    I'm in the process of hooking up my Blackvue dashcam to the constant power source. I'm in the EU so the intrusion module is there and connected under the mic grille. I don't want to tap into the wires with Pozi-taps or similar so I need to fabricate a small cable which lets me get the power for the dashcam but also keep the module powered.

    Apparently this is the female part for the connector (from teslatap.com): 3-968696-2 TE Connectivity | Mouser Finland

    But where can I find another male connector? Does anyone know the OEM part number for it?

    Thanks for your help!

    OK, just learned that the male connector is a restricted item from the manufacturer and thus cannot be ordered. Looks like I'm going to go the OBD port route. Can anyone recommend a good OBD port power cable?

    Dash cam install on my '17 model S. It doesn't run off 12v so I soldered on a voltage regulator and stepped it down to 5v. But now it's neatly installed and nice and clean. PS.. black is ground and red with the black stripe is the 12v + on the chassis harness.

    I bought this for the plug...
