Guys. I have a RAV4 2000 and want to install a backup camera - i ordered from Amazon. It comes with the monitor and back up 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.

Camera ground wire goes to car body (ground). You need to draw + power from the reverse light to power the camera (camera + red wire). You also need to trigger the head unit to switch to the backup camera display, you do this by connecting the reverse wire on the head unit to the reverse light + wire. Most head units and backup cameras work this way.
