General Installation Process

Typically installation can be done in three steps, verify completion of each step before proceeding to the next.

  1. Install and test main camera module in the front: double check DIP Switch setting on the main module to match your make/model/year/screen resolution, remove console trim piece to hook up the “main module” to factory display. At this point, you should be able shift in reverse and get the reverse screen. If unable to get the reverse screen to show up, do basic troubleshooting or contact us for help.

  2. Hook up and test camera in the front, a quick 2 minute test to ensure end to end before you tear up the trunk.
  3. Finally install camera in trunk and run wires to the main module, properly connect, secure and conceal all wires, make sure there is NO kink or stress around trunk hinge area when open and close trunk lid.

Other helpful online resources

For reference only, mostly meant to show trim removal, trunk liner removal, wire routing etc., our kits are newer with new hardware and firmware, so please DO NOT TAP INTO fuse box as shown in these videos, as that may damage the module. One of the most common question is our KIT does NOT come with fuse tap or tan/brown connector to fuse panel by glove box, that is by design as fuse tap is *** not NEEDED ***
