Power source for V1 install in 99 Cab


Recommended Posts

I have read various V1 install threads. I am trying to determine the best (easy to access and switchable power set to turn on/off with the ignition) point to tap for power. I have the remote display too. Please list options that might be good. Also please provide pics if you have them.

Option #1: the headliner connection point. If I chose this area to get power, which wire would I use to get power from? See pic attached. Thanks

I just did this yesterday in my '02 Cab. In your first pic, the connector with 3 wires one is power and one is ground. I used those. They are constant on so you will have to manually turn the V1 off when you leave the car but no big deal really. Plus leaving the V1 attached to the windshield is an invitation to thieves anyway...

Thanks Midlife, but I really want power keyed to the ingnition since I park in my own garage at home as well as work which is where I drive 95% of the time. :)

Here is one:

My car has the phone module pigtail on the othe other side of the console. The wires are the same, and you can get power on the V1 with ignition on. I mounted the V1 on the passenger visor, have the readout on the steering column so only I can see it. I did this both on a cabrio and coupe, works great.

Thanks - I think this is exactly what I need and plan on doing this install over the weekend.

This site is great once again!!!
