    Help installing Escort Passport 9500ix

    Hey all,

    I'm picking up my STI tonight and I just purchased a radar detector for it.
    Does anyone have a guide on what I need to buy so I can install and wire it?
    Thx.

    Hey Tony,

    Thx for the quick response.
    I'll definitely look into getting them.

    I've never opened up the car, you know where I can get some info on opening it up and installing the fuse wire?
    Thx again.

    The fuse box is on the lower left side of the front dash, below the steering wheel. There's a little pull handle there to access the fuse box.

    The way I would go about this

    Use a trim removal tool,screwdriver,crimping tool,zip ties

    1.remove A-pillar trim(pop out the piece that says "srs air bag") & remove the screw to do this
    2.loosen headliner
    3.Pop out left side dash trim
    4.remove fuse box cover(left lower side below steering wheel)
    5.Route wire through headliner to the mirror> A pillar(zip tie wire out of the way of the air bag) > to the fuse box.
    5.use any 3 amp fuse which is only hot when the car is running.
    6.Install ground to chassis.(you need to get the appropriate spade or ring terminal)
    7.After crimping your hot wire to the Add-a-fuse ,connect it to the fuse
    7.Check to see that radar detector works(only when you start the car)
    8.Put everything back together & you are good to go.

    Also a good video by radarroy
