Does anyone have instructions on how to hard wire a V-1 radar detector in a 2003 911 Turbo? I want to mount the detector on the upper portion of the winsheild and would like to run the wire along the top (between headliner and windshield). I assume the wire would run down the A pilar, under the dsah to a power source.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to resurrect this ancient topic, but I just found myself trying to do the exact same thing - wiring in a V1 to a 2003 996TT. The pics in the original thread (on the other forum) seem to be gone - would anyone happen to have the info?

Thanks.

Assuming the 996 is like the Boxster (which is is in so many ways) there are screws under the sun visor behind little flaps and one behind the lens for the alarm sensor in the middle. With these out the upper trim will hand free and allow you to pull the A-pillar trim off too. From there you should be able to thread the wire down behind the dash and go to the fuse box or the phone adaptor cable behind the console.

Hello,

I just got a 2003 X50 2 weeks ago and have hard-wired a V1 into the car. Removing the trim and going down the A-Pillar isn't necessary at all. I removed the trim piece that covers the sunroof motor area, and was able to find a switched 12v wire in there that I could tap into. A grounding point was also easy to find in this area.

This allowed me to stash the little power module in the same area, and run a custom 12" phone cord to the V1 which is located just above and to the left of the rearview mirror.

If you'd like photos, etc. please let me know.

Hi,

Thanks for the info. Since I am not very experienced with this kind of stuff, some photos would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Rob (artic silver),

If you are saying you hardwired your V1 to your sunroof power source, I would totally love to get photos as well as explanation. I have heard that this is the better (and easiest) way to hardwire a V1. Thanks in advance for all your insights and experienece!!!!!

cheers,

Steven

Hi Guys.... sorry for the long delay. I've been out of town and somewhat out of the loop for a while. I'm back now and will get photos taken tomorrow.

Thanks,

Rob :)

you do not need to disassemble the vi power module. it will fit fine. Also, you do not need a "sling". Just use the windshield mount between the top of the mirror and the headliner. Whole process takes a half hour.
