2021 ST Dash Cam Fuse Selections
Archer_ posted a topic in Accessories & ModificationsI read a number of posts here and spent more painstaking hours than I care to confess trying to get the power straightened out for my recent ROVE R3 dash cam installation. As we all know, that driver's-side dashboard fuse panel is ridiculously difficult to access---but not impossible with tremendous patience and non-stop self-encouragement! Since it seems that Ford mixes things up a bit on the fuse panel each year, I want to share where I ultimately landed---in hopes of alleviating some of the burden for others. So here it is: My "constant power" fuse tap is the 30A "spare" in socket 28. The "ACC" fuse tap is the 10A "Delayed accessory..." in socket 2. I tried quite a number of different combinations before achieving access with this. If you have a 2021, I hope this saves you some effort. Cheers! Archer
2013 SEL - where to find 12v line linked to ignition
roadkill401 posted a topic in Accessories & ModificationsIt has come more and more apparent that you need to have a dash camera running all the time to prove that you are not in the wrong if you get into an accident, or stop sign / red light ticketing. For Christmas, my father purchased me a unit like he put into his 2007 Toyota Prius. He has an AUX 12v power point that is linked to the ignition so it turns off when the car is off. As we all know, this is not the case on the Ford Edge models like mine. The unit I got doesn't know enough to turn on and off with movement, so as long as there is power, it is running. Fine for some, but it pulls enough juice from the battery that it will easily run the car dead in 4-5 days. For me that is a problem as I don't drive every day and have gone for more than a week without needing to drive. One option is you have to remember to unplug the unit (off) and replug it (on) each and every time you want it running. Not something that I am really good at. I am looking to figure out where to get a +12v line that I can tap into to run the 0.3a usb power plug off of. I have read with Google search that some suggest running a fuse tap off #41 to power a relay to convert one of the front AUX 12v plugs into an ignition triggered plug. What does fuse #41 power? and could I just use a fuse tap to connect the 0.3a usb power plug directly to that line as I just need to power this one device? Any alternatives would be great.
Installing dual dash cams (front and rear facing) video
macbwt posted a topic in Accessories & ModificationsHey folks, I installed a second dash cam to my 2011 ford edge limited. I moved the old dash cam to the rear since the LED screen was no longer working, but still records great. I then installed the new dash cam in the front. Pretty easy to do and provides you with a lot more security in the long run and helps you defend yourself in the event of any issues such as accidents etc. I have recorded my deer collision using the dash cam. I will put both videos in this post to see what they can do for you. Enjoy.
