Reverse Camera
 
Hey all,

I have a question hopefully someone can answer for me. (I'm thinking Matt our Audio expert might know :thumbsup: )I have a Pioneer Avic-x910BT head unit and i'm about to finally install a reverse camera. When i first installed the radio i never spliced in the speed sensor or the reverse wire (for activating the reverse camera). I figured i would have to run something from the reverse lights to trigger this but i'm wondering if there is something behind the dash that i could just tap into? As far as the speed sensor is concerned, can anyone tell me where i can find that wire? (2005 3.7 Laredo)

Thanks!

Thanks but i don't think that is the answer i was looking for.. i need to know which wire to tap into to receive the needed signals. I don't need any new physical wires i already have all the parts..

didnt you use a big interface harness to make the AVIC work. or did you manually tap wires???

I ask becasue my PAC harness for my F90BT had all them wires called out. so if you used something like tht I think it would have those wires already marked.

but if you just are tapping intoi the factory harnesses
wkjeeps has all the pinouts for the factory sound system.
I think that will show you wires on the factory side......

Thanks Rob, i did use a harness but there is no speed sensor or camera pin outs on my harness (05 WK without a stock camera). And i know the speed sensor wire isn't in the stereo harness =). Has anyone ran into this same dilemma i am in? I know he wires are around somewhere ...i'll probably just need a wiring diagram to locate which harness they are in under the dash..

Anyone have a copy of the service manual with a wiring diagram of some sort that could help me out?

It's the white/lt green wire located in the main harness bundle in the driver's side kick. There's about 40 or more wires in there but only 1 that matches that color combo. If you have a multimeter you can check that it shows 12volts when in reverse, and nothing any other time. That's what i used to tie into my dvd deck.

I just ran a wire back and picked up 12v from the reverse bulb. took me all of five 20 minutes goin under the panels. I have a f900bt and hate the thing......very quirky. I still have to by pass it so I can play dvds......4 my passengers ofcourse!!
