|BadCoder||I have the same setup, with the smart button and have been wondering exactly how this should be done and where the button should be mounted.. Any chance you could post a pic of how yours turned out?|

Run it up the side of the dash through the weather stripping up to the A-pillar.

Search is your friend...
This has been discussed numerous times on this thread. There is ONE key operated fuse in the panel under the dash. lower right fuse... It is easier to wire it into the rear view mirror wiring if you have it.

|dbenney||WOW 45 views and no one had any ideas? Well just in case anyone else ever has this problem, I got it solved. This car must be different than my Malibu was. When I plugged the add a circuit in with a fuse in it, i had no power no matter what slot i had the fuse in. When i put a second spare fuse in it, it was fine. I also played around with the ground and put on another connector to make sure it was getting a goon connection between the wire and connector.|

problem hard wiring escort 9500ix
I have been trying to hardwire my 9500ix since i got my car 2 weeks ago with nothing but problems. I got it wired in my previous car without a hitch. I thought that maybe when i removed wiring from old car i might have broke a wire so i got a new add a circuit and a new smart cord.
I have tried NUMEROUS fuses under the dash and used the 8mm screw that secures the passenger floor vent to the dash crossbar, but i get NO power. Just to make sure the detector wasnt messed up I plugged it into the 12V outlet in the console and it worked. This has got me baffled. I have never had this much trouble wiring ANYTHING in a car. Someone please help me figure this out. I was thinking that maybe the plastic floor vent was interfering with the ground so i tested the install with the vent not between the bolt head and the crossbar just for testing with the same results of no power. any ideas?
