    Smile New Member Tx

    Hey all,

    New member here in Texas. Looking to buy a new Escort 9500ix and with my new car, Ford Fusion Hybrid, trying to think of my mounting options.

    I like the invisicord idea but not sure which wires it will need to plug into the back of the RVM. It looks like 6 wires there. Kind of a newbie at this.

    If anyone has already done this type of install let me know.

    Welcome aboard!

    Invisicord - Installation

    First set your voltmeter to the continuity setting (should beep when you touch the red and black probes together, telling you they are shorted)
    Find a ground on the car somewhere, like a bolt under the dash, or a metal cross member.
    Put the black probe on that ground, and touch the back of each exposed wire connector in the mirror harness with the red probe.
    For each wire that beeps, that means that wire is grounded. Turn the inition to the on position, then back to off, and make sure it beeps regardless of ignition position.
    Put the voltmeter into VDC mode, to measure DC volts, turn the ignition to the on position.
    Put the black probe on the ground wire found in #4.
    Touch each of the wires in that harness with the red probe, and note which one(s) gives you +12-14 volts, turn the ignition off to verify that the volt readings go down to zero or close to zero.
    That should define which two ports in that harness into which you would plug the Invisicord, the black Invisicord heat shrink connector into #4 above, and the yellow to #7.

    Welcome to the forum. The 9500ix is a great detector and congratulations on your new car. Also, depending on where you live in Texas you might want to consider getting a set of laser jammers for your car.
