Lol you may as well be speaking French. Are there connections I can crimp onto the wires to connect to a fuse tap?
Yes. Butt connectors. If you have the hardwire kit for parking mode then you also need to make a connection to a permanent live as well as a ign switched live. You could do both with a fuse tap.Lol you may as well be speaking French. Are there connections I can crimp onto the wires to connect to a fuse tap?
The way you plug the tap into the fuse box matters. You need to check with a probe or meter to see which side of the fuse socket in the fuse box is live and turn the tap the right way around. If you plug it in the wrong way around you end up with a fuse which is bypassed and won't blow when needed. I think a lot of DIYers completely miss this because they plug in the tap either way around and the device still works fine.
Yes, you're totally right, I explained it wrong. Its impossible for the current to get to the add on device without going through a fuse. But if you have it in wrong way around, the current to both devices all goes through one fuse. I'll go back and edit that post because its completely wrong.Far from my strong point but from what I could make out from my limited experience using these on my own cars, I thought it needed to be a certain way round to stop you running the circuit in series instead of parallel. Stops you overloading the first fuse. Both circuits should be fused though no matter what way you plug it in. Happy to be corrected though as I run a few of these in the cars for various things!
Thats crazy! Glad I got sorted with my cameras yesterday with plonkers like that on the road!
If anyone needs a camera fitted in the Bangor area, Ollie installed both front and back cameras for me and did a top job!
It's an absolute incident hotspot, seen cars flipped, kids hit, cars sat sideways on the rails etc. They really need to reconfigure that 50 yards of road. Bring the 30 zone in earlier too.Over the years I’ve seen some mad things on that stretch of ring road from bloomfields to the Springfield flyover.
