2015 Wrangler + ILX-207 Stuck backup camera

Post by pprice » Wed Dec 26, 2018 2:54 pm

I did an install of an Alpine ILX-207 on a 2015 Wrangler Unlimited - automatic. The system has an aftermarket backup camera connected to the Direct Camera Input via a banana plug. The Maestro unit is flashed with RR-CHR01-DS (Firmware: ALP-RR(SR)-WR01-DS (512) (3.8))

Once everything was connected, it appeared to be working until we enabled the Aux video input on the system. Once that was done, it was 'stuck' on the backup camera screen. The only way to get it off the screen was to pull the orange/white "Reverse" pin from the 10-pin green "Vehicle Signals" connector to the Maestro. Once done, everything works except now we can't automatically display the backup camera when going into reverse (we have to push the 'camera' icon to show the backup camera.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? I plugged back in the OEM Radio (RHR) and the backup camera works fine.

Thanks

Paul

The camera was a tire mounted camera installed by the dealer when we bought the Jeep as a CPO - they indicated that they had to reflash the OEM (730n) radio. The connection to the radio was 2 wires/pins in the 26 pin connector (there were no other wires/pins on that connector) I replaced the 26 pin connector with a composite video cable to connect to the Alpine radio aux video input. I believe power for the camera must be wired in the back.

Just to confirm- what wire from the RR did you hook up to the orange/white on the radio; the solid orange wire, or the purple/white? It should be the purple/white from the RR connected to the radio's orange white. If this isn't hooked up this way, your camera would definitely be stuck on.

Dara,

I didn't make any changes to the pre-bundled WRA harness that was provided - Reverse / parking brake / etc. are already connected. I just hooked it up as-is other than finally removing the orange/white from the Green RR connector to get things working (without automatic backup camera switching). I'm not sure I understand where I would even make those connections. When you say 'what wire from the RR did you hook up to the orange/white on the radio', I'm confused - the connection goes straight from the RR to the Radio....so it's a single wire. Also, I cannot find a Purple/White wire anywhere (there is a Blue/White wire).

I'm looking at pages 12, 14, and 15 of this manual https://www.quadratec.com/sites/default ... IM_r13.pdf

quick question, the Orange/White from the Alpine, Check with a multimeter and see if that wire has voltage on it all the time or only when in reverse (it should only have voltage on it in reverse).
