I'm trying to hard wire my radar detector into the passenger compartment fusebox. I was wondering if anyone has already done it and have advice on which one is the best location to tap into in the myriad of fuses. And what method you used to tap into it. Not sure if there is a blank space I can use too.

David Applewood? How would you do it?

Thanks!

I have done this on an 05 trailblazer, all that I did was wire it to a ground and got the positive feed from the aux cigatette lighter that was only hot when the ignition was on, I put an in line fuse and just used t-taps to tap into the wire, I have not done it on a new malibu so I am not sure what all is hot when then ignition is on.

Thanks!

I've tapped into the cigarette lighter. Unfortunately, it's hot all the time. I'll just have to remember to turn the radar detector off.

just get a volt meter or a test light and cycle the key until you find one thats on when the ignition is on. usually the wiper one is good.
