ASE Mechanic:
with out any schematics you can trace these wires down by finding the reverse lights, and disconnecting the bulb and installing a test light, and with a buddy put in reverse while you check to see which wire gets hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to Reverse the Image on Backup Camera eHow


After installing a backup camera on your vehicle, you need to reverse the image so that the image on the screen matches that of your rear-view mirror. The orientation must match so that the driver doesn't get confused with two conflicting images. The nature of the camera's technology is that its image will be recorded un-reflected, but the mirror will display a reflected image. Fortunately, the engineers who designed back-up cameras thought of this and created simple controls for you to change the orientation.

"Life wire??" I don't know what you mean.
Usually, the backup camera will derive its power from the positive lead of your backup lights, so that it only turns on when you're backing up. You can use a standard wire tap to derive positive (+) from either backup light, and use chassis ground for the negative (-) lead of the camera.

I have a 2003 chevy cargo battery went dead due to leaving my back up camera on. Now the truck idles rough and ran perfect before the battery went dead...could it be that the...

Make sure the battery is fully charged before installing it. Some manufactuers have problems with electronics working with a low charge.

You may be able to get a scan on your vehicle with a more advanced scanner like a Dealer uses. You will not get any readings with the built-in system unless a "check engine" light is on.

The onboard computer can be bypassed with a Dealer unit which directly communicates with the vehicle components. The Dealer computer directly reads the engine controls and a Technician can ask different questions through this hookup.

Yes, it is possible for the vehicle to relearn its operating perameters.

Also wire your backup camera to a power line that is shut off when the car is off. Some people use the backup switch or backup lights to power the camera.
