apologies in advance for resurrecting a dead thread


but that power tap location (to the left of fuse 7 [ 30A] ) is not switched accessory power ( or Ignition-on power) in my 2013 BRZ.... it is constant +12V even when car is switched off. Posting this in case someone does not want that wire energized at all times due to possible battery drain. For those who care, you can check your own car with a test light , 12V bulb, or volt meter.

Hmm. Was 100% accessory power in my old frs.
Brz box wired differently? Seems unlikely

Can confirm with invalid user, that fuse position provided power to my dashcam and radar detector and in the condition when accessory power was energized.

^^ Maybe different due to brand (unlikely)? or year (probably more likely)?

Best advice seems to be to test one's own car with ignition off, then with accessory switch on, to know for sure how a particular car responds.
