Fuse box in the interior for dashcam?

Does anyone know is there a fuse box in the interior? I have a 2018 model and canít find one anywhere. Really want to hardwire a dashcam. Do I have to run the wire to the engine fuse box? Canít find a single video on YouTube. Do compass drivers just not use dashcams? I did try removing the plastic on the side of drivers side and nothing there. So odd.

I am also interested. I ended up plugging my dash cam and 2M radio (always set to low power) into a cigarette lighter adapter.

If there is a source of 12VDC in the cabin, I would like to know where it is.

No inside fuse panel. It is easy enough to add a fuse tap into an ACC circuit and run the wire to the interior to use for your dash cam.

You can hardly see it and it's a pain to get to. I think someone on this forum already posted info on getting to it.

remove screws on the knee panel under the steering wheel, the entire thing. Pop the cover off the side between the dash and the door, remove these screws also. Pull the knee panel off and hope you have small hands...

It's ridiculous, but it is inside the car... just buried far enough to make most people pay the dealership just to change a fuse.

That's exactly what I did.

I ran the wiring across the top of the windshield and down the doorpost, in behind the glove box and down into the 12 volt adapter in the console.

Took about 3 minutes to hook up!

You could always splice into a live wire under the dash. The camera power cord (at least the one I have) is already fused

Simple is best...I used ODB connector for power supply.
