Re: How To: Reverse Backup Camera for SV Model w/ OEM Telema

Sun Jul 28, 2013 10:23 pm

So I've read through the entire post and I'm still trying to figure out if anyone has done this successfully on a 2013 SV with the OEM style parts. I'd like to do this mod, but I'd rather not run into any surprises along the way, so if anyone can provide a step-by-step of the installation process for the 2013 SV (or just a list of differences from the other notes) it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Same here. Didn't think I needed it until I had it :-) As you say, I don't want a car without one now. The decent size Nav screen in the LEAF makes this a very useful feature.

I find it very useful for parallel parking, not for the maneuver, but to know I am just an inch away from the vehicle behind. Saves having to 'nudge' the car behind. Then you can pull forward with maximum distance in front to straighten it out. Once you've had one of these things, you'll always want it. Just like broadband :-)

Where are you trying to hook it up at? Have you removed the trim panel at the drivers side "C" pillar? To get it to go into reverse camera mode you have to ground the camera enable wire.



I am powering it directly off a shop supply at 6.2volts
and then running wires up to pins 40 and 60 on the nav head (I already have pin 58 grounded to get the back up to display in R)

Note: doing the same thing with my NON oem camera I get picture just fine but trying to hook up the OEM camera Part # 28442-3NH0B I get a black screen with only guide lines. aka NO Video from the camera.

So I am trying to figure out what's up and verify what color wire is what.



According to the service manual 6 volts is correct. I believe that white and red are the power and black and yellow are the video signal. One thing: I used camera P/N 28442-3NH0A.


Hi, jelloslug
I came across the same problem as Skyffej, I ordered the OEM camera P/N 28442-3NH0A, and tried to hook the wires directly to the nav head, I cannot get any image except a black screen with guide lines when I put in reverse. (I think I correctly ground pin 58)
Do you know which color of these 4 wires is which?

red (power +) ?
black (video -) ?
yellow (video +) ?
white (power -) ?

Should it be supposed to work if I hook the two video wires into pin 40, 60, and two power wires to 39, 59 ?

According to the service manual:

39-- Red (camera V+)
40-- Red (camera signal +)
58-- Black (reverse enable ground)
59-- White (camera V-)
60-- Shield (camera signal -)

Do you know which wire is which from the camera ? I`ve got 4 wires from camera P/N 28442-3NH0A, red, black, yellow, white, I don`t know how to hook them up.

Re: How To: Reverse Backup Camera for SV Model w/ OEM Telema

******all of the above was for getting ready to install an oem camera.....

Okay so I ordered a OEM camera two listed I picked the one that said it works with the SL
I assume that both would work with probably just different connectors ???
I got it the other day and there are four wires in an eight position connector (the other positions are blank)
Black
red
White
Yellow

Any idea on what goes to what ? (power input, signal out etc....)
Also can some one confirm that the camera only use 6.2volts for input power ?

I tired connecting it up but can't get an image on the Nav unit, keep in Mind I CAN get an image on the nav unit using a non OEM camera ! ***this is driving me nuts*****
either I got a bad OEM camera or I broke it trying to connect it up...... OR I am not connecting up the right pins to the right thing

I have two wires running all the way to the nav unit pins (40 camera input video) and 60 camera shield for video
If I connect my non oem camera to those wires I get a picture just fine
if I connect the oem camera I get nothing but black, I think I have tired all different combinations

Any body out there done this on a 2013 SL without the Premium package ?
ANy help would be great ..........


Hi, Skyffej
Did you solve this problem? I cannot make the OEM camera work either.

I tested, there is about 6.2 volt between the power lines, I assumed it is. (I hook the power lines of the camera to pin 39, 59)
