So if the idea is to have the look of OEM =and with the PDC- then there is nothing else out there. That's what I was looking for...
Camera -in OEM-like trunk release mount- installed:
CIC removed; the camera video (yellow RCA) and camera power jack exposed:
Custom harness with premade connections amd camera emulator ready to go in:
Harness plugged in, iDrive coded for rear camera, OEM screen enabled:
- Hardware is PnP; coding required for the OEM camera screen.
- PDC integrated with OEM camera screen
- No other modifications/hardware required. Kit includes camera, harness and coding.
you can easily access it? I installed/coded mine Friday and I don't think I'm getting power to the camera. I'm working with Patryk on this but know its likely going to be a challenge to diagnose between continents... I'm curious what you get with the camera unplugged, understand if its buried and you can't get to it easily.
I have everything coded, CIC looks like yours however there is no picture. I can adjust the contrast and brightness in the display so this has me a little baffled. I would assume the picture would remain black with no video signal... maybe thats a CIC display function though. I plan on hitting RadioShack to make a jumper to test for power back at the camera plug. I'm betting its up in the harness somewhere though.
Any thoughts/help appreciated.
