Messing with electrics in a new electric car kinda makes me pause. So I turn to you.

I have a new Rexing dashcam and it’s hardwire installation kit. Easier enough to hide the cables along the edge of the car but then it requires installation into the fuse box. There is no fuse box, well there isn’t one where it is normally that I can see (drivers side under main control Centre)... so any advice? This is relevant to any one trying to hardwire an external device and not have the wires trailing across the car to the 12v outlet?

Thanks

So we’re basically talking outside of the car. That’s not going to work or isn’t worth the cost of getting it done. My work around is to use one of the USBs in the centre console and buy a USB A Male to 12V Car Cigarette Lighter Socket Female Converter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J67JIOQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_A.ReCb7B9411K and store in the glove compartment to hide excess wire and power 3rd party dash devices.. see if that works soon

Look at the manual. There a five fuse boxes including one under the back seat and one in the trunk of the car.

Good to know but still hard to wire dashcam that far and maintain a good look

Also I tried the manual wasn’t exactly clear.. perhaps I should use the digital version as you can key word search it 🙂

I had front and rear cameras installed as well as my radar detector hard wired and a NoPhoto license plate installed last week in my I Pace. The installer had no issues at all and it cost me less than $500 CDN. Everything is well hidden and not visible. The only issue he had was the tailgate is one piece that doesn't come apart and my rear camera hangs from the rear frame rather than the lift gate.

Can you post a picture of the rear camera please?

If you haven't already, fix that grommet that goes into the body from the tailgate harness bellows, passenger side.

Hard wired a radar detector today. Used the passenger rear seat fuse box, fuse # F12 is on a delayed switch relay. I used this cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BLL71YK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 from Amazon but had to extend the ground a bit. Mounting was in the driver lower left windshield to allow access to volume and muting for my Escort Max II. Then ran the wire down the door frame and in between the carpet and plastic panel until at the rear seat and into the fuse box area. The screw holding the fuse box harness is a grounding point.

You pull the fuse from F12, insert into the new harness slot (one of the three is compatible with the fuse box), then it gives you an easy tap on the fuse box (note the fuses are both 5A, thus compatible.)
