I am talking about the reverse switch in the car not the HU. I see the one on the HU.

Thanks

It's a red wire behind the panel just above the hood release lever:

This exactly what i did to my rav in order to get power to the camera. The location is great as it is already at the back. Again, for any source, always use a voltmeter. At least use the electrical wiring diagrams to figure things out.

It took me sometime to figure things on my own but now i am more comfortable reading the diagrams. However i am no expert.

I cant find any wiring diagrams. The site that you guys provided does not have 2004. Closest is 2001-2002.

The picture is for a different year as well. I need one for a 2004.

Thanks fr your help

Wouldn't you find more help in the 4.3 section? 4.2 is up to 2006 only.

Factory-ready camera wiring - what a dream world for a 2003 owner

Hey

Did you ever manage to sort it? Just looking to fit backup cam and sensors myself to my RAv 4.3 (2006)

Managed to get the wiring digram although may take me a while to figure things out so was just wondering if you had got any clarity on what you did in the end.

Also would it be ok to fix both the camera and the sensors on that backup tight? I did it on my Astra a while ago and it camera picture reminded me of a VHS tape that had been watched too many times!

Hi Guys,
Sorry I'm still confused about the post. I have a RAV4 2004 and want to install a backup camera - but I have no idea where to hook in order to make camera video goes on when in reverse. Where's the reverse gear/light wire located at for this vehicle and what color is it?
Where do you hook the ground wire from camera to? Can someone give a complete guide on how to do this? I've also tried to look into JuneBug manuals but I don't know exactly where to look to find reverse gear wire section.
Help!!

The red wire in the picture above is a positive +12 reverse wire for my 09. It's fed power through the male end of the plug
