    Hello guys, I'm in distress here. I've got an OEM back up camera in my rear view mirror. I installed an aftermarket in dash stereo that has back up camera capabilities. My question is, What color are the wires or what plug goes to the back up cam in the mirror? Thanks in advance

    When you're integrating an aftermarket stereo with an OEM backup camera installed in your rearview mirror, understanding the wiring specifics can be crucial but can vary widely depending on your vehicle's make and model. Typically, the OEM backup camera wiring is integrated into the vehicle's existing wiring harness.

    Typically, the OEM backup camera wiring is integrated into the vehicle's existing wiring harness. To identify the correct wires, consulting your vehicle's service manual or wiring diagrams specific to your model is recommended. This will help pinpoint the exact wire colors and connections needed for your installation.

    You just have to ensure that your aftermarket stereo is compatible with retaining the functionality of the OEM backup camera. Some stereos may require additional adapters or interfaces to work seamlessly with the OEM camera setup. While wire colors for backup cameras can vary—commonly appearing as white, red, or black—it's essential to verify these specifics for your particular vehicle.

    More to come.
    I have also been researching this on my 2010 double cab. I looks like you need an adapter and it depends on if you want to keep both feeds with a weaker signal or just have it in the new stereo.
    Also, they note the stock camera is meant for a smaller picture and older quality. It might be worth upgrading the actual camera as well.

    Hope this helps.
