Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

2001 Mazda Tribute- Trying to install aftermarket backup camera, but reverse light wiring is confusing. Which is the + and which is the - ? I've seen that the black (which I thought was -) is actually a + and the red wire is a - (which I thought would have been +). Can anyone set me straight? I have it wired red (+) from camera to red on reverse light, black (-) from camera to black on reverse light.

Reversing lamps are turned on by grounding. I can't identify any red wire in either the L4 or V6 model.

One reverse light mazda


"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.

My 2001 mazda tribute does not have fog lights on it now how hard is it to put them on


It is a fairly simple job, as long as you follow the instructions that come with the fog lights. That is, if you are going to get aftermarket lights. If you get factory lights from a dealership, there may not be any instructions or mounting brackets with them. There are many different styles of fog lights that would look good on your Mazda. And the aftermarket lights come with everything needed for the installation. Take your time, do the job one step at a time, and pay extra close attention to the wiring instructions. Good luck.

CAr stereo not working after battery jump


Doubtful, my guess would be fried. Does the unit get power?

Check the fuses, especially the one for car stereo. If that's not blown you'll need to put the head unit and check the fuse either on the 12V power wire or on the wiring harness or on the back of the actual unit.

I've seen that same thing done several times and usually the damage is more drastic, consider yourself lucky.
