Camera Installation
NOTE: The transmitting antenna is located in the camera’s wire shielding. When
installing the camera wire, straighten the wire for best transmission, allowing the monitor
to receive the clearest image possible. DO NOT CUT THIS WIRE.
1.
Remove the rear license plate to determine the best way to run the power wires to the
reverse lights.
2.
The camera cable can be routed through an existing grommet, or through a 5/8 inch
hole drilled near the vehicle’s rear license plate. Be sure to check behind the intended
drilling location before drilling to ensure no wires or mechanisms interfere or could
be damaged during drilling. Check for interference with license plate lights and the
hatch release switch and/or mechanism. If not using an existing factory grommet, drill
a 5/8 inch hole at the selected location. Coat the edge of the hole with rust
6
preventative. Route the camera cable connector through the hole and insert the
grommet into the hole to prevent water from entering into the vehicle.
3.
Place the camera bracket behind the license plate and line up the holes. Fasten the
camera mounting bracket and the license plate to the vehicle using the anti-theft
screws provided. After installation of screws with the tool provided, place the tool in
the glove compartment or other safe place for future use.
