Backup Camera Issue

Post by cmartin97 » Sat Sep 17, 2016 7:43 am

I recently installed the Maestro RR with the CH3 harness in my 2013 RAM 2500. I have a Pioneer 4200NEX radio. The truck had a backup camera that displayed in the rear view mirror of the truck. The CH3 had a backup camera RCA cable. I was expecting the video signal to be displayed on both the mirror and the Pioneer. However, the pioneer doesn't display the image. Should I expect it to work this way with this harness?

No, it will not work that way. Because the camera is wired to the rearview mirror, the wires are not run down to the radio cavity. If you want the camera to display on the aftermarket radio, you'd have to splice an RCA into the video wiring in the mirror, then run it down to the radio.
