MTX-1020, RJ-11, 20″ Long Overall Length, Patented Radar Detector Power Cord with 2 Amp in-Line Fuse, Military Grade Taps, Made in USA

MirrorTap is Proudly Designed and Manufactured in the USA by J28 Design, Inc., makers of BlendMount and MirrorTap product Lines. MirrorTap Fits radar detectors with RJ11 male jack. No More coiled cigarette lighter power cords. The MirrorTap Power Cord simply plugs into any wire harness close to your AUTO DIMMING MIRROR, whether it be exposed on the rear face of the mirror or concealed above the mirror. No cutting or splicing wires, and No messing with the Air Bags inside your A-pillar as is done with regular hardwire installations to the fuse box under the Dash. Step by Step Guidelines on Using a Voltmeter to Locate Power and Ground: (#1) First set your voltmeter to the continuity setting (should beep when you touch the red and black probes together, telling you they are shorted) (#2) Find a ground on the car somewhere, like a bolt under the dash, or a metal cross member. (#3) Put the black probe on that ground, and touch the back of each exposed wire connector in the mirror harness with the red probe. (#4) For each wire that beeps, that means that wire is grounded. Turn the ignition to the on position, then back to off, and make sure it beeps regardless of ignition position. (#5) Put the voltmeter into VDC mode, to measure DC volts, turn the ignition to the on position. (#6) Put the black probe on the ground wire found in #4. (#7) 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. (Finally) That should define which two ports in that harness into which you would plug the MirrorTap, the black Prong into #4 above, and the Red to #7.

    If you’re considering a DIY cable vs. this one Stop debating whether you should make your own cable and just buy this one. For several days, I contemplated making my own cable since I already own the RJ11 crimping tool. After I priced all of the materials such as pins, sheathing and fuse, I decided to go with this pre-made cord instead. In the end, I’m glad I didn’t go DIY because the cord would not have turned out as nice as the MirrorTap MTX brand. Even the shrink wrap used in this cable is high quality and remains flexible. Having…

    Versatile Mirror Tap I ordered this connector because it was available in a longer length than others I have seen. I particularly liked the many connection options available with the several tips offered for the product. I did install it in my 2011 Murano that has a smart mirror with homelink and noticed a click type sound from the speaker of my Escort 9500IX when I first connected the cord. The speaker emits this sound every time I connect the cord but it does not continue or interfere with the functionality of…

    I first tried a cheaper mirror tap cord that worked for a short while, but was poorly manufactured and eventually stopped working. Was holding back on spending this much vs. a fuse tap, but with the power distribution being much harder to access in the Charger, it was the easiest way to go. The 20″ length was great to be able to run the wire up and out of the mirror (and rain sensor, and lane camera) trim piece vs. out of the side which looked pretty cheap. Where this really beats out the…
