HiTekLoLife, I was thinking of doing the same thing (running my own cables all the way from Driver to camera), let me know how you're doing :-)

Thanks,

Jean-Marc

I've run a wire that has four separate wires inside of it directly from the drivers kickpanel to the back hatch. I connected M21 pins 24 & 25 to camera Red & White, 8 & 9 to the camera Black and other color. I've grounded M21 pin 7. I DID replace the hatch harness so that the camera has a place to plug into. So, I've spliced my wire into the new hatch harness. (I purchased the second harness that goes between the hatch and the C-Pillar, but that just seemed like a huge project to run that baby through the side of the hatch...)

I have the screen turning blank with the guides - when I put it into reverse... But no video.

It's been -20 to 15 degrees max (Fahrenheit) in Minnesota lately, so it's finding heated garage space for me and that's not always easy. I'm way to dedicated to this project. Should really wait for summer...

Are we sure that 24 & 25 supply the power?
Any ideas why I may not be getting any luck with the video?

My next project is to test the theory there there is no power being supplied and to possibly bring an analog video source and see if that will show up on the screen. (but that sounds like a nice summer project...)

Any thoughts will be welcome.

Paul

I gave a copy of an earlier post regarding this to the service department of my dealer and asked if they were willing to do it for 1 1/2 labor as the previous OP's dealer did it for three hours.

They have been sitting on it because there is some ''rumor" that this may actually come out as a dealer installed option for the earlier cars without it.

Will have to see if anything hatches!

Don't want to be negative except I find that mods progress more rapid when set up as open source projects and involve multi-thinkers, i.e., the Leaf EVSE project which grew out of this forum:

https://code.google.com/p/open-evse/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

There are many decisions involved with dealers and car makers; they must assess liability, policy, profit and risk, etc.
Only takes one 'NO' to sink an idea.

You might consider setting up an open source project; there is much discussion in the media about replacing rear view mirrors with cameras along with the side view mirrors as a future expansion. The project might become very popular.

Thanks for the info
Try a PM to "greengate"; lf that doesn't work out, you may want to try hunting around in this thread for someone who is actively working on the idea and PM them.

I used the parts list from that one post that someone did with the OEM part numbers. I did NOT need the actual rear hatch harness because that SL already had the 4 camera wires and connector at the hatch where the camera would plug in to. The very first time I put the car into reverse, it worked like a charm.

OK, so my dealer has put in the camera and hatch on my 2013 SL but can't make it work... was this just Plug and Play or did you have to do anything else?

Thanks,
Chuck

I just wanted to thank the OP and the other posters that gave out such useful information.

I have a 2011 Leaf with no backup camera but was hoping that this tutorial would work for me too. I can tell you that all the harnesses worked for me and the new handle and camera fit the 2011. My biggest problem was that there was absolutely no wiring from the rear quarter panel to the HU. In fact I should have gone to the plug at the radio first and noticed that there were no wires in pins 56-60 but I didn't and rather than be stuck wasting money and the time I already had into the install, I used the OP's method but with OEM parts.

Rather than buying pins though, I reused three wired pins from the old harness at the rear hatch and put them in the plug at the radio. Everything seems to be working though including the lines that move with steering.

Thanks again.
