Hi all,

I have just got a 2008 ford mondeo zetec mk4.

I successfully installed a parrot in my mark 3 focus and wanting to do the same in my new car.

All seems pretty straightforward however what I have seen it need to power it from a ignition switched live.

Where are these located, i read that the hazard warning light is ignirion live but I disagree, people have said the cig lighter is ignition.switched.and goes off 10 mins after turning ignition.off is this true. Or any other 100% ideas.

Many thanks

The mk4 Mondeo uses the gen3 radio which works on mk2/2.5 Focus and they definitely have an ignition live.

Tbh if they didn't then you'd get a permanent one hour mode on the radio.

Seeing as you'll be working on the back of the radio installing the sot lead anyway it's logical to wire in there.

Does the Parrot sot not have a permalive feed integrated into it already?

The Mki 9200 has a red and orange wire that can be switched around as in orange to red/red to orange which i found useful when i took it out my Clk and fitted to an X-Type Jaguar.

Hope it helps.
