#470128 Dash Cam Problems...help!!!

Posted by M4RC on 26 March 2015 - 08:35 PM

Just for future viewers...... I have overcome the problem off the dash am turning itself off/cutting out and it now stays on 24-7.

I done this by adding a voltage booster/stabiliser so the voltage now stays at a stable 17.5 voltsImageUploadedByFord OC1427401502.509397.jpg ImageUploadedByFord OC1427401523.102991.jpg ImageUploadedByFord OC1427401540.279911.jpg

Same here and it works find with just a 2 amp fuse for the dash cam circuit.
 
Marc have you tried connecting it to a standard 12v cig adapter? If it has the same problem then I don't know what you could do. Unless you can set the camera to not turn off automatically when it loses power, or maybe turn off after a few seconds and not instantly.


Connecting it to any fuse etc.. Is not the problem anymore. I could connect it to any fuse and it will still turn off when the car is started.

I've bought a voltage booster/stabiliser to steady the voltage so I'll try that out

Posted by M4RC on 03 March 2015 - 07:19 PM

Looking at my exhaust book here it looks like 2.25" or 57mm certainly for aftermarket standard exhaust.


Hi, thanks a lot for the help!! Yeah, I ended up going out and measuring it and right enough its 57mm

if you have the time when doing yours perhaps take note of the tools your using and a few pictures and create a guide specifically for fiesta owners,


Yeah, that would be a good idea :) cheers

alot of fiesta owners including Matthew have followed the guide for the focus,
Exactly the same engine and egr location is the same, if you scoll through the pages on the link below Matthew has added info on his experience blanking the 1.6TDCi in the fiesta. http://www.fordowner...-16tdci-engine/
I recommend upgrading induction filter for maximum mpg after blanking the egr valve see link for discount code to purchase Green Cotton Performance Induction Filter's aswell as Ritchbrook products http://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/


Aww okay that's good then!!! Yeah, I've just read it all haha I'll just purchase on then.

I've got a full induction kit so no worries there haha

LEDs generally consume a lot less power so you'll never have to worry about that...

It'll easily do 120-30. Mines is only a 1.6 diesel and I've had 120 out of it... On a private road of coarse ;)
