I have the 4.3 rav4 2010, still same can wires from the car though.

Car black = camera red
Car red = camera black
Car white= camera yellow
Car (no color wire) = camera white

My car already had a backup installed cam so I just spliced into the large black wire under the passenger scuff plate. My head unit was also spliced in using the same camera color wires.

The wire connections are in the photo.

Can you help me with adding a a camera to a 2011 RAV$ limited. I see the space on the license plate to hold the camera, but no idea if the car is porewired for me or do I need to run the cables all the way to the front of the car. The image that you have attached...where is that location in the car?

Do you mean
Car Red = camera white
Car (no color wire) = camera black

I'm looking at the 4.3 Parking Assist wiring diagram, and the camera connector, connection Q13. Everything else matches up, except those two wires being transposed.

thats fine IF you wanted to connect wire Up Front as indicated, But if you didn't want to run another wire to that , Since All the other wires are in the Back Rear Rt,
I Want to Make my Connection by the Rt Tail Light !
Is it Still a Red Wire at this Location ? or is it Yellow?

Only wire that should run the length of the vehicle is the video cable. Power stays at the back and the signal goes to your head unit.

I tapped the power socket back there myself to have constant power so I can switch to it on demand rather than only in reverse. Recommend that if your head unit supports that feature.

Where you connect the red wire in the dash for the reverse signal is there a 12volt positive and ground on that harness or around there to connect to? My mirror needs them and would be nice to keep all connections in that spot.

I hooked ground to a spot next to the door and 12volt switch to this white wire. Only thing is when I turn the key on the mirror green light flickers for a sec then goes on and then brightens. I'm wondering if the camera not being hooked up causes it to do funny things. Either way when the camera comes in well see if it goes away.

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.
Help!!

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.
