New 2018 GT lessee here. I am looking to hardwire my radar detector, but I want to confirm the correct add a fuse size. The options appear to be: Micro, Mini, ATO (Regular), Low-profile. Can anyone confirm which one I need? Thanks


edit: From what I can tell, the 6 uses low profile fuses, but that a mini fits better. Looking at amazon.com/10-Pack-Add-circuit-Adapter/dp/B01DYQM6EO

After wasting a lot of time and money I've found only Mini Car Automotive Fuse Tap Add On that wraps around a fuse works. The issue is with the fuse cover as it allows almost no space. Even with the add on fuse I had to bend almost flush with the top of the other fuses.

Any chance you could post a link to one you recommend?


edit: I was able to find it, but it looks like this only connects to the 12V on side of the existing fuse. What about ground?

There's a screw next to the fuse panel. Or you can find some points above the center lights.

On my truck I found a wire with a test light under my dash board to when my truck key is in the on position it will power up so I went with it but I did add a on line fuse just to be safe.

The higher you place your detector on your windshield the better I have my Escort resting on my rear view mirror that way it’s out of site as well.
