im guessing that you are asking this because you cant be bothered to strip the car down for one wire?

i belive the the radio only needs this wire to show a reverse camera on screen or something
so if you dont have the reverse camera then i recomend that you first leave nothing on the reverse wire and test the radio
it should work
if it does what you want it to do then put the car back together and put the radio back in place

How do you find the reverse gear wire from cab area; when you put in reverse the reverse lights come on- I need to hook up a monitor to reverse gear...

the switch is on the gearbox ,i wouldnt even bother looking for the other end in the cab unless you find the loom running down one side at the front footwell and you can locate the colour of the wire in this big bunch ,unless of course that as this is a 2011 car it may not have a wiring loom as such but a bus line type system with a transistorised switch in the back like the new F type jag .Happy motoring and leave well alone is my advice

18 horse Intec. Starter gear will not go up to

Check to see if you have the wires on the starter or the wires on the battery reversed. This will cause the starter to spin in the wrong direction. I've accidently hooked my battery up backwards and this happened. The spinning of the starter causes the gear to go up. If it spins the wrong way, nothing happens.

What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +

Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.

Hooking up backup camera to jensen uv8

That wire needs to run back and be hooked to the revese bulb. When the car is in reverse, activating the reverse lights the unit will get a signal knowing that you can use the camera

Rear camera to show on screen in reverse? panasonic cq-vd7001u

It sounds like you may not have it wired correctly. When the vehicle is reverse the cam works, but when you shift to any other gear IE: park, drive etc you go to black screen as if no signal. I had basically the same problem on my unit, different unit but...on the back of my unit there was a wire, you probably have the same, that said rear cam 12v dc.I assumed this meant any positive wire would do, but this is NOT the case. That wire must be hooked to the 12v positive reverse light. With my cam I had the wires from the cam hooked up, red to positive reverse light wire, black to ground and obviously video wire to the video in on the unit. but the problem arose with that rear cam 12v dc wire on the back of the unit. It NEEDS to be connected to the same 12v dc wire as the cam itself. This acts as a 'switch' when in reverse, IE: the reverse lights come on sending power to the wires to turn on the cam. When you're not in reverse the camera 'switches off' because the lights are not on, thus no power is being sent to the wires, thus returning the unit to its normal operating screen. This worked for me, hope it helps. Good Luck.
