Backup Camera on 2014 ES model

Mon Sep 07, 2015 7:39 pm

Has anyone successfully installed a backup camera on a 2014 ES model?
I purchased a double din stereo with a backup camera but can't seem to find the backup camera wire on the car.
Is it possible the model just didn't come with the wire?
If not is there anything I can do to have power go on to to the wire when activating reverse on the shift?

At least on the US 2014 model, a backup camera wasn't even an option. Mitsubishi has different wiring harnesses based on the model and options you get. Unless the backup camera was part of the car originally, it doesn't have the wiring for a camera. You'd have to run it yourself (which isn't entirely too difficult. Getting it through the hatch would be the most difficult.)

I installed a back-up camera on my 2012 SE

As mentioned, none of the wiring is in the car - I had to run the video cable from the front to the back and a power wire from the reverse lights to power the system. Getting all of the cabling though the rear hatch was a bit of a task, but not as difficult as I expected it would be
