All you need is a 12v feed which is only on when in reverse etc. As the camera is usually located at the rear the easiest and shortest route is to use the reverse lights feed, just pull the left tail light out and tap into the reverse light.To activate the reverse camera I have to hook up the reverse light switch.
Question is..... how do I find that? Mines an automatic so can I access it from underneath the car or maybe via the shift lever tunnel from inside the cab?
Im sure someone on here can dig up a link to a wiring diagram for a newre model GU.The Kenwood unit says to tap into the reverse light switch on the gearbox. This makes more sense because the head unit is mounted above the transmission tunnel also.
I only want the camera to work when I'm in reverse...not when going forward or when my lights are on.
Can I access the reverse switch just by removing the plastic gear stick surround from inside the cabin? Or do I have to crawl underneath?
