Having modified the end of the YouTube video to include footage of the modifications needed to get the mirror position right it now has a new URL:
I suspect that may be what happened to me. I was working on the car for at least 8 hours and for most of that time the door and tailgate were open so although I didn't connect it up until the end, there would have been other things draining the battery, The ODB power supply is 'always on' and although I think that I had turned it off, that may not have been the case. In particular, the Mirror has a time-out display that turns it off after between 1 and 3 minutes so I may have thought it was off. Since I don't often need the camera recording when I'm not driving I think I am going to connect to a power supply that goes off with the ignition and incorporate a switch that allows me to change between the 2.Topdown said:When I was working on prep for installing the Dashcam checking for fuses - doors open/ closed powering up and powering down for about 2 hours when I moved the car I got a traction battery fault proceed with caution. I notice that the 12v Battery was getting. 15v charge. After driving for 10mins this error was gone. I believe it is possible to deplete the 12v battery so when working on the car in future I will have the granny plugged in.
Interesting; I perhaps had a faulty ODB power supply. Also, my 12V battery doesn't appear to charge from the main traction battery unless I'm driving.IynCognito said:Haven't had any 12v battery issues. I have had the dashcam with the OBD power for about 9 months. Usually, I leave it on the ACC mode, which switches off 5 min after power down. However, it has been contantly on for like a week or so at a time when I have accidentally kicked the OBD switch. Only noticed it cause the screen was on all the time. Not caused any issues. I have noticed that if the 12v battery voltage starts to drop (seen on WattCat app) , it then automatically gets topped up by the traction battery.
How can be the Pormido hard wire kit voltage set t 12.1V?Topdown said:I have not installed mine yet and am going to use the Promido hard wire kit to the fuse box under the rear seat. The voltage cut off can be set to 12.1. The leads are a bit short and will need extending. Most of the time I will be able to select parking monitoring off and see how it goes. The 12 volt AGM battery also gets charged when the traction battery is being charged. You can see this on the app.
I got that voltage control kit and connected through the rear seat fuse box.Topdown said:The hardwire kit has a voltage control monitor that if the supply drops below 12.1v it cuts off the power. I would not use the small aux 15 Ah battery in the frunk. The promido you can turn off the parking monitor then it will not power up when the car is locked.
