exactly!!! you got it!! connecting the camera trigger wire to the pin 7 of the middle plug of the PDC gives you an option to turn on/off the camera from the front button... if you don't care abbout the manual control (in addition to automatic control), then you should be all set with yuor present set up...

Oh shit....i will change the wiring next week..... to connect it to the pdc. As i did not know how it looks like, i did not pay attention to the module.
Well.... more work for next week.

I'm installing a Dynavin and backup camera. Since I have to run a video cable from back to front could I run an extra wire? Is there a place up front to pick up a 12 volt trigger off of the reverse switch? Seems like that would solve the flicker issue. I don't have PDC so going that route won't work for me.

Thanks

You'll need to use the reverse light to trigger a relay connected to your battery (fused of course). That will give you clean power and stop your flickering issue.

The feed for the reverse lights comes from the LKM and that's the source of the pulse. I was hoping to tap off at the shifter, before the LKM.

Wink

Did you get any further or decide it was too much headache? I'm trying to decide for myself.

So I guess there is no camera that fits directly on our cars without any modification?
