The red wire and the brown wire are staring at you once you remove the top cover. So I just inserted the tap into those two wires, made sure they were inserted as far as they would go and it worked great. No need to read numbers or remove the harness.

I bow to your ingenuity then. My motto is: never allow the obvious and easy path be the one you take!

Thanks for the write up.

Is there anywhere i can tap into that would turn off the RD as soon as I turn off the car? RD's are not legal in my part of the world and the last thing i need is for it to keep beeping if i get pulled over.
