That is correct Marc, however the fuses do not appear to go off and stay live even after a while.. with the car locked! So fuse taps are useless! Only way seems to be patching into existing known ignition on cables as mentioned..

I found that the fuses are ok, but the source at the equipment termination are the issue. I.e. if you used a 12V power lead from the dash cam that they often supply as an option, then it would work with engine running and again with ignition off - after an undetermined time - The actual time will depend on the energy management determination. So if battery is not healthy or fully charged, then it could switch off the 12 V socket after 5 minutes - or 30 minutes if in a good state.

I think I used my electric mirrror fuse on one of the BSI fuse boards for my dash cam project. This is switched live and suited my needs.

Try Heated Seats (F2), Folding Mirrors Relay (F4) in the passenger compartment Fuse Box, or:

Thanks for the heads up I will check them - can I ask where the passenger compartment fuse box is hidden? Th user manual isnt exactly specific in the locations :)

Hi Steve it should exist in the same vicinity as the BSI - But the electrical data on the B9 Utility Vehicle is shockingly poor. Each of the Berlingo variants are completely different, which adds to the confusion unfortunately. Sorry I can't be of more help with the fuses - but it may be 'plugged' in somewhere like a connector from the looks of it... :?:
