I ran the live for a reversing camera to the light above the back doors. The camera worked beautifully, but because the light is always live the camera drained the battery over the course of a weekend.
I need therefore to run the live to one of the fuses under the dash or, if it’s easier, to a fuse in the engine compartment so I only get power to the camera when the ignition is on.
I have never taken interior panels off before so would welcome some help/advice in doing so.
Hoping we have that talent in the Shed 🙂
I got help today (Sunday) from Roy. We ran the wires under panels and carpet and came up underneath the dashboard. Roy popped the radio out and we soldered the live and earth (those two should be equal length or the camera can give decidedly bad images – according to the installation docs for the camera) onto the appropriate wires from the radio plugs.
