When it comes to dash cam installation, the majority of our customers prefer to have their wirings hidden as much as possible. Not only is the visible wire distracting, but it can also attract thieves by indicating that you have valuable electronics in your vehicle.
The good news is that dashcam wiring can be easily covered up by tucking it into the trim, and routing it through the A Pillars. However, there is one concern that some may find alarming: the A Pillars, especially for newer vehicle models, contain one of your car's critical safety systems - the airbags.
Airbags consist of a cushion that inflates quickly in the event of a collision, positioned to keep passengers from being thrown against the vehicle's structure. While dash cams act as the eye in an accident, airbags do the work to save both driver and passenger from life-threatening impacts. Because of this, we always get questions from our customers: "Is it safe to run dash cam wires over my airbags?" Let’s find out.
