    After several near misses in reversing in my 2006 Peugeot Boxer 2.2 Eldis Sunseeker - I am fitting an always on Reversing Camera and need to connect to a power source somewhere behind the dashboard.

    Any suggestions as to how you can get to behind the main console of the dashboard - as I have to fit to a positive power source that switches on and off with the Ignition.

    Is this a DIY task or should I get an expert in ??:thumb:

    Cant you pick one up from the fuse panel?

    On the fiat there spare positions that you can connect to by removing the cover I would think the peugeot would be similar

    The fiat fuses are behind a removable panel below the right hand side of the steering wheel

    Tale your power from the orange wire on the ignition switch and fit an inline fuse 2amp should be fine. Orange wire is ignition switched so the camera will only be pwered when ignition is switched on.

    I replaced the radio in my X250 and wired it to the leisure battery which left the IGN+ free behind the radio which now feeds the camera.
