Thinkware Dashcam Draining Battery
I have a thinkware F70 that is hardwired.
My car battery would drain to 40% or lower overnight after charging the car battery to full. I have parking mode on the dashcam off. I even measured the current on the dashcam, and it reads zero when the engine is off. So I did a test.....I unplugged the power cable from the dashcam last night after charging the car battery. This morning the battery was at 85% and at 12.6V. I did the same test a few days ago and got the same results.
The two wires going to the switched and constant on fuses are correct because if I switch them around, the parking mode does not work, or if the parking mode is off, you do not hear the chime when the dashcam turns off....it just turns off.
Did anyone else come across this issue before? Is it a bad dashcam? I'm really stumped.
