I saw this video, and was wondering if anyone has been able to successfully hook up a dashcam (i.e. BlackVue) to tap into the yellow domelight wire to get constant 12v power.... and confirm that this will not hurt the battery?
Yes the yellow and black wire in the dome light. Used t-tap to tap into the wires. The cable goes in the dome assembly and comes out of the other side of headliner very nicely. Used a zip tie to fish it.Nice thanks. So did you connect directly into the yellow wire, like the video shows? I think other methods have caused Battery errors after a few months.
Yes. I cut the BlackVue cigarette adapter wire and tap into yellow and black in the dome light, no where else.@outie -
Is this the only area you used (yellow and black wires under the dome light) to hook up your dashcam?
Only reason why i'm asking is because I'm seeing all these other threads in different locations (under the footwell area, side of dash, etc) that people are tapping into...which seems much much more complicated. Just wanted to make sure...thx again
You linked to the video I used in the first post of this page. It’s really obvious what you need to do after opening it up. Just shoot over any question you have after you open it.Thanks @outie and @JPP for your info.
I am fairly confident on the hookup process, BUT does anyone know if there is a video (or photos) already out there showing the steps (i.e. has someone already made a tutorial on this?).... it would be very helpful for people to make sure they are doing the correct steps.
I did some searches, but only able to find video tutorials of tapping into the other 12v areas in the car, and not the dome light.
