I want to install my Valentine 1 in my new Ram. How do i get the roof console down and what wires do I need to splice into for a switched 12vdc setup?

Thanks,
D.

Why not just run straight from the battery? I did, ran it up through the A-pillar, tucked behind the liner, and out the black wrap on the rear mirror cabling. 10 minute job.

Well - it is not switched for one...

I want a switched connection (on and off with the key). Why punch a hole and have to get a grommet, etc to the battery to do it right if there is a switched lead in the upper console to do it right?

I have a related ?

Which wire does what? I've been wanting to hardwire mine but I'm affraid to nuke it. Mine has a black and a black with white stripe. How would I jack that into the back of the lighter? Be specific I'm slow. ;) TIA

Most radar detectors come with a flat cable...no coils in it....that will work.

Oh, but it is. My radar detector has a voltage meter on it, and when the voltage meter gets a reading of under a certain number (4 volts, I think), it thinks/knows the ignition is off and kills itself.

How would the ignition effect the voltage of the battery? I bet your tied into a circut under the hood that operates off the ignition.

It doesn't. I am just assuming that it is measuring the other voltages that go off with the ignition (cig. lighter, seats, ect.) - so when those are turned off....the radar goes off. Thats all I can think of.

People that follow me around trying to start shiat. I have no idea why. :D

It's more of an issue on other sites, but I go invisable everywhere except where I moderate. Imagine that, me a mod. :)
