#457212 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 08:33 PM

I'll have a look in the manual, and I want it only on ignition, otherwise it's going to fill up most of the memory card with videos of parked cars lol.

Instrument cluster is the one you need to plug in to then mate,

Cheers Lenny I'll have a look. Maybe the fuses are different in the Fiesta because it was only getting power with ignition. Will there be a fuse box diagram in the manual?

Should be in the manual mate if its not on the inside lid of fuse cover,
There has to be reference somewhere,
So you want it constant live or only on ignition?

#457174 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 07:08 PM

So here's what's happened so far. Took the car into a garage to have the dash cam wired in yesterday morning, and all seemed to be spot on. It took them only a couple of hours, cost only £29 including an adjustment to my headlights (which has improved them massively).
Then this morning, I noticed my rear wiper wasn't working, so straight away I assumed they did something wrong. Went straight back to them and they had a look, I think they said the fuse for the wiper was plugged into the piggy back fuse I gave them, and it wasn't getting power, if that makes sense. So they plugged the fuse into another slot, and he said it's working. The wiper is working but I forgot to check the camera at the time  :iim:
So the camera isn't getting power now. I think I'll have a look at the fuse box in the morning, so if anyone could explain what the problem might be that would be a huge help. Also could someone please point me to where I can get a diagram of what my fuse box should look like, where the fuse piggy back should be plugged in to, and where the earth should be connected. Hopefully I can get this sorted, don't want to go back a 3rd time because it's not a local garage, although they are near where my parents live.
Here are the parts I supplied them with to do the hard wiring:
Edit: I need the camera to only get power when ignition is on, which was the case after they first did the job.

Hi phil mate,
See my install guide here: http://www.fordowner...-mk25/?p=438442

PLug the piggyback in to the instrument cluster fuse,
This is live on ignition only.
Wipers are constant live power,

Piggy back fuse configuration,
Top fuse is for the dash cam,
Bottom fuse closest to the fuse board is the original fuse that was in the location.

Next time save yourself 30 quid and email me man :)

It's black. :)
Will sell it, just have to check it's all there first.

Wouldnt need cables mate just the joypad and console if your selling although would be handy to have house cables hooked up in the tv cabnet would make it easily transferable as id only use it for long distance holiday trips to keep the kids quiet.
And the odd game of GTA SanAndreas :lol:

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 03:36 PM

Avon ZV5 on mine as well and the difference in noise levels is noticeable. Best bit that is that I got a bit of a discount from my local Ford dealer. Well worth it. 

 The ZV5 gives better noise suppression compared to its predecessor the ZZ3
Shocked to hear dealership supplied such a quality brand name tyre then give you discount,
They usually stock Brabus tyres and sell them for 30 euro more than a garage.

Got mine through Piston heads - Tyre giant. £326 fully fitted for all 4. :)

Mine were 400 pound for all four 18" ZV5 fitted at local Tyre specialist orderd them in for me in two days couldnt have imported them cheaper myself :)
How are you finding them?

Thought I'd fit the mist jets. :)DSC_0039_zpsnnkptm6n.jpgDSC_0040_zpsudbtva7q.jpg
10 minutes later, all done. (Thanks to Lenny's guide). :)DSC_0041_zpsnzv0j0ih.jpg
Haven't tried them yet, as the car is all clean lol

Nicd upgrade on the jets too.

You physic as well as physco ??? It's only feb 15!!!

 ow miss perfect,
Be perfect and get your Mother out of my House!! Been here since wednesday.

Great to hear about the back Lenny. Maybe consider swimming as well as that would help. 
On holidays here in Wales and had to check on your progress. FYI, the roads around Snowdonia in Wales are really fun to drive. Definitely recommended  :)

Sounds good,
Nice of you to think of me while on holiday, I'm sure you will get some nice scenic pictures of the car there too,

Kerry has some great roads and hair pin turns over in the west of Ireland but Vicki doesn't like lateral G very much
i personally think its better than S3X because she screams my name more times when going in to a hair pin turn at 70kmh than she doen when i throw it up her Ar5e :lol:
Going to video Kerry Ring on dash cam then purchase a 3D headset for vicki displaying the fast hair pin turns,
Be sorted then :) ......:lol:


Hi Lenny. Where did you get your illuminated ignition ring from? I quite fancy one in blue

Thanks mate,
I used to buy them from Taobao in china for 2 pounds and sell em on eBay under the name FastFocusCustomParts but Taobao dealer done a runner with my last consignment totaling 90 euro there two years ago or perhaps wiped out in the tsunami ill never know.

There now available from ebay see link: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item485f08d84f

You take risk of losing money when dealing directly with China, takes up to 30 days to arrive but the cost is lower than eBay, choice is yours

I don't have the business anymore,
I used to do it for extra cash when i was unemployed.

lol that's fair enough lenny and my head would be in a spin to if I tried doing what you are doing as I wouldn't have a clue where to start lol.
look forward to the up date.
Enjoy your time out.
hows the back doing mate? 

Cheers mate,
I'm free styling it in some areas which is easy because i know in my head whats needed but its a frustrating incident which happened recently was regarding all the bolts that has me taking time out,

There sold individually,

The sellers don't ship directly to Ireland;
so i had to get them in via ParcelMotel,

ParcelMotel minimum charge is 4.50euro per item,

So with all that said i was purchasing bolts on eBay using my phone,
i had all the quantity's set but unknowingly at the time the page refreshed setting all quantity's back to 1 :lol:

I realised this two days after purchase.

I received one of each bolt which parcel motel then charged me 4.50 for each package,
I then had to go on again to purchase the remaining 3 and pay parcel motel AGAIN Aghhhh!!!

Pure school boy error on my behalf resulting in damn expensive bolts.
This has led to me taking some time out from the build because that incident was a complete waste of money,
I've managed to save a lot on the budget by shopping around but i hate to see wastage like that.

I'm delighted to inform that my back hasn't been that bad since December,
The condition is improving through physiotherapy and lots of walking its built up the muscle around it to help relieve it,
The pain still comes back if I'm doing certain jobs in work but I'm capable of doing a lot more than i was before.

I'm off medication since November because they changed it from pain killers to a psychotic drug called Neuronten these tablets are designed for people with high level epilepsy,
They work by slowing down the brains electronic pulses between cells,
Now I've never had epilepsy and don't want it, they prescribed these to slow down my nerve pain,
But if i was to suddenly stop taking them;
This would cause a surge of pulse in the brain which would trigger epilepsy,

So i haven't touched them at all as result I've had to learn how to cope with the condition performing the exercises that give relief and walking 15 miles per week.

I have to see pain physician again in May to discuss but it really makes every day amazing when you wake up pain free mate,
I was in pain everyday like a toothache in my lumber spine from 1st May 14 to 29th December 15

I have now bought the 15amp wire so I'll wait for it to arrive and then probably fit it next weekend I hope.
Lenny do you mind if I do a Multi-Quote on some of the previous questions I asked in previous post so I can dig into your knowledge? It'll be easier if I do it this way than you scrolling back through this.

Sure no problem,
I may not get back to you now immediatly as im in work until 23:00 but ill be sure to respond after that.

#456800 Green Cotton Performance Induction Filter Fitting Guide

Posted by Lenny on 20 February 2015 - 05:37 PM

Hi Lenny,


I'm very surprised that their using peugeots engines in a ford?! Would you happen to know what filter an 2009 1.6 ford focus(mk2.5 or mk2 not 100% sure). I like the look of the green one but is the price justified though? To me £60 seems quite steep for an induction kit no?

not 100% sure mate, 

if you log on to Micksgarage.com and insert your vehicle reg they will dispaly a list of filters specific to your motor. 


the 1.6tdci and 2.0tdci are both Citroen Peugeot engines mate the only Ford diesel is the 1.8TDCi 

can even purchase a HDi Peugeot engine cover and it will fit directly on top of the engine in the focus engine bay. 

it was a competition for efficient engines and Peugeot came up trumps so ford fitted them too
