    Question Hardwire radar for mirror mount on 2017 LT

    I have been looking for a potential way to hard wire my radar detector into my 2017 LT. It has the standard mirror and OnStar in the ceiling. Think there is a way to route a wire and pull power from the OnStar? I'm about to email MirrorTap and see if they have anything.

    FYI I am looking to do this because I'm not a big fan of sending wire through the A Pillar and maintaining a clean appearance while minimizing clutter.

    Has anyone done the wiring? Photos?

    nope I ending doing the pillar. I made a whole new fuse box from battery because IMO going from other things could lead to many bad things. as I have done that 20+ yrs ago. I have a slew of extra things on my car this is why I went this route

    Welcome Aboard!

    Can you tap off of the map lights? At least they are keyed off & on as OnStar is not.

    Yes, that's the easiest way is to run power off the Dome light, did it twice to two cruzes now...

    So, pulled my car out of storage and started fiddling. Attached are some photos of a MirrorTap kit meant for a C6 vette being plugged about on the LT onstar. The length needs to be a bit longer, however I could not pull power. Figure it's because I don't know what's a ground off the wires. I'll be prodding about later, but here's the now: a photo of the Onstar plug I wish to work with.

    on 2017 premier - After finally finding a 12v source [alot of 5v there]and ground and using them, I soon found oem monitors current draw and was not happy. Ended up running back to fuse box

    If your mirror was a auto dimming, the mirror tap would have worked.

    Old thread, but how do you remove the Onstar Covers. It looks like a clamshell, but do you pull apart in the center, or from the back. I dont wanna break any clips.
