01 v70 continuous charging power?

Post by CIK7 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 7:16 pm

Hello yall! When I had my 09 impala, I kept dashcams in my char as well as a phone charger. These devices continued to get power even after engine shut off. With this V70, i am unable to keep any of my devices powered with the engine off. I need the cameras to be rolling in case of an accident or some event. Do yall know of a method to deliver continous power?

You will probably have to pull wire from terminal 15 on the fuse box to a connector under the dash.

Can you please specify, possibly take a picture? How would I make it work exactly?

The one in the trunk or the backseat? It seems all the trims higher than the base level have the trunk one. I dont have that. I only have 1 up front and 1 in backseat

The one all the way back, not the one for the backseat passengers. The battery itself is back there too if you want to run a wire. Make sure it has a FUSE!

Is there a way to rewire both the front and backseat 12v so it will stay on always?

Sure. Figure out where the wires run for the front outlets and rewire them straight to the battery. I have never seen a DIY on that, but maybe someone has one.

Thank you. I am going to try to take it all apart and track the wiring.
