Does anyone know is there a fuse box in the interior? I have a 2018 model and can’t find one anywhere. Really want to hardwire a dashcam. Do I have to run the wire to the engine fuse box? Can’t 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.

Eugene2018. Many thanks for that but can you tell me a bit of where it is. Like under the radio screen you mean? Sorry just totally confused. Is it easy to get to?Any tools needed?

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
