Thumbs down Reverse Camera Mod

Hey all! I haven't seen anything on here about this and its cheap and easy to do. Obviously you need a double din or flip up stereo. This is pretty self explanatory and doesn't need a writeup i would assume. Just figured i would show you all what i did and how it looks.



I ordered this camera here 170 Mini Anti Fog Glass Car Rear View Reverse Backup Waterproof CMOS Camera | eBay
(hope link doesn't break)
I think it took like 3 or 4 weeks to receive BUT it was only like $14.

All i had to do was take out the trunk lock cylinder, then the camera was an exact fit in the hole.
Wire it up to your stereo, and power it from the reverse light and bingo bango you have a damn good looking reverse camera! Have a look and tell me what you think!

Nice, but my luck someone would try to open the trunk with the key and mess it up.

It should as long as it has a hookup for reverse camera.
To power it, i just used the driver side reverse light for the + and i also used the light for the interrupt. All that is is a wire that goes to the back of the radio to the 'reverse' wire. It acts like a remote wire and once light turns on in reverse, the radio automatically switches the the camera screen. You can also hook it up to be manual i suppose. Just run the power off a switched 12v source and run the interrupt to the same source but break the + with a simple switch. Flip the switch and the stereo goes to camera mode whenever you want. Only other wire is the video. :beer:

Its very proportional to the car though. I get nervous just using that to backup, but the sides lineup and the red line on the screen is ~5 feet away.

Re: Reverse Camera Mod

You have 4 wires total. The video line from camera to radio, the signal line from the + or reverse light to back of radio, the + of reverse light to the camera and ground to camera as well. Pretty easy once you see it in front of you

Re: Reverse Camera Mod

Went under the steering column then under the trim. Under the back seat then into the trunk and up to where the camera is. I just hid them and made sure they wouldn't get in he way when i closed the trunk.
