  • Finally got my burg in my mitts after 7 months!!

    And i immediately have a question

    I have a snooper Evolution and want to wire it in. It needs 12v like the ciggy lighter. In my old Astra G, i just popped it open and wired it into the back of the cig lighter cables using clip in connectors. can i still do this with a burg, because im worried about CANBUS denying me the car!!

        The cig lighter is permanant 12v, if you want a ignition 12v there is a red wire on the back of the heater control and also and earth, might be worth puting a fuse in tho

          The snooper comes with a Fused hardwire kit. its now in the back of the cig lighter. doesnt hurt to be less lazy than when im in my other car!! Having to turn it on and off isnt bad at all!!

            Havoc, I'm gonna do the same as you tomorrow! Help, where did you put your Snooper? and how did you run the wire?

            I wanna put the snooper right in the center of the dash by the grill, but am worried about how to run the cable, I want it hidden and just the plug and a little wire showing, thought of pushing it down between the screen and the dash, but dunno if thats possible!!

            How easy was it to get at the cig lighter cable?

              Okies.

              HOW TO: Install a Snooper (Evolution In my case)

              1. Under your handbrake there is a cover that goes over the OOBD port. Beside the gaiter for the handbrake is a finger hole, pull up and remove the cover.
              2. Using a T20 hexspanner undo the two screws holding down the gear surround.
              3. Gentle pull back the gear surround and the cigarrette lighter casing comes out. If it doesnt, it may require a wiggle.
              4. Using either soldering iron and solder or a dual cable crimp block, connect the fused live to the red wire.
              5. Using either a soldering iron and solder or a dual cable crimp block, connect the neg wire to the brown wire.
              6. Route the rest of the cable out the back of the center console, there is an opening near the pedals.
              7. Using the black sticky pads given with the snooper, stick one to the small tray above the pedals at each side of the footwell.
              8. leaving sufficient slack, stick the cable to the pads and tidy away into the tray/dash trim
              9. Besides the door:

              Using a small flat blade screwdriver, push the cable in between the fabric trim and the dash.

              Using this method, taking care not to damage anything, you can route the snooper power cable up to the base of the window.

              Connect up and turn on.

              Bear in mind that the snooper is attached to a permenantly live cable, and needs turning on and off... I couldnt find an ignition logic cable :S

              Pictures:

              *Remembering i have yet to poke my cable away door side



              The cable can be poked deeper, i have pulled it up so you can see better



              Trust me it does fit in between the two trim types.



              *EDIT* Mods ill pull my dash apart when i get time this weekend and draft up a proper HOW TO for future reference in the How to sect

                Haha nice guide

                Thanks for going out in the dark and taking pics, much appreciated

                Do you happen to know if there is space between the windscreen and the dash to poke the cable into?

                    Cheers for all your help, a how to is a great idea, best of luck with it. I'll take some pics of mine tomorrow too, maybe you can use them as a reference in your guide for people wanting to mount it in the center of the dash.

                    Cheers again
