Default Need circuit to connect drive camera

I have a camera to video while I am driving, but it currently is just plugged in to the cigarette lighter but I need to to be connected to a switched circuit so it is only on when the car is on. Could someone help me locate a switched circuit that I can tap in to and where to find it.
I have a 2001 Saturn ls2 no sunroof

Thanks very much,
Bruce

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Are you aware of posting in the L-series tech forums where you might be best served posting in the S-series tech forums?

If you are familiar with car wiring, I would suggest probing the instrument panel fuse block for a switched (fused) line; 25A wiper, 10A radio, 10A Ign-3, HVAC 15A, Ign-1 10A, Turn 10A, Cruise 10A, CD 5A. I would use a T-pin or push pin to pierce wire insulation and probe for the switched side of each line to find the one you're interested in tapping in to. To know which side is fused, pull the fuse. Its presumed your camera draws less than 1-amp and won't overload any circuit?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
