks clean

If you're mainly concerned about where to wire it to, there's easy access to both of the aux power ports. One is a constant source and the other is accessory controlled.

I ran mine back to the cigarette plug controlled by the key.
