Advice needed on running video wire from backup camera to dash receiver (2008)

2673 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Amerikaner83
I'm about to begin installing a new navigation receiver and backup camera in my 2008 Honda CR-V EX. Before I start I would appreciate any tips or guidance on running the video wire from the backup camera on my license plate to the receiver in the dashboard.

What's the easiest way to do this?

Are there any online instructions or videos? I have found instructions for installing the receiver, but have not been able to find any for running the wire from the back camera.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I did this last week (sorry no pictures).

Remove the plastic trim from the rear hood. I have cut away the old camera. Placed the new camera and ran the wiring through the rubber at the hinges on the left side. I wanted to avoid getting stuck at the glass roof so I ran the wiring down to the doorsteps and plastic panel near the seatbelt (remove the doorrubber and there is a easy acces). Below the dash there is enough room to get it through. this part speaks for itself

The only problem I ran into is that I can't get any image on my headunit (pioneer camera and avic F9770bt headunit). Reversing positive and negative doesn't work. I can only get a black screen when I put it in reverse.

Hope you have better luck!

Motil, did you just run video? How did you power the cam and how did you run a "trigger" wire" to the head unit?

I have to come back to you on that. I tapped in on the original wiring for the + and groundwire. I ran all three wires from the boot to the headunit. It does trigger when I change to reverse but still no visuals on my screen. The supplier thinks the camera is broke. I have to remove everything and send it back :( When I have the time I will, but it will not be this weekend.
