Radar Detector Hardwiring

2318 4
Hey guys. Just bought a Passport 9500ix and I have the mount to the mirror already for it. I am going to buy a mirror power tap for the detector. Anybody had issues or any experience in tapping into the onstar Cruzen mirror??? Halpp. Any suggestions or insight, criticism is welcome.

If you think that you can tap power from that mirror , then you need to test the voltages to the mirror first .

An alternative would to run your own power supply from the fuse box with an add a circuit .. just a long wire . you might get a ground at the mirror .. a schematic sure would be nice to look at also ..

Hey Mike. What did you finally do? I bought the Escort Max 360c and was going to hardwire to the 16 pin plug behind the plastic cover behind the mirror.

The only mirror that I know of in a Cruze that has constant power is a dimming mirror. All others will not work. You could power from the lighting circuit, but I ended up running a circuit from the fuse block up to the mirror area for my radar detector, dash cam and my Home-link upgrade.
