Default V1 Hardwire Install for 2015 WRX?

Anybody hardwire their V1 (or any other radar detector) in the 2015 WRX yet? Looking for some guidance, thanks.

Do you already have the hardwire kit? If not you can DIY with RJ11 cord with inline fuse together with a 'fuse tap' for simple and non-invasive method. If not with the hardwire kit, you'll still want to get a fuse tap for easy install.

The mini fuse tap is what I use:
Amazon.com : FAST Shipping* ADD CIRCUIT BLADE STYLE ATM APS ATT LOW PROFILE MINI FUSE HOLDER FUSE TAP + 5AMP FUSE : AutomotiveAmazon.com : FAST Shipping* ADD CIRCUIT BLADE STYLE ATM APS ATT LOW PROFILE MINI FUSE HOLDER FUSE TAP + 5AMP FUSE : Automotive


- The fuse tap connects to the positive wire and will go into the fuse slot for the radio which will automatically turn on/off the radar detector.

- The ground wire can be screwed onto any chassis, shouldn't be hard to find. Extend the wire if you need to.

That's about it; the wiring can be routed and tucked on the edge of the headliner then behind the molding where the airbag is (may want to disconnect the battery and wait one minute) then down along side the door seal.

Should be an easy five minute install

No I don't have the hardwire kit, will look into this. Do you have any pics of your current setup? I'd be interested to see

that way works, but for my passport, I tapped the wires in the existing plug in the headliner by the passenger sun visor. There is more than enough space in there to tuck the coil of wire as well as the inline fuse

I have 2013 but the setup should work with any car; this is how I transferred my RD's (I have Beltronics) from Mazda to Toyota and now to the '13 WRX.

This should give you an idea on the pin out to make sure you hook the positive lead to the mini fuse tap: http://www.coruxgroup.com/go/o.MR2/aw11/hardwiring.html

I need to do a tutorial on this maybe in the near future as the internets doesn't seem to have a ton of info on basic universal hardwire install.

As a note, the plug I'm talking about is the autodimming mirror plug, if your car does not have the mirror, it will be taped up to the side by the passenger sun visor. If you don't see it, don't worry, it's there, just reach in there, tug and it will come free. It literally took me 7 minutes from sitting into the car to closing the door done.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the suction cups to stick to the black dots above the mirror, which I solved with some double sided tape and a piece of plastic(an old work badge).

You should fill out your information as well to help people better answer your questions.

Ok will check it out. Thanks for the help, yeah I think a universal install tutorial would go a long way since it would apply to so many people.

I pushed the cigarette lighter back behind the dash and just plugged in the v1 there using the standard cigarette lighter power plug - tried to tape it so it didn't disconnect. Ran the cords for the concealed display and laser jammer (LE-10 for the win) through the hole just created. V1 sits on the visor with the cord running up the A pillar and over.

Anywhere with a +12 DC power you can use it as a power source is what I meant

Can anyone confirm what color the 12v wire is on the auto dim plug?

So based off this thread, I found the autodimming mirror plug taped up above the passenger side sun visor. I also confirmed that the yellow and green wire is the 12 volt line. Everything works great, with one exception. When the car is put into reverse, the v1 powers down. I assume that reverse powers off the rear view mirror capabilities. Anyone else notice this? Any suggestions on how to make this a constant on?

The V1 comes with a direct-wire power adapter, I just hooked mine up to a "add a fuse" you can get them much cheaper on ebay.

The Included wire(with the V1) was long enough to route from the mirror down the A pillar to the fuse box.

So all you need is a extra fuse to put in, crimp the Included wire onto the "Add a Fuse" then find a ground point(any bare metal you can find under the dash)

Not my pic, but this is how it will look like.

Default V1 Hardwire Install for 2015 WRX?

So my 2015 auto dim mirror doesn't have a green and yellow wire. It has a black and white wire, and two separate black wires. Which is the power and which is ground? I'm thinking of ordering a mirrortap.

Here is a pic of the harness
