Hi,
Did you copy the pin orientation or modified it some other way? I copied the pin orientation but had to buy another cable with an angled connector. Could you provide a picture of the pin/wires? Unfortunately, I don't have any available. Or give some more details?

Did you also have to do any coding for it to work? No.
Also what about routing the wire for the camera? Was it easy to do? It was easy but I had to remove the licence plate and center panel of the rear bumper Where u ended it putting the camera? Between the licence plate lights (see the picture).


Im going to make the purchase today Good luck! :)

Thank you appreciate your time

Thank you for replying. Can you provide the link for the angle connector? Got all the stuffs but haven't got around to install it yet. Do i need some crimp tool also?

I don't have a link available.

Here you can see the problem. The connector should be angled (= turned 90 degrees) to fit.

I have a 2015 model i wonder if the connections are the same? So where did you find the angle connector? Just wondering. Was it ebay?

Thank you
