The Auto Stop eliminator is totally worth installing:

That should kill 2 birds with one stone for ya: your dash cam functions properly and you don't have to deal with the auto start/stop gimmick.

I had my dash cam installed by a professional. Burned up my in dash brake controller when they used the controller for a power source. Just a warning what not to do.

I used the interior fuses also. I used a meter to see which fuse would give me power when the ignition key was turned on.

I don't recall which fuse it was though.

I wired in my BlackVue 900 today... but the Power Magic Pro is causing me some issues... I have done everything exactly as the directions and my research has suggested.
Here's my problem, I can't get a good ground connection. I know that the bolts that I'm trying are good grounds, but my Power Magic Pro doesn't seem to want to function.
If I rub the ground wire on the stud, then the light on the Power Magic Pro will flicker. When I clamp it down I'm getting nothing.
Something is obviously not right and I don't have anymore ideas on what to do. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
