  1. New car??

    How did you manage to interpret the VIN, I can't make head nor tail of it?
  2. New car??

    The law is on your side, specifically the 2015 Consumer Protection Act which states: Any product you buy should be of ‘satisfactory quality’ and in the case of a car you can reasonably expect it to: - Get you from A to B without breaking down - Work as expected without any faults - Be as described in any advert, brochure or order sheet If the car fails to meet one or more of those criteria and the dealer hasn’t been able to remedy it, you’re within your rights to reject it as being of unsatisfactory quality. Your rights were previously protected by the Sales of Goods Act but anything bought since October 2015 is covered by the Consumer Rights Act, which is subtly different and works a little more in your favour. If it goes wrong within the first 30 days of ownership, you can simply reject it out of hand for a full refund.
  3. Dash Cam Placement

    The penny has dropped, now I see the reason for the link. Well done you!
  4. Kadjar Minimum Power Requirements

    Thanks, but it's already on a timer in the guise of a voltage timer. My question was, at what voltage has the battery discharged sufficiently to NOT allow the car to start?
  5. Kadjar Minimum Power Requirements

    No, it's a Thinkware F770 2-channel hardwired model. Brilliant model, I've run some recorded videos on the computer and the quality is brilliant, clear as a bell!
  6. Kadjar Minimum Power Requirements

    Not really, it's just that you can leave it recording while the vehicle is parked whether at the supermarket or at home. You can define either continuous, time lapse or bump mode for recording, I guess the power used diminishes relative to the series. But I think you are right maybe 12V should be the minimum, I have it set at the moment at 12.3V. Thanks.
  7. Does anybody know the minimum power (VI) requirements to start the Kadjar? My Thinkware dash cam has a variable voltage cut off which when reached switches off the unit. The unit records even after the car is locked, but the failsafe switch is supposed to stop the voltage falling below a predefined level thus allowing the car to be started. Does anybody know that voltage?
  8. Dash Cam Placement

    Just thought I'd let you know that I chickened out in the end and got the dealer to fit the dash cam. They did a brilliant job, they placed it just where I wanted it and they routed the cable in through the plastic camera box on the windscreen and you don't see any sign of it until it reappears at the tailgate. Brilliant job! I did give it some serious thought, but the "what if's" started to surface! What if: the panels bend, the panels won't fit back in place or the airbags get activated.
  9. Thanks 1964, That certainly seems an easier option, probably better than trying to access roof lining with all the airbags etc........thanks!
  10. I have a bit of a problem, I'm not sure how to access the roof lining to feed the cable from the front of the car to the rear for the rear dash cam. There is a beading strip around the roof aperture, does anybody know if it's glued on or crimped and if it were removed would it allow access to the lining? Initially I was going to fit the Dash Cam myself but after speaking to several mechanics and a Renault Dealer, who was reluctant to install the device, I'm having second thoughts.
  11. Dash Cam Placement

    Thanks Tel58 that's brilliant! Just invested in a set of those panel levers, probably from the same auction site.
  12. Dash Cam Placement

    Meant to ask, is the black dot area some sort of sensor mesh? That is sensors. Had a look and yes she'll fit nicely where suggested! I'm going for the Thinkware F770 with front and rear cameras, since the wife's paying. That means I've got to feed cable to the rear of the car also.....should be fun!
  13. Dash Cam Placement

    Thanks William John, sounds good. I'll have a look at that today.
  14. My wife says she'll give me a dash cam for my Christmas, not a chance to miss! But where do I stick it? Maybe I should rephrase that in case someone suggests the obvious. Where is an ideal location on the windscreen to fit the dash cam. I've had a good look and the top centre of the windscreen is overloaded with reversing mirror and the inbuilt camera box. Quite a large section of the top centre windscreen has that black mesh type stuff, doubt if a camera would see through it with any clarity. I did wonder about on the dash itself but I'm not sure how that would work. Anybody out there got any practical advice or suggestions?
  15. Driving in Snow

    Thanks for the input and information folks. I just wondered whether like some of the old cars you needed to put a bag of sand in the back
