One of these have to be the 12V power right? I don't know how to get to one of my power outlets. They used to make this so simple. I bought a Escort Direct Wire, older cars I just easily spliced into the cigarette lighter with their 3m connector. Which one is the 12V?

Your attachments aren't showing for me. Check out these posts to perhaps wire it directly to the fuse box or perhaps elsewhere. I posted # 6 there telling how I did mine.

Direct power from fuse box

No juice might be slots that are only powered when engine is on.

I don’t think you put both the fuses in. It’s hard to see in the pIcture. The add a fuse has two slots. One for the original fuse and one for your radar.
The 2nd "slot" doesn't fit any "fuse" I have and its a different insert than the one I have a 20 fuse in.

I tried engine on, in D, N and R. Nada. On the other empty slots as well.

Dude I've been using add a fuses for years. They all have two fuses in the black part. Also you'll need to confirm that the there is power in the fuse location that you've chosen to insert it into the vehicle.

Also there are different types you can buy. Did you buy the proper add a fuse? Here's a pic with the differences.

What ground did you choose to use?

Also try to flip the add a fuse upside down for a moment so the red wire is coming out of the top. I realize you don't have it fused properly yet but it may work. I'd like to see if it turns on meaning your ground is good.
