Dash-Cam Wire

Question

2005 Gen-7

 

I now have a dash-cam :)

 

It will be positioned behind the rear view mirror.

 

Is there a way I can provide power to it without cables across the dash and up the screen?

 

I was thinking of splicing off the fag lighter wiring and some way running the cam power cable to just behind the mirror but keeping it hidden.

Is this possible and how would I go about this as I do not want to be pulling the trim apart to much or getting close to the air bag.

 

The other thought was to splice the cam power cable in to the sunroof power feed, I assume this is easily accessible by simple removing the cabin light.

I would then simply pit a small hole in the roof lining to feed the cable through.

Can this be done?

 

Tiddles.

I did the same, roof lining you can finger poke the wire all the way to the pillar. The pillar just pulls off, so easy to put the wire behind. easy enough to route it to the centre console with the glovebox out. and splice it behind the cigarette lighter. No wires on show and starts recording when starting the engine

20 min job bud. I spliced into the cig lighter and ran cable behind dash, up the a Piller and above the roof lining. No need to drill any holes. The only tools you need are for splicing into the wiring.
