I want to install a rear dash camera. For this I need to tap into a rear wire harness that has either switched power, or constant power (so I can use power magic pro). I was considering tail lights. But these won't come on unless they are triggered or on. Any ideas?
Yes I know, the trunk light has a switch to turn it on anytime manually, so therefore it has your constant/always on 12v power. Then most dash cams turn on automatically with motion anyways so that would solve that issue.
The trunk light on my G2 comes on whenever the trunk is open. Is triggered by the latch acting as a switch. I thought of using that as a last resort. But I can imagine this being a huge pain to access and wire from? And also, I wouldn't be certain if both ground and live 12v was running through that anyways?
