    I know this sounds like a stupid question for me to ask, but where is fuse box #3? 1 and 2 are easy to find but for the life of me I've never been able to find #3. Is it hidden under something or am I just blind? A photo would be very helpful. I'm sure it's staring me in the face.

    Man artsci, if you can't find it after all the mods and work you done, I have no chance whatsoever!

    You've probably already looked in the MS Owners manual on page 7.19, but in case you haven't this might help?

    I hope it is okay to include this excerpt from the manual (that is available online at Teslas homepage), if not I will remove it.

    Stupid me. I meant fuse box 1. I know where fuse box 3 is, just confused the two. It's actually fuse 75 in #3 that I want to tap for the camera switch, and that will be easy.

    #1 is well buried behind the diagonal support. I can post a picture if you like. My car came with it exposed so I'm not sure what you have to pull to access it but I'm guessing the cabin filter and holder above the 12V battery.

    No problem, I've taken a couple for you. It's centered in both pics, the second pic also shows box #2 on the lower right. I found it hard to reach in there when probing voltages.
