Camera Wiring

There are two options for powering up the camera.This camera can be powered to be available while the vehicle is running or to only be used as a back-up camera.

Power camera with reverse

  1. Remove the tail light from the vehicle to allow access to the light bulbs wiring. (If help is needed, review the vehicles owners manual section on replacing the tail light bulbs.) (Figure A)
  2. Find the wiring that connects to the reverse bulb.There is normally 2 wires. (Figure B)
  3. Using a Digital Multi-meter on the DC Voltage setting, to verify the reverse wire. (Figure C)
  4. Connect the RED wire labeled +12V to the reverse wire.

Connect the BLACK wire to a chassis ground. NOTE: If lighting circuit has pulse width modulation, please use part # TE-CAMFLTR.

Power camera with accessory

  1. Find a reliable 12 volt accessory source in the vehicle. This can be found at the radio if it is being replaced with an aftermarket radio. 2
  2. Using a Digital Multi-meter on the DC Voltage setting, to verify the accessory wire. (Figure C)
  3. Connect the RED wire labeled +12V to the accessory wire. Connect the BLACK wire to a chassis ground.


  1. Connect the GREEN wire labeled Trigger to a reverse line in the vehicle. This wire will be used to trigger the LEDs on the camera. (Figure B.2)
  2. Run the extension cable to the front of the vehicle. (Figure A)
  3. The RED wire on the YELLOW RCA can be used in different ways. This wire is the same RED wire that is at the other end of the extension cable. (Figure B.1)
    • If connected to REVERSE in the rear, the RED wire at the YELLOW RCA can be used as a reverse trigger for a monitor, mirror or aftermarket radio.
    • If connected to 12 volt accessory in the rear, please cap off this wire on the YELLOW RCA. 
    •  If a REVERSE or 12 volt accessory could not be found in the rear of the vehicle, this wire can be used to power the camera. If this solution is used, cap off the RED wire in the rear.
  4. Connect the YELLOW RCA to the backup camera or video input of the monitor.

NOTE: Active parking lines will still be active if camera is powered on by ignition.
