Im in the process of replacing my failing backup camera. It came with a crappy Pyle screen attached to the rear view mirror. I have a pioneer 1400NEX that came installed as well, so I attached the Camera RCA to the 1400NEX and got an image to appear, but the camera image was as crappy as on the Pyle.
So, I bought a new generic camera (that I've used on other vehicles without issue) and had to "splice" in the camera to the wires but couldn't get any signal to the Pioneer head unit. The wires on the camera are black, Red, Yellow, Orange, Green and White. The wires on the OG cable coming out of the roof are Shield, Red, Yellow and Blue. I know that the Yellow is the camera signal, and that the red is the + and black/blue is the negative. I tried every other combo with the other wheres but cannot get a signal to the head unit.
I believe that when pulling the wire to do the splice, I may have pulled apart the tiny connector that most likely came with the original PYLE setup. Or maybe the 1400NEX cannot support this particular video signal? Looking at upgrading the head unit to a ATOTO Series8.
Has anyone taken apart the inside of their AI to show the wires going out to the camera?
Has anyone successfully ran new camera cables from the rear to the front? Could you share your experience or any knowledge?
To your question of the wires leading out the back of the rig to the camera/brake-light assembly; yes, I did this today in my attempt to install an aftermarker rear camera/brake-light...here is exactly what you get (in a 2017/18 AIGT):
Now to my question; does anyone know how to marry these two wire assemblies together? (shown below). Coming out of the aftermarket rear camera/brake-light assembly is a set of black & red wires and two RCA connectors.
Before throwing in the towel and reaching out to one of several local shops that I presume could make easy (but not cheap) work of this install, I wanted to see if the Airstream Nation had some guidance and/or encouragement that this could be DIY'd, or am I best to leave this to someone professionally trained to execute(?)
This "Installation" document came with the aftermarket camera/brake-light assembly. https://www.amazon.com/KOHNEASO-Back...0B823NZ1L&th=1
PS - This install came to a hard stop & abort this afternoon when I discovered that the wiring part of this task was not a simply "plug & play". I reassembled the OEM camera/brake-light assembly back onto my rig to contemplate my next move.
