How to connect the ceiling?

Every motorist who installed a DVR in his car probably wondered more than once how to get rid of the wires and the ever-occupied cigarette lighter socket. This can be done quite simply; it is enough to connect the DVR to the car’s electrical system through the courtesy light located in the cabin. To perform this procedure, you will need to purchase a converter from 12V to 5V for cars.

How to connect the DVR to the ceiling through the converter?

  1. To begin, remove the decorative cover of the ceiling, unscrew the fasteners and pull it out in order to get direct access to the wires;
  2. Further, using a voltmeter, we find wires that supply 12 volts both with the door open and with the door closed;
  3. We disassemble the converter and pull out two wires from it for power supply (they must be connected to the cigarette lighter connector on the converter);
  4. Now these wires must be connected to the wiring leading to the ceiling (do not forget to observe the polarity);
  5. Connect the cable from the DVR to the USB output of the converter and test its operation;
  6. Next, you need to connect the ceiling and install it in its place, hiding under the casing wiring and converter.
