how did he manage to put the licence plate light back in that hole after he
pulled that thick camera wire through it.

b better to be on at all times

I need to know more in details on the connections for the power you draw
for the license plate camera and the mirror screen. Could you please put
those in details. Thank you.

instead of running the power for mirror down A pillar cant you just go
short distance up to dome light or the temp/compass display

Can you clarify the part when you want to connect the mirror power
permanently. Like does you cost a lot of car’s power source? and which to
connect it to again?

The Pyle back up camera stopped working great

because you connect the power of the camera to the reverse ligth, so if you
put the reverse the ligths and the camera turn on.

how does the camera know when you are in reverse??

If you are not getting a respond from from your camera . What could be the
caused? It was working before then stop. the wireless pickup from cameras
outside but not from the one install in the care

A backup system can be added to any car.

Classy video, Ben. Clean and neat. Thanks. Is it just as easy to install a

Come on, what good is an electronics project unless you take everything
apart at least four times? – Ben Wojdyla

Dude… why show how to install a WIRELESS system with bolt on mirror? This
is not difficult enough for a DIY video

This kit was the Peak Automotive PKC0RG. There are tons of them on the
market right now, so shop around for something you like. I saw one online
the other day that had a full-width screen behind the mirror. -Ben Wojdyla

for the negative wire from the camera do you ground that or connect it to
the other wire of the reverse light?
January 24, 2014 at 12:38 am (UTC 0)
were did you get the camera
January 24, 2014 at 1:15 am (UTC 0)
Interested all the way up to the part where you put that fat thing OVER the
mirror. Looks bad
January 24, 2014 at 1:34 am (UTC 0)
Wonderful video Ben, I hope to see more from you in the future!

Unfortunately the best ground for this car was inaccessible to cameras,
regardless, finding a ground is the easiest part of a wiring project. The
dash support is always a metal structure riddled with holes and bolts with
various electronics components already grounds to it. All you have to do is
find spot where wiring is bolted to metal and tie in with a similar
connector. – Ben Wojdyla

What brand and model is that?
January 24, 2014 at 3:19 am (UTC 0)
What the name of camera.
January 24, 2014 at 3:48 am (UTC 0)
I have a Pyle back up camera it was working great but now the screen is
blue when I turn car on. Any idea what may have happened.

Can this be installed on a older truck? Like a 1985 Nissan Pick Up?
