okay so it turns out that the teal color green wire is the power, so okay its all hooked up comes on in reverse BUT i have to manually select the back up camera button on my pioneer avic f900 bt, this kinda defeats the purpose of taping into the reverse lights power, it comes on when it is in reverse, but i want it to bypass what im doing at that moment gps, ipod etc. and show me what im backin up at somebody please help!

i could be mistaken (and this is a few pages back now...) but there should be a power wire coming out of your pioneer for your back up camera. im not sure on your deck, but on my no name deck, there is a power wire at the back of the deck. i assume you are supposed to use this one. i hope this helps.

When I hooked up mine I connected the power the the white wire with the green line. It could be more of a teal like you said. I ran the video cable up through the license plate light hole, along the bumper, through the right tail light and then up through the passenger side of the ride past the glove box and to the radio.
