Hi Tom I installed headrest monitors but the video shows only on either the head unit or the monitors. I cant get the video to show on the headrest monitor and the head unit at the same time. Do you know how to solve this?

Willie says:

I was able to test my camera before I installed it by applying 12V from an old ac/dc adapter I had laying around to it and hooking the yellow cable to the back of my TV monitor (once I changed the source to the video input) it worked and I knew it should also work on my head unit.  And now is a good time to mark with a sharpie which end is up on your camera, so you don’t mount it upside down.
So to answer the mystery of the pink wire.  The radio (head unit) is looking for a +12V input which lets the head unit know to switch the screen to view the camera.  The super long yellow video cable goes into the rearview video input and the little red wire hanging off of it must be spliced into that pink “parking” control wire. 
***Hint: if your muffler is on the right side of your car you’ll want to run your wires to the left side just to eliminate the possibility of the wires melting on the muffler in case they dangle.***Then once you’ve hidden that cable under all your door molding to the rear of the car you’ll need to get access to your taillight
(a cheap $3-$5 multimeter from Harbor Freight would come in real handy about now), start your car, put it in reverse, apply the parking brake (if it works) or get a friend to hold the brake on while you go around back to discover which lamp is lighted on the taillight.  Mine had all the wires going into one connector so I had to probe on the back to find the 2 wires that gave me a +12V reading on my multimeter.  On my Highlander a white wire with black stripes was my negative and a red wire with black stripes was my positive.  You can now turn your car off.  Take the black and red wire that came with your camera (assuming it is like the one I bought).  The black wire goes to the negative wire on your reverse light and the red wire goes to both the positive wire AND the little red wire hanging off of other end of the yellow video line because the +12V needs to feed all the way back to that pink wire on the back of the head unit to let it know to show you the camera’s image.
For a couple more hints:  My camera came with a hole saw, after it went through the plastic I then needed a bit a little smaller than the hole saw to reach about 2 inches further back and drill into the 1/2″ or so thick Styrofoam behind it so I could run the wires all the way through the bumper (I taped the ends to a wire so only one connector went through the hole at a time and ran the wire behind the bumper so I could reach them) and pushed the camera in the hole with the up mark up.  My taillights are attached to my rear quarter panel so in order to get the wires run to the outside I took the taillight off, hooked up my wires and ran the power and video connector wires through the big holes not used for screws or other taillight fittings down toward the ground behind the bumper.  I attached the connectors to the camera, pulled up the slack and reattached the taillight to hold all those slack wires in place behind the taillight.

Johnny Roberts says:

this radio sucks to many problems backup camera does work with reverse least not automatically and doesn’t work in port 1 as the book says and customer service sucks can’t get a response with any issues you may have,in short save your money and by a good quality American radio and backup camera possibly separate from each other.I don’t recommend anyone buy this not worth the money or time installing it.

Hi All am having this radio installed in my car. It was working fine so far. i face the below problems and i tried getting help online.. but no luck as no where i am able to see..

Something i have changed in it and am not sure how to get back.

New Problem.

1.When i on the system it shows me a white screen showing at the bottom “Prease Press Center of ‘+’ “. when i do that there is a + symbol on the screen which moves from top left, top right, bottom right, bottom left , center and keeps continuing the same. I am not able to go back to the main menu.

2. If i power off the radio, the reverse camera working fine (as it should). If radio is on.. it still shows the white screen with + during reverse.

Existing from the time of installation.

1.when i on the car, there are two pulse of current will flow to the radio, one is for the ignition and other is after starting the car….this one behaves the way like its getting on two times all way till the main screen.

any help is really appreciated..
