#458509 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Mariner on 25 February 2015 - 04:22 PM


I forget what slot number mine was connected to, but it is the rear wiper fuse which is 15 amp. Here's the photo of my fuse box again so you can see how the fuse piggyback is connected:




With the wire from the piggyback going up, the original fuse goes in the slot closest to the fuse box (on the piggyback itself), and the fuse for your new circuit goes in the other slot. You don't have to connect the piggyback to the rear wiper slot but that works for me, and an advantage of this is that a rear wiper failure is not that serious, but something else failing like the instrument cluster could cause real problems lol.


Edit: be sure to check your manual because your fuse box might not be laid out the same as mine.


Good advice :-)

How easy is it to find a solid earth near the fusebox?

I plan to have a go at wiring my Nextbase 402G in at the weekend if the weather is dry.

Sounds like they didn't lock the steering wheel in the centre position before aligning the road wheel. If this is the case then the alignment procedure will need to be carried out again. As long as nothing else is found to be broken you shouldn't have to pay IMO.

The Sony DAB radio is fully covered in the manual I got with my car - page 220 onwards.

The change indicator adapts to your driving. If the car is new suggest you ignore it for now and drive normally. Turbo gives boost from aprox 1400 RPM so aim for that when changing until the car settles down a bit.

I have the full leather sport seats option in my Titanium and can say that they are very good quality indeed.

Well worth the extra 800 notes :-)

#332383 Help.. Nail In Tyre 205/40R/17

Certainly not repairable - tyre is sadly scrap.


I always get my tyres from tyreshopper - price quoted is fully fitted and service has always been excellent.




Maybe worth a look.

They are not bulbs - they are high intensity white LEDS built into the bottom of the mirror. Very effective :-)
