I installed the hardwire kit for my v1 today. I ran a regular phone cord. When everything was done. . . The v1 wouldn't power up properly..... so I figured I had a bad connection. Well... I had to got to work...so I decided to just plug the phone cord into the lighter adapter, and the same thing. So I unplug the phone cord and plug in the coiled cord from valentine, and everything is fine. It seems that the phone cord is not allowing enough current to pass. Any ideas?
