Installation method and precautions of rear view camera

Sep 22, 2021

Rear view cameras are very popular among car owners. Rear view cameras play a great role in ensuring the safety of reversing, especially in crowded parking lots, places with insufficient light, and places where children often play. You can install as many as you want, but usually one or two is sufficient.

Installation steps of the rear view camera: The first step is to remove the power connection at the vehicle battery, and place the removed connection away from the electrode to prevent accidental power on. The second step is to determine the installation location of the on-board camera. There are generally two types: one is the position of the license plate lamp installed on the license plate frame. This installation is relatively easy. Just use the small screws provided in the camera accessories to fix the camera on the license plate light. The location is ok. By adjusting the iron sheet or gasket in the accessories, the camera can achieve the best reversing angle of view. The cable of the camera penetrates into the car through the gap of the license plate lamp, and is connected with the power supply of the reversing lamp and the video extension cable. This kind of installation method of reversing camera is a more popular one, the appearance is more concealed, and the installation is more convenient. The other is drilled installation, embedded in the bumper. The advantage of this method is that there is no need to drill holes in the metal parts behind the car. Because the bumper is a plastic part, it is relatively easy to wire the camera. Step 3: Connect the power cord of the camera to the power cord of the rear reversing light. Then connect the video cable of the camera to the video extension cable, and connect the other end of the video extension cable to the AV input of the car monitor. Finally, restore the battery power supply, start the car, put in reverse gear, and you can see the reverse image on the car display.

 Note: 1. Reversing cannot completely rely on the reversing rear-view system, it can only be used as an auxiliary tool for reversing. 2. The car monitor must be connected correctly. If the monitor does not provide an AV input interface, you must find the corresponding video cable or install a video switching device to display the rear view image normally. 3. Don't easily connect the power supply of the vehicle electrical appliances directly to the power supply of the vehicle battery, so as to avoid unstable power.
