Same one you used, pre collision assist, front camera etc.  Not what the book says it is...  I found that not one fuse corresponded to the book, ones that were spare were in use and vice versa etc

Ohhhh, that's strange. I think mine were all relatively correct, however I might be wrong. My Edge was registered Sep 2016 so a slightly older one whether that makes any difference.

Maybe, it says in the book that fuse 36 15a (which is right) heated seat and rear view mirror.  However when I pulled it out, pre collision assist and front camera error came on dash.  I have checked all the fuses in that passenger fuse box and they are all fine.

Everything still dead.  I looked at that but that one has no power at all,  Mine has interior lights and pumps etc all powered.

All fixed.  Took the AA man 2 hours.  So in the engine bay, under the main fuse box there is a plastic flap.  Lift that up and there are 6 main fuses.  A 50amp ignition fuse had blown.  But they are riveted in, so we had to drill it out and bolt a new fuse in.  All in everything working except the dash cam which I will have to start from scratch again tomorrow.  Not sure if I want to touch the fuse box again....!!!.

Wow, can't see that being linked to the cam install. Anyhow, good that it's sorted

Yes and it has all been fine.  Boot is still playing up but that is another issue!

Good to hear... apart from the boot!

Was given a BlackVue 750s 2 channel dashcam for Christmas and eventually found time today to start the fit, following the guide in this thread from @Trent Edge.  The camera came bundled with a Power Magic Pro, which allows it to be used whilst parked too, whilst also fully switches it off if the battery voltage goes below a certain threshold. I used the same 2 fuses for my taps as per the guide, though I found that partially taking out the glovebox made access for feeding wires so much easier.  No tools required to drop the glovebox, you just push the support arm on the left side out of its little notch, then flick the two rubberised tabs at the inner top edge of the box and it tilts forward so you can see behind. I also found an easier accessible earthing point, just to the right behind the glovebox (8mm bolt). The front camera is now fitted but due to a lack of light I haven’t got round to fitting the rear camera yet. I’ll hopefully get that done on Sunday.  So far so good. Thanks Trent Edge, I’m looking forward to feeding wires through various places on Sunday. 😜
