Install backup Camera
Before commence mounting the gadget, you have to prepare the following tools in advance. Here is a list of the tools: solder, screws, electrical tape and cordless drill.

Third, find out the reverse light wire which is located either at the reverse light bulb or at the trailer harness. Have a test on the wire using a multi-meter. When the car is in all gears, the result will be 0 volts. In reverse, there will be 12 volts.
Fourth, fasten the power wire of the backup camera together to the reverse wire of the car. Use an electrical tape to seal the connection. Get a clean metal surface to ground to and then mount the camera’s ground wire using cordless drill and tapping screw.
Fifth, run signal wire of the vehicle to the monitor. Put the car in reverse and watch for a video signal to test if the connection and installation is OK.
