I really don't want to mess this up, and local installation companies are quoting me between $150-$300 for the install. For that price I am willing to learn to do it myself.

I numbered both my main questions for clarity:

1. Which two fuses would I want to hook up the wiring kit to?

Here is a link to the fuse box diagram: https://fuse-box.info/toyota/toyota-yaris-vitz-belta-xp90-2005-2013-fuses-and-relay

I was thinking the #4 20A for the power window, or maybe one of the rear power window fuses for when the car is in operation, but I am not sure what to choose for the actual parking mode when the car is turned off.

2. Would I want to use a 5A fuse in conjunction with the fuse tap for the dashcam, or something lower?

Using the VIOFO HK3ACC Hardwire Kit for A129 and the dashcam is the A129 Duo.

I sincerly appreciate any help I can get on this.

I used to have a NCP93 RHD. For ACC/ignition detection line, I like to tap to:

- because the chances of it screwing up something else is low. At most your phone charger doesn't work?


For VCC/constant power you can try either one of these. I don't know why the details listed a bunch of computer related items? Normally they won't share fuse lines with tail lamps. So I'm guessing this page is listing as either/or information. The best way to confirm is poke a multimeter when the car is turned off to find which fuse has power. For the RHD NCP93, tail lamps and license place lamps stay on indefinitely when engine is off, so it's a good spot to tap to.

If a 5A fuse is the smallest you can get hold of, then you'll just have to use it. If you can get hold of 2/2.5A fuse, it would be better. HK3 supplies ~10 watts maximum, given some conversion inefficiencies it should not go over 12v x 1.3A = ~15 watts. So yea 2/2.5A is a good cut off value. But over here those fuse sizes are mythical, so 5A is the next lowest available.
