Hi experts and enthusiasts,
After 4 hit and run accidents where the violator ran away, including one today where my 2006 Ody would have almost been T-Boned, instead the other car clipped my bumper from side on passenger side, I am looking to install a 2 channel Dashcam Vivo A129 Duo.
As this Dashcam has parking mode detection as well, I need help wiring it from one of the two interior fuse boxes using this kit that supports this dashcam and is needed to enable parking mode
I have seen a video here on the forum where someone installed another dashcame using some USB adaptor powering it from map lights, but that was for a 2018, so not sure if that will be possible for a 2006 Ody.
I pulled a fuse out to see what kind it is and it looks like the ATM which I have seen some places call it as a Mini. Could someone please confirm if that is correct.
From the Hardwire kit, looks like the Red wire needs Power, Black is Ground and Yellow is ACC.
So do I need to get two fuse taps and find a so called Hot fuse to tap the Red wire into and an ACC fuse to tap the Yellow into and some metal screw attached to the body to put the Black ground ?
I see there are some unused fuses on the Interior Driver side : 1, 8, 15, 17, 33
Passenger Side : 2, 5
but not sure if they have any power, need to test with a Volt meter, unless others here have same model and can advise.
Also, how do I locate a fuse that has power even when ignition is turned off and keys removed ? I can see non-critical Driver side fuse 14 for Power Seat Slide or 16 for Driver Power Seat Recline have power when key is not in, is that considered a hot ?
I could then use fuse 9 in this same driver side fuse box which is for front Accessory socket.
