    Default Wiring for Reversing Camera

    hey everyone, i bought a wireless reversing camera and it is always flickering or not acknowledging that it's in reverse gear...the guy sent me out a new transmittor and new reciever...problem still hasn't been fixed..

    the reversing camera connects to the transmittor, the transmittor has a red and black wire to attach to the reverse light..the transmittor wirelessly connects to my gps monitor..the reciever is within the gps charger itself which has 2 leads to go into the monitor..DC power, and AV in.

    im beginning to think my red and black wires are in the wrong spot...i have wired it in parallel..red wire went to the green of the reverse light, and the black wire to the brown of the reverse light...was i meant to wire it in parallel? is it the wrong way round? should it be wired in series? if so, to which reverse wire, the green or brown?

    if anyone has a wiring diagram or anything for this i'd appreciate it heaps

    thanks everyone

    it shouldnt go on at all if its the wrong polarity. i would be looking moe towards the switch on your selector. maybe a dud which means the reverse light would flicker.

    set up a relay on the + side (the green wire, i believe, but use your test light to be sure) and run a seperate power wire. so the unit is powered of a solid constant power and the the reverse light only serves as a signal to turn it off and on.

    reverse lights are fine, infact, it was only jut serviced yesterday..ok, if i knew anything about what you just said i would. haha...i know the relay has 30,85,86,87...30 is power? 87 is going to whatever your load is..i think...#### i hate electricity, i'll tell the guy the sold it to me its a piece of shit, and if he can find a wiring diagram that will make it work, i'll use it haha

    yepppp...i couldn't get it to flicker at all..it's perfect now...this is the terminal and wire set up

    TERMINAL 30- Wire straight from battery
    TERMINAL 85- Black wire of the transmittor(which is connected to the camera using sockets like an earphone jack) also connected to the brown wire of the reverse light
    TERMINAL 86- To the green wire of the reverse light to act as a switch(when it goes into reverse, power goes through and activated the relay)
    TERMINAL 87- Red wire of the transmittor (connected to camera, same as 85)

    so yes, didn't take that long to figure it out, but thanks for helping me wire it up properly, was gunna snd the whole lot back and tell the guy it's a piece of shit, but you saved me from that haha thanks dude...just gotta get the positive wire from the battery up the length of the car and it should be sweet as

    thanks dude
