I'm trying to hard wire this satalite radio in the car and i need to know which radio wire is the ignition power wire (turns on and off with the car). Anybody know the color coding for this? or have any idea of other wires to tap into. I think the cig lighter stays on all the time or else i'd use that.

Also, never taken the radio out of this particular car... any tips? Old fords were a beeze.

Thanks,
Nick :dunno:

1.) take lighter and melt rubber off wire a couple inches away from connector.
2.) strip wire to be attatched about 1/2" and twist aroun newly exposed portion.
3.) solder all connections, then wrap in either tape or cut heat shrink and slip it over the connection.
4.) plug it in, enjoy.

here's a pic of the connector for the radio.



2nd pin from the right, bottow row. That's the wire you want.

FYI: You can also use the power source for your traction control/defrost/fog lights.

To remove the radio, pull carefully but firmly on the plastic trim piece that goes around the radio and heater controls and ducts. It will pop off. Underneath, there are two bolts that hold the radio in place.
