Grom adapter attaches to the car stereo to provide a USB port so you can listen to songs from your phone on the CD player. Everything hooked up great except I have to connect a red 12v wire and a ground wire. There should be pins where I can connect the wires according to the instructions.
Volvo Mechanic: Enes, VOLVO Master Technician replied 3 years ago
You can tap in wiring from 12 volt fuse splice it between those wires that safest to use

How do I identify the right wire? Do I have strip and test each one?
Volvo Mechanic: Enes, VOLVO Master Technician replied 3 years ago
No don't use that connector is your s40 new body style of old in 2004 it brake year new and old design body's (
Locate 12 volt outlet in center console use those wires you will have splice in those wires and they protected by fuse don't use the green connector it can create problems down road on other system
