Hey all, I just recently got my '16 ST3. In my last car (2010 Pontiac Vibe GT) I had a dash cam hardwired to the fuse box in the footwell. I transferred the camera to the ST and found a switched fuse (F57 I believe, the one with the 5A spare). I put the constant +12V wire (for parking mode) on the Cigarette Lighter fuse because it seemed that the DC power point always had power, but getting in the car today I noticed that the port only comes on when the doors are unlocked. So now I'm in search for another fuse to tap in the Passenger fuse box for constant +12V. Any help would be appreciated!

yes the power ports shut off after the BCM falls asleep after a few minutes

just strip back and tap into the main power feed wires for the BCM/fuse box, either the large red or yellow wires in the two pin connector at the top middle.

Forgot to update the thread, I did end up using the luggage compartment fuse #65 after messaging with someone on the FoST subreddit. Everything is all set now!
