That's too bad. I was hoping to avoid wiring to the AV.

I got it! Finally!

So it turned out that I needed the Front to Rear Connection. I bought colored wire to match the Camera and ran automotive copper wire, TXL, 20 GA, under the trim and some carpet along the way.

dflem thank you for this -

Camera --------- M21 Connector

Red --------------> White Pin #24 (+6.2V)
Black ------------> Black Pin #25 (Common)
Yellow ----------> Red Pin #9 (Video)
White -----------> Black/Grey Pin #8 (Shield)

Then connect M21 Black Pin #7 (Camera Sense) to chassis ground.

Congratulations! Well done.

Interesting that your SL didn't have the camera wires in the back-to-front harness while mine did. I guess there was no consistency in what harnesses were used, as long as the harnesses that were used were adequate to the needs of the particular vehicle.

Did you figure it out? My 2013 SV has the exact same missing wiring.

Looks like we might need to insert wires into the pins directly on the AV unit, but I have no clue how... Might need to visit an electronics store to get the correct sized pins.

Chiv,

Which SV features do you have? QC, LED, Nav?

Just popped open the back of the AV unit and took a photo of the connector. It looks like the attached photos. I'm not sure yet if I have to insert any pins.

Anyone have any ideas?

You would need to see if the service manual has the pinout of that connector.

Also, check to see where the reverse is picked up, so the LCD screen switches to the camera. Either way, the service manual should have that info?
