Finding A Neutral

30 December 2013 - 01:19 PM

Hi, can anyone help me with finding a neutral wire (in my connect van) to connect into for a reversing camera, I have been given a detailed diagram from Stoney of my 6000cd radio rear plug but not sure which wire might be the neutral, or do I need to tap into the fuse box?

Or should i seek an auto electrician to sort.

Hi, can anyone advise how I can remove the Ford 6000 cd radio from the dash of a 2013 transit connect mk 1 as I need access to the wires to connect a reversing camera.



Radio Live Wire Connection For Camera

26 December 2013 - 03:51 PM

Hi fellow members,

Merry Christmas

I know that this is not stricly the correct place to post about my new Transit Connect van (pics in transit section) but I thought more of you might  see the post.

Anyhow I have bought a reversing camera and I plan to have it constantly on when the ignition is live.

There are reccomendations to connect the live wire to power everything from the radio, now what I need to know is if anyone can tell me which wire to connect to so that when the ignition is off so is the camera and monitor, I have noticed that the date and time constantly show on the radio ,so is it possible  to do what I am asking about.

How do I remove the radio from the dash to get to the wires.

The radio is a 6000 cd model.



Out With The Old In With The Old

Well, been and done it, that is I have left my college lecturing/assessing job of ten years and come back into the reality of working for myself again, I have 27 years experience of house building, repairs etc.

The main reason is that I have just bought myself a demonstrator Transit Connect swb Trend in shiny silver 90 hp.

Looked at other makes but the Connect drove and handled the best, apeared stronger built and had enough sensible work gadgets to sway me.

Will post some pics when I can sort my phone,



New Fiesta

Hi fellow fiesta owners, a couple of months ago I posted a general request on your views on the 1.2 mk 7 fiesta.
I just thought that I should update you to the fact that my oldest daughter did buy a used style plus based on your thoughts.
Many thanks to those of you that responded.
