Rev. Lights go hot (powered on) the camera needs power only when rev. Lights go on, hook the ground wire for the system to a good piece of steel instead of the light system in case a failure occurs its quarantined to one area.

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.

You have to connect the negative to the vehicle body, and the positive to the reverse light wire.

Have issues with trailer lights. Both turn signals on trailer flash when I use left or right turn signal. Have 7 pin factory plug. Lights on trailer work fine, hooked up to 97 Silverado. Act funny on 2000...


Standard wiring colors are as follows:

4-Way

5-Way

6-Way

7-Way

Green

Yellow

Brown

White

Red

Blue

Purple

Right Turn & Brake

Left Turn & Brake

Tail Lights

Ground

Backup Lights

Electric Brakes

Auxiliary Power
Green- Right Turn and Brake
Yellow- Left Turn and Brake
Brown- Tail Lights
White- Ground
Red- Reverse (Back Up) Lights
Blue- Electric Brakes
Purple- Auxiliary Power

It sounds like your green and yello wires are shorted together somewhere along the length of the harness. I would check the wires on the trailer first. Easier yet, if you have another trailer to connec or access to another to use for testing, connect to it and see if the problem repeats; if it does the trouble is in the vehicle's wiring.

I have a 2004 Lexus RX330 and last week the backup camera stopped working for two days then it worked for a day and now it is again not working. Here is the problem when I put the car in reverse it is as...


With a backup camera I installed on my wife's Pathfinder, there was a power wire that connected to the backup light power. So when the backup lights came on in reverse, the camera got power, sent a video signal to the dash radio screen, and it would automatically switch to that input. You might have a bad wire/connection supplying power to 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.

Starter instalation


you should only have 3 wires going to the starter there will be a large black wire possably with a red end, a thiner red wire and a thinner purple wire

the thin purple wire is the trigger wire and goes on the small post on the starter solenoid. \
the thin red and thick black/red will get tied in together on the larger post on the starter solenoid
