Reverse Wire

I am installing a video module and back-up camera system that I got from Mobile video mobile tv mobile video system mobile satellite tv mobile video systems nav tv car tv dvd car video car dvd car tv car video system car satellite tv video interface car navigation system car video navigation car navigation gps car tv scre - Automotive Automobile Video & Navigations - Navigation Systems - Navigation Conversions - Digital Clusters - Navigtion / Video Integration Upgrades - Reverse Camera Integrations - Navigation Integrations - Auto TV - Auto Navigat

I need help finding that reverse wire where I can tap in the (+) wire of the back-up camera. Will the ones behind the brake lights (blue, yellow on the right or yellow, brown on the left)be sufficient?

Thanks for your reply.

Yes... Tap into the wire with a "scotch-lock"...
The worse thing that can happen is that you might get a "Check Reverse Light" on your dash, unlikely though !

Thanks.

So, I tapped the reverse cam on the blue/yellow (+) and the brown (-) wires behind the left backup light. The camera will show on the monitor for about 5 seconds, then it will start to flicker before the screen blacks out.

Any other suggestion? Thanks again.

Try it again, but go to the rear and notice the reverse lights whilst the screen struggles... Do they dim? Does the wire get warm?
If yes, then maybe a relay would solve it !
Maybe the wire is not thick enough to power the cam/screen... Try 15-20 amp/gauge wire...
