Thanks for the super-detailed instructions on installing the back-up camera - only problem for me is that images you included aren't loading for me and I'm a visual learner. Any way to re-post pictures? Thanks!

For those of you without the internal wiring from the front to the rear, what kind of wire did you use. All I have right now is telephone and network cable, does anyone know if that is adequate for the video?

Stranded cable is better, since there is regular movement in the vehicle. Most telephone and network cable is solid and intended for use in a static environment.

Hi all, I have a 2013 SV (Nav without Bose) that I'm attempting to add the OEM backup camera to, and have run into an issue. Unlike many of you, I don't appear to have camera wiring in the main harness - it's not in the driver kickpanel connector (M21), and it's not available at the rear of the AV unit (M96.) I assume the AV unit itself still supports a camera though, so I'd ideally like to add the missing pins to the existing connector and see if that works. The connector, unfortunately, looks like it's part of the $1200 main electrical harness, so I can't just buy it to steal pins from. I think the pins themselves are an uncommon Sumitomo product line not sold in quantities under 50k: http://prd.sws.co.jp/components/series/pdf/en/nh.pdf

Has anyone successfully wired up a 2013 SV that's missing the camera wires at the AV unit? Thanks for any advice.

My wires were only in the kick panel, like others that posted, they did not run to the back of the car so I spliced in there. Have you tried checking ebay or someone recycling leaf's to get your missing connector and wires?

I have a 2011 SV; did they come with the factory wiring cables?; if so where do they end? I have decided to keep my car, which is one bar down and see if Nissan or an aftermarket battery provider will show up down the line with an upgrade. The car has given me no trouble and I expect it to last at least a decade. So, it's worth the investment of a rear view camera.
