Thank you @Avel Du
. I found several good grounding points in the engine bay area, but I do not know how to feed ny wire to the engine bay from the interior.
So, before I continue, I will tell you guys what kind of hardwire kit I am using:
I am sorry, I am away from my PC, so I just use my phone to do this post. I purchased the hardwire kit above from Amazon:
I decided to cut the end of the wire and follow the post by @savcom
to power my rear view mirror dash cam DVR:
This is how I power my camera following @savcom
The hardwire kit for the camera comes with a 5A fuse to the positive end. This makes the camera turn off by itself when we turn of the car?s ignition. Since I cut the fuse to connect it with the dome light power, now I have to manually turn off the dash cam eveytime I parked the car. Not a big deal for me ?
Now that I have another question, not related to a grounding issue, but still related to project I?m currently working on. I want to power up backing camera which also a part of my dash cam system. The manual said that I have to power the backing camera by tapping to reverse light so that everytime we put the gear on reverse, it will automatically shows the rear parking guidelines.
I found where is the location of the reverse light and it?s power cable. It basically has similar power cable like the dome light, with 6 pin connector.
The problem is, I am not sure which one is the positive cable.
I tested the pin no 6, the brown cable, it is the negative one. The multimeter showed 12.xx Volt reading. I did this by tapping the black probe of the multimeter to the broown cable pin, while I tap the red probe of the multimeter to the positive end of the car?s battery.
I tried the other way to find the positive cable of the reverse light, which should be the remaining pins other that pin no 6. Black probe of the multimeter to the negative end of the car?s battery, and the red probe to the rest of the pins.
Now the problem is, none of them showing voltage reading on the multimeter.
Can someone please educate me?
Probaly @Avel Du
