I have gained access to the fuse box but cannot locate an ignition switched fuse to chip into for the dash cable.
I don't have the manual so need help locating the correct fuse.

Hi,

I have a 2012 B7 passat so can not say which fuse you need.

However I wired the power pack for my dash cam into an ignition live fuse and it works MOST of the time! However on ocassions the unit loses power which I believe is something to do with the canbus system on the car.

My daughter recently bought a new Seat Ibiza and the dealer stated that the power adaptor for the dash cam needed to be hard wired into the vehicle accessory circuit and the car then repogrammed to recognise it. This cost £100 plus VAT and works without issue.

A friend has spoken to our local VW dealer regarding fitting a dash cam into his Golf and was told the same and for a similar cost. I suspect that this will be the most reliable way with the Passat as well and is something that i will be looking to do in the New Year.
