car cam installation


Recommended Posts

i have a car cam that i used my old car, when the ignition was turned off so did the cam and that for me was great. Now on my 2010 fiesta the power is live all the time and i don't like that.

How would i get my cam to only switch on when ignition is on? at the moment I'm unplugging from the 12v accessory socket. read somewhere about a piggyback fuse to something that is not permanently powered?


any answers chaps?

I have a 2011 fiesta titanium and mine don't turn off,think its only the newer ones does as my mates focus on a 2014

plate turns off.

Easy to do,i got me a a loose power cigarette socket off eBay and piggy back fuse like on the link and put it into a fuse

that goes off with ignition,very cheap to do like £3 the lot.
