    Default Radio Removal Tricks?

    My backup camera has not been working for a while so I would like to remove the radio to troubleshoot connections. Any tips/tricks for radio removal? Thanks!

    check your backup switch first

    Start car and put it in reverse see if you have backup lights

    My backup camera didn't work, so I wiggled the wiring from it along the rear clam and also played around with the connector, which fixed it.

    It was definitely the reverse switch, as willy suggested - for the first step. Unfortunately, if I short the wires together the radio goes to the reverse camera view, but no picture comes up. I think my next problem to fix is that it appears that I don't have power going to the camera.

    where is the reverse switch located? I have the same problem, though some buffoon has cut the wires. But i have to start with switch first, as i have no backup lights either (i do have taillights).

    Excellent thanks! Asking new question in another thread about headlights.

    I’m still interested in removing my radio. I have a backup camera on my daily and want one on my Q1 plus I’d like to upgrade to a nex8200. The stock radio isn’t that good and the touch screen is terrible.

    What camera era have you guys used and where and how did you mount it?
