What do you think went wrong here?
So I drive a 2012 Honda civic LX.
Over the weekend, I was attempting to hardwire in a new dashcam.
Plugged the fusetap into an empty circuit, and connected the ground to a bolt above the fuse box....maybe a bad idea...
Turned the key a half turn, and the dashcam was receiving power as expected.
BUT the car would no longer start!
The next day, I replaced the car battery and it ran again. Now I'm scared to plug back in the fusetap.
What do you guys think? Did I have a bad ground and somehow fried shit, lol, or did my battery just coincidentally die at the very moment I first tried my hand at wiring something? lol?
