Ford Fiesta 2017 (New Shape) Dashcam Cigarette Lighter Power in When is OFF

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just come to notice that my dashcam in my car is always running for at least an hour after I have left the car.

It is connected to the cigarette lighter port?

Is this normal

My Mk8 is the same so I presume so!

Yes, it's normal.  I decided to have mine hardwired when I found out the socket stays live.

Thanks for confirming.

Will try to tinker with it and carry out more testing.

So it records for an extra hour when ignition is off and car is locked

I think the manual says, for the MK8, the socket stays live for 45 mins after turning off the ignition.
