How to install a Wireless Backup Camera with monitor: 

Car Camera, Monitor and Power Source

1.   Take off your license plate at the back of your car.

2.   Remove the car’s Reverse Tail Light so as to access the backup lamp wires.

3.   Connect the camera’s power leads to the reverse light of your car to get the power – red wire for positive and black wire for negative.

4.   Connect the power cable leads running from the Reverse Light, or ‘tail light’ to your camera, via the trunk to behind  the License Plate.

5.   Put back the Tail light and the License Plate

6.   Fix the camera’s bracket to the license plate where the bottom two screws are situated, using those screw holes to fix it in.

7.   Position the Monitor on the front dashboard of the car or wherever you decide to put it, making sure that it will not block your view while driving.

8.   Connect the wireless Monitor (the receiver) to a power lead running to your car battery or cigarette lighter (or the reverse/gear wire) to get the power – red wire for positive and black wire for negative.

9.   After complete installation, you should see the rear view image when your car is in reverse shift.

Please check any manual or instructions that came with your Backup Camera when going through this, just for your reference.

Important Note:
Remember to have a good look at the outlay of your car’s interior before you proceed, as cars vary a bit and not all are exactly the same!  In particular, where you have installed the camera’s power to the reverse light.  With some cars, you can just snake the power leads under the lining of the Trunk, with others you may have to drill a small hole in the Trunk/boot of the car to run the power leads through.

 

Generally, it is easier to connect the Monitor’s power cable or leads via the Cigarette Lighter, depending on the car.
