    If so, how did you do it?

    I bought one of the “Add a Circuit” kits on Amazon like i did with my 911. The kit came with 3 different fuse sizes, but none of them match the fuses in the Raptor.

    Is there an easy DIY workaround, or do I need to have someone who know what their doing do this for me?

    Thanks!

    Get a different add a circuit. Just goto Auto Zone or O’Reilly and find the right one.

    I did my window cam I think there are spare fuses in the fuse box if I remember correctly

    I used a Blendmount in addition to their rear view mirror wire tap. Easy, convenient, and reliable.

    Neither Autozone nor the dealer had one that would work. I can try O’Reilly.

    Mirror mount doesn’t work for me because it puts the detector too low and blocks my view of the right lane. I’m mounting it on a BuiltRight dash mount.

    Are the “spare” fuses live? If so, how do I know which are switched as opposed to always on?

    Thanks!
