Default Dash cam install

Hi,

I have hard wired a dash cam into the car today. Nextbase camera and hardware kit. All went well, I found a fuse that seemed to be energised when the ignition came on then went off after a minute or so when turning the ignition off, so piggy backed to that.

However I have noticed that when the doors are unlocked the dash cam came on, does any one else who has a hard wired dash cam into the fuse box behave the same?

If not could you let me know what fuse you piggybacked to?

Car is 2015 GT

Thanks in advance.

Mine does the same (not for dash cam). If I unlock the car with my phone on charge I notice it starts to charge again if itís on USB or 12v. Itís like the car is doing some sort of pre-start up so itís ready.

Ah perfect, thank you for that. As I donít normally leave anything plugged in I wasnít aware it did that but sounds like normal behaviour!

Hi

I have a Nextbase dash cam and hardwire kit in my 2014 308 and the camera only comes on and off when the ignition key is turned. I installed mine as described by Paul Millard, type "2014 308 Dash Cam tidy install" into the search box and his article will appear with photo's. I used a piggy backed fuse connector to the second 10 amp fuse in the fuse box, as Paul suggests.
So far no problem with the installation.

It must be different for the keyless entry

Ah, that might be it. I was about to post that my dash cam, which is plugged into the 12v socket on the centre console. does not start up when I unlock the car. Our car has the key entry system.

Would make sense that the car powers up stuff when itís unlocked as I have noticed that the hand brake light on dashboard as well as the centre console light up as does the led on the gear indicator on the gear lever so would assume that keyless cars do operate differently to non keyless cars.

Thanks all for your replies!
