I hear alot about people hard-wiring a radar detector in the WRX. Does anyone out there have a write-up of the install? I keep the detector above the rearview mirror and someone mentioned wiring it to the dome light. Thanks in advance.
searching rules. Click the search button and then type what you want. I followed this pretty much exactly. Its very easy.
1st step-pull off dome light, let it dangle
2nd step-get out compass mirror wire( i trimmed the shielding a bit)
3rd step-attach splice into the yellow(check on that) wire
4th step-tape ground wire near hole where dome light screw will go through(sand/scrape off paint around hole, and test before screwing shut)
5th step-shove everything in
6th step-screw it in there
Havn't had a chance to get to it yet, I just got out of the field at work. I will have to tackle it this weekend, I am not quite as high speed as others out there I diden't spring for the valentine (lets hope I don't regret it) I am installing a whistler hardired above my mirror. I will let you guys know how it turns out.
