Re: How to: Connect Factory Back up Camera to Aftermarket Head Unit

The reverse signal for the factory camera. Would that be the camera return wire? Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - Audio system pinouts
I'm going to be installing a pioneer Z130 BT soon and want to retain factory back up camera in my 07 WK and would hate to have to run a new wire to the rear if there's other ways.

Parts needed:
RCA plugs
Wire (I used 18ga)
Quick Splice Connectors
and I used some heat shrink just for the hell of it.



Connect 2 wires to the RCA plug. One is signal the other is ground. At this point I threw some heat shrink to hold the wires.





Don't forget to make sure nothing is grounding out.


And the finished product.



Onto the Jeep

Once you have your radio removed look for a 22 pin connector with only 3 wires attached. (this will NOT be the case if you have stock rear entertainment system.) Using your quick splices, connect the signal wire (RCA's center pin) to the Green and black wire shown.



then connect the RCA shield to the Green and Orange wire.



As you can see in the the picture I connected to the wrong wire first then fixed it. That is what the electrical tape is for.

You can now Plug the RCA into the back of your head unit.

Now you need to run a wire from the back up camera connector on the tail gate to your head units reverse wire. as you can see from the next few pictures. I ran it from the Back through the head liner down the A pillar under the dash to the Head unit.








In the back here is what it is connected to.





And the final product after everything is installed.




A few pointers have a friend with you trying to get the tailgate cover on and off was a b*tch by myself.

AND DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS THE DAY AFTER A TROPICAL STORM HITS YOUR AREA I WAS STUCK INSIDE MY TRUNK FOR AN HOUR DURING A REALLY BAD DOWNPOUR AND COULD NOT MOVE TO THE FRONT DO TO THE TAIL GATE COVER BEING IN THE WAY AND I DID NOT WANT TO BREAK IT

I hope this helps out anyone who was looking for this answer.
Hello, thanks for this post. i had made the RCA jack connector and the part i was missing was the wire from the rear camera to the Reverse signal input. Question, to what wire did you hook the black wire in the back? A green/white wire?
