Dash cam hard wire

I bought a dash cam for my 2013 Countryman and installed it last week. The problem is it won’t turn off. The hard wire kit had a ground wire and a wire attached to a 15A fuse. I have tried all of the 15A slots and it will stay on overnight. I make sure that my key and phone are no where near it when I check on it. What fuse spots are switched and which are constant? Does it matter that the fuse does not push in all the way? I have attached a picture of my fuse box key. It says F37 is blank but there is a fuse in the slot.

I have a hard wire kit with a sensor which monitors the battery and my dash cam will turn on if the car is jostled or hit. My problem is this, I cannot find a place near the fuse panel where I can attached the ground wire. Any help is appreciated. This is the kit I bought. https://amzn.to/2NzFVPA

Not sure what year your car is but on my 2013 countryman there is a bolt just below the fuse box you can use. The issue is, it is hidden behind the plastic panel piece. So you have to pull that off to get to it. I used that bolt to ground my dash cam.
