SOURCE: need to find the reverse

Hi!
You did not specify the yr and model of your vehicle, but the procedure is the same, remove the tail light assembly as specified on your owners manual to replace a light bulb. Apply the Parking Brake and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position (do not start the vehicle), press the brake pedal and place the Shifter in REVERSE. Remove the Reverse light bulb and use a test light grounded to the vehicle chassis to find which one of the two wires going into the reverse light socket is the 12v+, once located, replace REVERSE light bulb, place shifter lever in PARK and turn key OFF.
Splice the 12v+ wire and connect the 12v+ lead from your camera to it, get your Ground (-) from the vehicle chassis.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

You can ground the wire to any unpainted metal surface. Find a screw or bolt, loosen it, put the wire under it and re-tighten.

SOURCE: 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis. Backup lights won't work

I had the same problem and solved it. Follow the wire harness from the trunk lock located on the trunk lid to the trunk lid hinge torsion bar located on the Driver's side. You will see a electrical connector of wires (male to female snap in black plastic connection). I found a black wire had broken off with a clean cut. This was caused by opening and closing the trunk throughout the years which would bend that wire back and forth until it broke off as a cut. As a result since the reverse lights, trunk lights, rear license plate light and power trunk lock share the same switch integrated into the trunk lock, the open circuit(cut black wire) allows voltage to travel into the truck lock when you shift into reverse. Closing the loop or repair the wire will prevent that. After the repair, I used a strong tape to prevent the lower part of the wire harness to the black connector from moving when opening and closing the trunk.

"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'm trying to hook up a Camera back up system. I need to tap into the power for the back up light to power the camera. My problem is I can not figure out which wire powers the back up lights.


Hi, the backup light power is on the white wire with a light green stripe. You can tap it on either side (left or right tail).
Thanks for using FixYa.

Wiring diagram for reverse light


Splice the camera power wire into one of the backup light bulb sockets at the rear of the car. Make sure there is a good ground connection to the camera housing too. It's best to add a ground wire so there will never be a power problem at the camera.

2002 Mercury Grand Marquis. Backup lights won't work


Does pushing the trunk release button make the back up lights illuminate? Has the car been serviced or wrecked before this problem? Have you been golfing and put clubs in the huge trunk. Either the ground wire for the trunk lid devices is bad or the trunk release wire (purple/orange) and the reverse lamps wire (purple/white) have been reversed.
