2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT–Mods 07 & 09, 08/28

Given the events of last Wednesday, 08/24, I rewired my accent lighting and the Cellink Battery.

Details are in my comments Technology ~ DIY–Thinkware F770 Installation, 08/23 & 08/24 article. I took a few snaps tonight to show:

  1. where I moved the switch for control of the cargo area accent light [mod 07] from the car pocket to the right rear door near the floor–red toggle; and,IMG_1942.CR2
  2. the location of the LED power switch for the Cellink Battery for the Dash Cam [mod 09]. The red glow is my reminder that it is on. To record in the parking mode, it must be switched off.IMG_1944.CR2
