2019 Base CVT + Eyesight + Fogs
Hey, I just bought a radar detector and hardwired it using mirror taps. Figured it would be helpful for someone if I did a little guidee.
I used the following items:
- Uniden R7
- This splicing cable $15: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PMDWSVD/
- This mirror mount $30: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y2M9K11
Pull down the cover from the eyesight housing using a plastic trim removal tool. Unscrew the two bolts (IIRC 8mm) and pull down on the housing with two hands.
Now that it is open, follow the wire from the mirror and find where it connects. Insert the taps on the mirror side. Here is the color code:
Turn it so the wires go, from left to right: grey > black > white > others
Insert the black ground tap into black. Insert the red power wire into white. Reassemble and clean up. Here's a video that says the same thing I just wrote:
PS: No you can't have a bear like that they don't make them anymore.
