Make sure to connect the reverse 12 volts positive to the wire marked
REVERSE and it must provide 12 volts positive when the vehicle is put into
Also the video output from the Camera must be securely connected
to the CAMERA wire on the VIDEO in/out Harness.
My Video connector was slightly damaged and did not make a
Hi Lee, are the positive wire for your camera and reverse wire on your stereo hooked up to the backup light of the vehicle? The 12v positive voltage from the backup light should be powering your camera and sending the signal to your stereo to switch to rear view camera mode via the stereo's reverse wire. From what you're describing by hooking up the positive wire to the reverse wire on the stereo, your stereo would be in constant backup camera view. You only want 12v at the stereo reverse wire when you want the backup camera to kick in such as whey your car is backing up (back up light on). If you have a multimeter to test check that you are getting 12v at the stereo's reverse wire when your car is in reverse. You can test by turning your key to the on position but not started and slide the gear selector from park to reverse. You should be getting 0v at the stereo's reverse wire when in park and 12v when shifted to reverse. If you are only see either constant 0v or 12v regardless of the gear position you have the wrong wire hooked up to the stereo's reverse wire.
I have everything working properly, no issues with my installation. What I'm requesting for in my comment is for BOSS Audio to add additional feature for their back up camera video feed to overlay the parking guidance lines. In my instance I'm using the Nissan factory backup camera with my BOSS stereo and am missing the parking guidelines that were on the factory stereo. Some aftermarket stereos have the option to enable or disable the guidelines as well as some aftermarket cameras have this feature built in. In order for me to have this feature with my current setup (BOSS stereo with factory camera) I would either need to replace the stereo or factory backup camera. If BOSS was able to include this feature as a firmware update to the stereo I wouldn't need to change my setup.
OK just a question for you guys if anyone is online and able to help, now the backup camera reverse and the radio reverse line are both tied into the reverse light on the vehicle. The camera will work if I place the menu in the camera when backing up but it still will not "switch" over from the radio to camera and back or anything like that. I was reading online about another issue because i do not have the brake wire hooked into anything or grounded and it states if you do that you can watch videos and pics, which currently I can not, so just a thought do you guys have the brake wire grounded, hooked up to something or did you guys leave it unconnected, just thinking maybe that could be the reason the trigger is not working as well as the movies and videos. Just let me know guys. Also anyone had any expereince with the wireless steering wheel controls sold on Amazon and Ebay, my car doesnt have them on the wheel so bought this to use but cant seem to get it to program any function.
Lee Garner I have the BV9384NV and it works fine and there is a separate
CAMERA input on the Video Harness.
You mention that the Reverse wires for Camera and Stereo are tied to the Reverse
light. I used the reverse 12 volt from the revers Lamps at the Rear for Camera and the Reverse12 volts for the Stereo from the front vehicle harness wiring.
You might have an issue with some kind of REVERSE switching issue example 12 Volts
going through a relay or a Electronic switching device (you know how the Vehicle
industry is going through a rapid Digitizing cycle depending on the Manufacturer).
If that is the case then your Stereo may not be able to RECOGNIZE the 12 volt Reverse
Signal fast enough to change to Reverse screen and back once the Reverse 12 is gone.
