Fitting dashcam

Post by Wykes123 » Sun May 02, 2021 4:33 pm

Need help fitting a nextbase dashcam. Using instructions I am using fuse 31 however no power goes through the cable to the dashcam even when ignition is on. Also when I remove the fuse the rear windscreen wiper still works. Any help?

Yes that's F31DA, i've not played around with permanently fitting a dashcam yet,is that the recommended fuse to use for one then ?
it shows as being fed from the retained accessory power relay

Normally I’d try and use the one for the cigarette lighter but it’s too far in for the hardwire kit to work and looking at other people they use this one for it. However it doesn’t seem to power my dashcam. The strange bit is I pulled that fuse out and the rear wiper still works

Are you looking for a permanent supply or a switched one ?
the wiper motor also has a main power feed (F48UA) from the wiper motor relay so it will still run.

Have you had a m/m to check there's power at the fuse and also exactly when it goes off ?
i need to check exactly when power is supposed to be supplied from the acc relay but it looks ok to me plus it's been recommended to use.
here's the wiring diag
