  1. Thanks Slide. I think I would go with just the wire jumper without a diode. Does anyone know what the minimum wire gauge is for a jumper on the BCM? I'm not sure what gauge wire they put on diodes, but I'd want to be sure I'm not under-sizing the wire I use just to get it in the slot. On that note, how big of a wire can fit in the slot?
  2. Does anyone know the minimum wire gauge that's needed for jumpers in this application? I'm guessing there's very low amperage involved, but I'd want to be sure.
  3. I found that my mirror connection didn't have a black and purple. The no-name brand mirror taps that I got on Amazon were junk - cracked off with very little pressure; they're going back. I should have gone with the Blend Mount items. I ended up wiring my detector as well as my dash cam from the driver side fuse panel. Having the roof console out made it really easy to fish the wires, and provided plenty of room to store excess wire; I used a pre-made detector wiring package that I had purchased for another vehicle but never used, so there was more wire than I needed, and I didn't want to bother with cutting the length, moving the fuse, etc. Overall it was a very easy and clean install.
  4. Do those create wind noise at all? I don't think I've ever been in a vehicle that had them.
  5. My mirror tap arrived today, I hope to install it tomorrow. I found a post on the forum and a few YouTube videos that all talk about using the purple and black wires in the mirror connection for positive and negative. They didn't mention pin numbers. Can you tell me what color wires you found ignition switched in the overhead console connector?
  6. Thanks Waffle. I ordered the gray and it arrived today. I haven't installed it yet, but it looks like an exact match.
  7. Craig, I can't answer question directly, but I would suggest installing it and see if it powers the detector. You might also check the specs for the detector and see what the power requirements are. I just got my '18 and I've ordered power taps from Amazon, but haven't received them yet. I'm wondering how you identified pin 8 for ground and 10 for power. In past vehicles, I've ordered Blendmount mirror taps and they provided instructions and identified pins for the specific vehicle you were installing them in. The Amazon items are generic though, and I don't expect much in the way of that kind of support. If you went through someone like Blendmount who told you to use those pins, I'd expect they know what kind of power is being supplied. Also, if these are the pins they recommended, then I know where to put mine . I'm also thinking about tapping into the large connector for the roof console. I just received one with Homelink, but haven't done the swap yet. It's plug and play and the wiring harness plugs into a large connector with what looks like at least a couple dozen pins. Some have to be ignition switched, because they power things like the sliding rear window, sunroof, etc., if equipped, that are only functional with the ignition or ACC on. I need to find the pin-outs for that connector.
  8. This is mu headliner... I'd like to add the Homelink as well, and based on this thread, I'd probably order the entire assembly as in the first link. How do I know what color is right for my interior? I have the Jet Black interior (RPO code HOU) with the light color on the roof and pillars. I would call the roof color "puddy", but I've seen the assembly available in colors called "gray", "light ash/gray" and "tan." Does anyone know which console color would be right for my interior?
