Did you use an electrical tester to check for constant on and a switchable power source?
Yep. I then tested the back side of the fuse as well to confirm they showed power.Did you use an electrical tester to check for constant on and a switchable power source?
It was included with the camera setup I purchased.Where did you get the hardwire kit from?
I had the video running as I was installing mineNot sure if this would help
Well shit! I hope it works out Bryan.Well it occurred to me this afternoon that I did get a cigarette lighter cord that I could use to power it as an alternative. I figure that at least I could use it in that fashion until I figure out what the issue is with the wiring (cause its got to be MY issues, right?).
Well, lo and behold, not only does it STILL not work when I plug it in via the lighter, I also tried to plug it into the lighter connection in my wife's Highlander.....and it STILL doesn't work at all! So since this experiment, I have called customer service of Blackvue.
The bad news is I have now dropped over $650 on a camera system that is already out of warranty despite that I've only tried to install it since yesterday (but I acknowledge that I purchased it back in Jan of 2022). At this point after talking to support they are suppose to be sending me an email going over my options (which I have no doubt will only ADD to the money I've spent thus far since I never got the impression this would be swapped out or discounted in any way, shape, or form. Though hopefully the email will prove me wrong despite my complete doubts).
Anyway, that's the update at this point unfortunately
Yeah, it sucks but I can’t really blame Blackvue for standing by the one year warranty. I know I’m honest to a fault, but I’ve no doubt people have gotten away scamming them or ripping them off so I can’t fault them at all despite literally never touching it or trying to install it until yesterday.Well shit! I hope it works out Bryan.
Bring it with you to ShelbyFest.Yeah, it sucks but I can’t really blame Blackvue for standing by the one year warranty.

From what I read of the options in the email sent to me, it looks like it will cost a minimum of $90 up to a maximum of $120to fix or replace whatever is bad.
It is what it is I guess.
I would appreciate any insight you might have Tim, so yeah I’ll definitely bring it, but I don’t want it (or me) being any sort of imposition. If time allows it, great. But no biggie if not either.Bring it with you to ShelbyFest.
Hopefully they have a quick turn around for you. I look forward to your updates. I have been running inexpensive cameras in all my vehicles, but have been wanting to get this same set up. At least for my Shelby if not my daily as well.
Hope all goes well for you.
