Reverse Camera Auto-Switching


Today I've being going nuts looking for a Yellow/Green cable, as per the electronic service manual, to hook up to my Pioneer AVH-3300BT. So far the rear camera is working if I select it from the source list, but until I can wire that auto-switch cable to something, it won't do it when I select reverse.

After doing a bit of reading here about towbar looms and the such, it would appear maybe I should be looking for a Blue/White cable instead.

Ideally I would rather wire it up near the dash, any ideas where to find it so I can hook into it? So far my plan for tomorrow is to run a length of wire from the dash to the boot, PLEASE help me out and give me an easier job emoticon !

Also today I made a bypass using a 12v 4-pin relay to get rid of the stupid Pioneer procedure to allow the head unit to do anything other than radio without the handbrake on, seems giving a permanent earth no longer works. Works a treat with the relay grounding after the unit turns on, I activated the relay using the amp power wire which gets power about 1 second after it turns on which then connects up the ground.

Re:


Try hooking the camera to the reverse lights, that way when you are in reverse and the lights are on, the camera will work.

Re: Reverse Camera Auto-Switching


Hey Tony,

The camera's power is run from the back of the 12v output in the boot, so it's on when the car is on. I often have the back of the X-Trail loaded so high and I can't use the rear view mirror, so by wiring it into the 12v output it means I can view the camera on my Pioneer while not in reverse.

Main problem at the moment is the auto-switching, I could run a wire down to the rear lights but the power for those rear lights ultimately comes from up front, if I can find out where it makes the job so much easier. emoticon

You can find the Yellow/Green wire for Reverse connected at terminal 35 on the TCM (Transmission Control Module) on the passenger's side footwell as shown in the following diagram for a RHD Xtrail T30

Re: Reverse Camera Auto-Switching


Do you have the sat nav in the glove box? if so then green wire with 2 silver stripes 50mm apart at the back of the sat nav with 3 blue wires next to it on one side and a white wire on the other side is the reverse trigger.

Hope this helps

Re: Reverse Camera Auto-Switching


Hi Mustafa,
Do you have the standard head unit which came with the Xtrail or a different one ?
Some head units just need to sense a signal on the AV input to switch and nothing else. Fow these you can just power the camera from the reversing lights and it will work.
