Arrow Universal transmitter

Installing my universal transmitter today. I am having a hard time finding the power cable for it. How far above the passengers visor will this cable be? It seems like I might need someone with skinny fingers to llocate this cable. Any suggestions?

Mine was jammed into the very front. I just followed any wires I could find up there to find it, then realized the connector was wedged toward the very front. Had to use a small screwdriver (i.e., like the kind you would repair glasses with) to push the wires through a crack to where I could finally see the end connector. Keep looking/poking around. It's there.

Thanks KMA. I'll keep looking. The only one that I have located so far is the wiring for a cell phone speaker. It has a black harness. The one that I am looking for has a white harness, correct?
