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.

open up the rear bulb compartment cover

a hand full of fuses as you
use a LED test light or voltmeter to find the right wire

and use those color wires as your power /earth for the reverse camera

or you need the rear loom wiring diagram for that 2006 chev

Im trying to instal a back up camera on a 20008 gmc canyon and would like to know if it makes and difference which black wire I tap into on the reverse wires.I know the light green is the positive.


Most back up lamp sockets have just 2 terminals for a single filament lamp.

It's not unusual to have more than one wire per terminal. All wires that are connected to any one terminal are electrically the SAME - so it doesn't matter which you tap in to.

I can't tell from your photo if the brown wires all go to the same terminal (but I suspect with 99% certainty that they do), but you can always check the wires by running the engine, put it into reverse, set the parking brake and turn the engine off - but leaving the key on - while in gear (if you can't do this yourself - you'll need someone to put it in reverse and step on the brakes). The back up lights should be on. Use your tester to be SURE you have 12VDC between the GREEN and one of the BROWN wires. Use those two wires for your 12VDC supply circuit to the camera.

Reverse light wiring diagram


The easy way to find out what was the positive or the negative without knowing the wire color code or without using the tester,,,is.. cut the bulb's line you want to know. Scratch them one by one to the unpainted vehicle's body,,If the wire has built a spark?.. That is the POSITIVE.

My revirse lights do not work


Really dont need to know color of wire for this system is simple. On the switch (left rear corner on transmission) there are three wires. one wire is power, one allows it to start in park or neutral and the other is for the reverse lights. If I remember correctly the two outer terminals operate the reverse lights. Find the power lead and jump to each of the other two to determine which is for the reverse lights. Likely you will find that the switch is bad and there is no wiring problem. Make sure that reverse lights have good grounds as well.
