    Default back up camera wiring schematic

    I have purchased the backup camera (not the monitor) from Sparks Toyota and I plan on using it with my Alpine head unit which has backup camera capability. Can someone provide the schematic for the wiring from the Toyota camera in order to adapt/splice it to the Alpine? In other words, what color of wire does what and or connects to.
    Thanks,
    Brian
    No amount of success at work, can make up for failure at home.

    Just installed an AVIC Z2 this weekend. I had to check out the other topics to find the VSS wire. I found it on this thread, they also talk about using the factory camera on an aftermarket head unit. I may do it in the future because the nav screen is soooo much bigger than the screen that Toyota gives you. I am also thinking about installing a second camera in the grille so that I can get a better idea where the front corners of the truck are. Eh, when I get around to it.

    I'm thinking about picking up the Kenwood 8120 and I'm interested in this install as well. I've looked into that thread about the common signal lines and it all looks like rocket science to me! I can't figure out for the life of me which is which!

    Can someone kindly narrow down just the wires on the flip down factory monitor wire bundle to tap into to get a video signal?

    Please, please??! Anyone?!


    Thanks,

    I just did something similar with my truck, here's the thread relating to the topic.

    Gentex backup camera monitor with pre-wired harness

    In case you're wondering which wire does what on the camera harness in the tailgate, there are 4 wires going into it. Red and black as usual are the power inputs, red being positive and black the ground. The two other wires are the video output. If you've wired up the monitor and receive a garbled video signal, just switch the two video wires and the image should clear up. If not, there must be some other type of interference or video incompatibility.

    Keep in mind that the camera requires the 5.5-7V power input to come from the connector in the overhead console. Whatever head unit you get to go with the camera, look to see if it is able to provide the correct voltage to the camera. If not, it is a relatively simple task to use a higher voltage signal and tie in a voltage regulator to drop it down to the required voltage (the fine folk over at Digi-Key will be willing to help find one for you).

    Thanks Dajester,

    I was hoping to tap the aftermarket head unit on to the wire leads on the overhead flip down monitor pre-wire bundle.
