Default Hardwire Radar into BRZ

here is a quick and easy DIY to hardwire your radar into your BRZ. i know there is one already on this site, but this one is a bit simpler IMO.

to start get the right wireless connectors. blue ones were too big, as well as the on that came with the V-1.

anyway i wired it to the auto-dimming mirror the harness SHOULD be there even if you don't have the mirror as an accessory.

to get to it simply pull the dome light, it ISN'T screwed in and just pooped out. there are 4 metal clips that hold it in place just give it a nice tug. (i'm not responsible for you snapping anything)



then locate the harness. it will be on the right, and will consist of three wires. BLACK BLUE GREY. atleast thats what it was one mine.



you tap ground to the BLACK wire which is ground.

then you tap power to the GREY wire which was power.
the blue wire didn't get any power when i tested it.

then after you tap it just make sure to connect your radar to double check before you tuck everything up. it should be on in acc and on.

i mounted my radar in the top left corner and ran the wire along the headliner.



here is where i mounted it. out of the way but close enough to mute. also for radars to work effectively they HAVE TO BE MOUNTED HIGH with clear visibility and no obstructions. so mount carefully.

enjoy,

-ivan
