I am looking to hard wire this monitor to my 2012 c3 (see picture) and was wondering the best way. Am I right in thinking I can splice the wire to the cigarette lighter or use an added fuse connection to connect to the appropriate fuse? Any help would be grateful. Thanks

yes, this is exactly what I would do. Splice into the cigarette lighter with some scotch locks and an inline fuse holder, all linked with some crimps.



You also have the option to wire to the reversing lights, so its only powered up when reverse is selected, it depends on what the instructions suggest.

Thanx.
It is a wireless system so the camera will be connected to the reversing light then the transmitter and the receiver hard wired which will then attach to the monitor.
In theory lol
