I would like to go through the air vent that comes out of the middle of the dash. is this possible? has anyone else tried this. If not does a better way exist? from where my ESCORT Passport 9500ix is mounted on the windsheold that vent would show very little wire. the question is one I take to vent cover off then what. where is the best place to tap in and find 12v and ground. any and all help is appreciated.

John,
I didn't install mine and I haven't traced the wires but the alert indictor is mounted on top of my steering column and doesn't draw attention when parked or "lit up"

That is very creative. Only thing is my Escort 9500 has a mute and mark button that I really dont want to bypass. However wiring to the light would give a very clean look. Have you done this in you Maserati?

Yah, I put it directly into the passenger sun visor at the top... Looks very clean.

1) Remove the sun visors on each side so that your headliner is falling.
2) Find the wire leading from the visor and follow it as far towards the center of the car.
3) Tap into the red wire with your red wire.
4) Screw in the black wire into any of the screws that are in the body.
5) Put the sun sun visors back up.

Fin.

Sorry, brain fart on my part.

Screw it into ANY screw that goes into the metal in the car (ie ground)

With the key in, if you touch it to the screw the detector should turn on.
