Radar Detector Wiring question

Can anyone tell me... I want to hard wire my radar detector. The logical place would be the acc / cigarette lighter. I have a sunroof and pulled the trim with lights and buttons down. The harness is bunched together with lots of colored wires. Common sense is to tap into red and black however there is no solid red. Who knows which wire is supplying the power?

I recall folks here taping behind the rear view mirror trim, one of the vendors has a kit for it I believe. There have been instructions posted years ago. Sorry I can't be of more help, except that its been done.

Red & Black is not very common throughout OE auto wiring. Use a DVM to see which wire is switched with ACC. Is there a pink with green stripe?

Invisicord the place to buy the wire. Let me go check back on some of my posts for the wire color you want. I just did this and it was awesome.

Green/pink is the acc hot wire. Black is the ground. When you get the invisicord it comes with red and green. Red is the hot wire that goes into the green/pink and green is the negative that gets connected to the black.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the help. After frying my Bel detector I decided to buy a new one and plug it in the accessory jack and run the wire that way. I did tap into the accessory jack wires but it kept blowing my inline fuse. Couldn't figure it out. It was just two wires to tap into. Pink with stripe and a black. Pain in the *** to tie up my jack but I couldn't risk frying my new detector.
