power wire

Recommended Posts

Hi I have just got mt C Max 2ltr diesel auto Titanium 2011 I have had a focus for years, age forces change lol.

Anyway I am puttin my sat nav  and front dash cam in and want a power wire under steering wheel panel that works off ignition so I can hard wire them in I have looked and their is a loom just there anyone know what color wire would work off ignition or do I have to run a new one from other side.

Any help appreciated

 

Cheers

Alan

Think your best picking up at the fuse board passenger side, you can use a piggy back fuse off Ebay

What he says, piggy back fuses can be got from most motor factors or even Halfords

Its up to you really , Does your cig lighter turn off when ignition off? or do you your lights ? etc . Check your Manual for fuse numbers.

Hi Mate yes I put multi meter on all but 2 are live when ign off 3 are earth fuses so had to use 1 fuse bypass in fuse 85 which is 7.5 the other is 86 which is for restraining system which I didnt whant to mess with

so dash cam and sat nat are on bypass fuse into 85 only way I could find to do it . The rear dash cam easy put it into un-used fuse slot .

if anyone has better idea please let me know its cold and I am oldish lol will have to be fine for now
