Rear facing dashcam

Hi.
Where can I find a live feed at the rear of my 2013 Panda 4x4 to power a video cam please?

Usually hook up to the reverse light wire.

Re: Rear facing dashcam

if your car has an active aerial. Pretty sure its live with the ignition. But can check before you lower the headlining if you want to go this route


cars without active aerials still have the cable but dont know if its live.

Re: Rear facing dashcam

Some models have a boot (trunk) light on the left. The wires are probably there and might be live. Alternatively fish some stiff wire under the carpet to the cigar lighter area and pull some wire though to power the camera. You will need to remove the rear seat base but the bolts are simple enough to remove/replace.
