#421525 Reverse Camera Trigger

Posted by vince_13 on 21 October 2014 - 07:55 PM

yeh 1.5mm is plenty, the camera wont be pulling that much current, (i presume there is a fuse protecting the radio anyway)




#421519 Reverse Camera Trigger

Posted by vince_13 on 21 October 2014 - 07:50 PM

thanks for your replys, I guessed it had to go to the reverse switch somehow , would it be possible to route the extended purple wire to the rear of the car to the live reverse light wire where I connected the camera and connect it there ? 

 

thats where i picked up my feed from, (although im not using a sony headunit)

 

as said before get a really long wire and then tap into the loom under the car behind the bulb and test first, then you can lift the carpet in the boot and there is a rubber grommit on both sides just pick the grommit on the side your reverse bulb is and wire down to the bulb

hi hassen great setup, how easy was the door speakers to swap?

 

as you have 2 amps 1 for your sub and the other is that to power the crossovers you have in the doors? is the second amp necessary?

the pop rivets down the left hand side (front facing) are prone to corrode and cause leaking, (on the mk2.5 anyway)

 

i had mine replaced with an aftermarket rad which had welded mounts on instead of the pop rivet mounts

just to clear up and confusion, the plug on the right in the image below is what most people doing this mod will need, as the part on the left in the image already comes with a new LHD clear lens

with regards to polarity issues etc the pins are number 1 & 2 so a simple volt meter check will verify which pin is positive IIRC pin1 is positive

Sounds about right for ford

#357437 Attempt To Fit Rear View Camera Went Up In Smoke

Posted by vince_13 on 27 April 2014 - 10:22 AM

me 2

 

i have the same rear view camera, connected between the reverse light and powered from the number plate light, the only difference being im viewing my image through my CD/Stereo so should be suited to the job in theory

 

great camera and nice image (if you keep the lens clean)




#349881 Vinnie's Project Log

Posted by vince_13 on 01 April 2014 - 09:21 PM

Good news I think I have found a reputable bodyshop finally, the ST spoiler and rear tow eye cover are currently being painted and will pick that up on Saturday

Just received my CMAX clear high level brake light with connector and wiring, which I hope will fit in place of the ST brake light in the spoiler

Small patch of rust on the drivers door will then be sorted finally

well not touched the car in a while, the task now is to get all the bodywork done (proving harder than i thought)

 

however im picking up a ST spoiler and once the front and rear bumpers are sorted and the rust on my door sill hopefully that will be all the bodywork sorted, ready for lowering

 

(thats the plan) :D

 

also working on some side projects being the interior light switches leds, the dual reverse mod and also the engine pipework




#329765 Interior Lights Stay On Following Windscreen Replacement

Posted by vince_13 on 06 February 2014 - 11:56 AM

Thry removed the light to acces the earth strip that is bolted near the aerial base, I presume this is for the heating elements,

They left the old earthing strip in my car and fitted a new 1 hence why removing the light

i cant belive im reading this, i thought i was the only 1 and an isolated case

 

i was too a victim to there "workmanship" however in my case they had somehow blown the fuse when removing the light unit

 

in your case have you had a look at the black button slider on the reverse of the unit, it should pivot on 2 white pins, it may have come off center and not be moving correctly

recently installed this air filter and well impressed with the results, much smoother gong through the revs now not so much difference in noise (may have my music too loud haha)
