Help with Wireless Reverse Camera Receiver

Postby Goonman1 » Sat Apr 22, 2017 10:59 pm

So I had a few questions about a reverse camera transmitter/receiver (wireless ones).

Which are the reverse lights in the boot (i.e. what colour)?
Where should I connect the receiver for it to get power?

For the receiver in the front you will need to find the reverse wire in the main harness at the front of the car. Also that wire will need to be hooked up to the dvd player to trigger the camera to come up on the screen when it goes into reverse.

Not used the wireless ones before, but I'd say the one with the power leads needs to be at the back of the car, hooked into the reverse light so when you put it in reverse it turns on to send a signal to the HU receiver.

It will be interesting to see if this setup is any easier than the wired ones, I know my biggest issue was getting the back seat out to run the wires, but I got help from an expert to hook it up after I'd pre-run the wire to the back.

You would or should have the cover in the boot off.
turn on the engine, engage reverse, turn off the engine, then turn the switch to the on position,
make sure the engine isn't running for safety sake. Walk around the back and check the wires coming from the
light that is turned on.

PS Without checking I do believe you would have to turn your lights on, the wires your looking for are the ones from the white light.
