2016 HOLDEN COMMODORE SV6 BLACK PACK VFII MY16
I'm currently waiting for a rear cam for a Thinkware U1000 . I bought the front and rear Cam off a fella on Gummie, his car stuffed up so he needed the money, he had bought them separately and both were brand new but when i tried to connect them up the rear cam wouldn't work, any way long story short, he had bought the wrong rear cam, he refunded me the cost off the rear cam and i posted it back to Amazon for him so he could get a refund , I managed to find the correct rear cam on Automotive Superstore for less than the guy refunded me which i paid for last Wednesday and I'M STILL WAITING FFS !!!!! :mad: I hate waiting for stuff
I'm normally the same. But it's still working, so a bit patient with this one. Plus, it's free.

The Blackvue rear camera cable is a Power supply and image transmission cable,
I have 2 x Blackvue 750S-2ch DC’s and I had no issues with loss of key fob loss of transmission,
I’m surprised it has effected it,
Not sure the ferrite insulators will rectify the issue,
However, I stand correct if I’m wrong,
But if it does correct the fault, that is good thing.

I don't even know what they are sending. The email said "we have some magnetic rings that may help to solve the problem" I probably wouldn't mind that much if the car never had remote start but I still like freaking people out when it starts with no one it. Plus remote start is good for winter as long as I remember to set the heater on the night before so it's nice and toasty when I get in.

kleanphil is on the money with ferrite beads etc, they will be sending you some ferrite rings which you will loop the cable through just after the connectors a bit like the picture here.

Got them. It seems to be back to normal. Just looped the wire through them and all good. I just have them hanging outside at the moment. Will tuck them behind the headlining tomorrow when I have time and test again.

Great to hear kleanphil. You must have it by now?

I finally got the rear cam yesterday , it's all fitted and working . I bought the new cam because the dashcam in the other car stopped working , so i thought i'd update the cam in my car and put the replaced cam in the other car , turns out the cam was fine and it was the battery pack that was stuffed, so i now have a Thinkware 700 for sale :rolleyes: and a Cellink Neo i'm contemplating repairing instead of replacing. I have put a request in for a new sub forum New Dashcam Forum specifically for dashcams , if successfull i'll be posting in there shortly . Good to hear you got yours sorted :D
