Hardwiring a radar detector to the fuse block.
This is a special power cord just for hardwiring cobra radar detectors. The cord is approximately 10 feet long. It has a radar connector on one end, and has bare wires and a fuse on the other end. The polarity of the wires is marked. Using this cord makes installation much easier.
Installation: (please read the note following these instructions)
Connect the fused wire to a fuse in the fuse box. The fuse for the radio is recommended. To connect the wire to a blade-type fuse, it is recommended to use a fuse tap available from Radio Shack. Part number 270-1204 for standard blade fuses, or part number 270-1218 for mini-blade fuses.
Plug the cable into the radar detector and turn on the detector.
- Turn on the ignition.
- Touch the other wire to various screws under the dash. When the detector turns on, you have found a ground screw. Attach the wire to this screw.
- Carefully run the cable to the detector, avoiding the brake and gas pedals.
This completes installation.
NOTE: The above instructions are for negative-ground electrical systems. More than 99% of all vehicles are negative-ground. If you are unsure, ask your local car dealer. If your vehicle is positive-ground, then you must connect the un-fused wire to the fuse box, and connect the fused wire to a ground screw.
