Hello all. I'm wiring a radar detector to my rearview mirror. I have the rearview mirror wiring exposed (Red, Black, Blue, Orange wires). I'm just not sure which one is the positive/power, and which one is the negative/ground. Don't want to assume the red/black wires are. Can anyone assist?

I am about to wire my radar detector to my rear view mirror. I have the same black, blue, red and orange wires as you. Was the black the ground and the orange the switched power? Did you insert the tap wires to the front or the rear of the molex connector? I'd appreciate any hints from your experience.

Hi all,

This is a great picture and wiring template example. The answer to the question for connecting a radar detector or camera that will turn on and off with the car is use the Black (#8 / GND) for ground and the Orange (#10 / IGN) for power.
