Have continued my research into a solar charger for my 2019 model E Pace petrol.I
As the 12_volt socket is not "live" I need an OBD connector.
Can can anyone e tell me how to find the socket and when connected will it interfere with anything else tech wise.

Thanks Den.

Hi den, OBD connector is alongside centre console, just as knee roll finishes, (assuming car is RHD) you can see it if you crouch down and look just past brake pedal, I don't know if it will have live feed when car is in sleep mode, Tony

Hi
I wouldn't be messing around with the OBD port to charging the battery.
If you are using a solar charger specifically designed to charge a 12V car battery then it is best connected directly to the battery. It should have a fused so that it cannot short the battery if the wires get damaged or the charging circuit developes a fault.
Cheers
John
