You can find that wire easily by pulling a taillight. I did that when I installed a backup beeper kit with 3 sensors in the rear bumper. You will have to pull either the right or left inside panel to get access.Anyone know reverse light wire for left rear light. I have a 2016 Smart, trying to install backup camera.
did you finish your install? i see two wires on the driver side harness that are yellow with red stripe. did you pick one of the two arbitrarily, or is there a reason to distinguish the two?Since no one is answering, for whatever this is worth...
On my 2013 it is supposed to be yellow with red stripe. I'm installing the same thing today myself.
That is a great idea. I'm changing my plan to be similar to yours. I was able to depin the connector using this video as a guide, but am not able to figure out how to add a third wire to the pin. Did you buy a new pin? If not, how did you manage to "open" the existing crimp(to add a third wire) without destroying the whole pin?I assumed the two wires were one for input and one for jumper to right side. I de-pinned the connector and re-crimped the pin with my camera power in the set with the two. Technically it was relay power and not cam power exactly. I added a dash switch so I could turn the cam on whenever I wanted and put the cam on a relay to account for two possible power inputs. You can see the relay in the background.
