I have bought an in car front facing camera and was wondering if the interior light had the following connections.

 

Ground (I would have thought so)

 

Permanent live

 

ACC power.

 

Its just that I'm being lazy and can't be mithered to trace these things out :)

 

Push come to shove I could route it via the radio but would ideally like to keep the wires as short as possible.

 

Thanks.

You're better off tapping into the back of your 12 volt lighter socket.

Thanks for that.

 

The permanent live is for the clock in the camera and ACC power is ignition on.

Its a front facing camera that records my journeys and may be helpful in the event of an accident.
