OK, I finally got my camera installed in my 2013 SV and there are several issues in this How To that need to be addressed before anyone with this particular car attempts this mod. First of all, according to the factory service manual, the 2013 SV without Bose
does not have have an M84 connector to the AV control unit. It is an M96, which is just a rose by another name but it's very important if you're trying to find a proper wiring diagram!
As for the pin #'s we are discussing, they are 40 for R Camera Comp, 58 (definitely not 56!) for Reverse Camera Signal, and 60 for R Camera Shield. The positions listed earlier are correct though, upper left, lower left and third from the bottom if viewed from above.
The next thing that anyone attempting this should note is that your car will most likely not have any wires in these positions. Mine did not, but like a fool I assumed that the furthest left, etc. were the ones I was looking for. Don't be like me, look at your wiring diagram and pay attention to the pin #'s. We had to add pins to make this work.
I used a BOYO VTL17IR HD camera because it fits behind the license plate and I have heard good things about this brand. It works fine and has a very wide angle, although there are issues with mounting it so low; like the lines that are superimposed on the screen that seem to point over the top of anything in your camera's view! It does come with another mount and I may try to mount it in the latch at a later time.
Now for the weird part: After banging our heads against the wall on our first attempt, my friend brought over a monitor so we could check the feed from the camera. We took our power from the backup lights, and when powered up the camera worked fine. That's when we figured out the pins were missing and made the appropriate connections to the M96 connector. That gave us the blank screen with the lines drawn on the screen, but nothing else.
We checked and re-checked connections and the wiring diagram. We tried reversing the wires on the camera feed. Nothing.
By chance, my friend dropped the R Camera Comp (onent) wire from the connection and the screen lit up with an image. We still don't get it, but just the #60 pin, R Camera Shield is giving us the video feed. Hook up the #40 R Camera Comp and it goes away.
Doesn't make sense, it's contrary to everything I read, but it works.
