TAPPING INTO IGNITION CIRCUIT FOR DVR INSTALL

Ford Excursion

Hi ya'll

I feel pretty stupid asking this. And this is kinda a strange question. We are installing a Digital Video Recorder into my 2005 Ford Excursion to record video incase of an accident for evidence purposes.

Basically, I need to know where is the correct place I should tap into the " vechicle power supply"?

and where the ignition switch sensor line is located to trigger the unit to power on or off.

Note: the unit can be programmed to power-off X ammount of minutes after the ignition is switched off.

Recommend wiring it on it's own circuit with a fuse link in line to the power directly to the battery with and toggle switch. Half the wiring problems occur after someone has either tried to or removed this type of equipment
