2016 Jeep Renegade Backup Camera

Post by brandon_in_kc » Fri Feb 09, 2018 2:13 am

I installed a Kenwood DMX 7704S in a 2016 Renegade with the Maestro RR. Everything seems to work except the backup camera dont switch when I put it in reverse. I installed the latest firmware. The camera works when I push the "camera" button on the Kenwood, I even double checked the "interrupt" is turned on. Any thoughts?

Is the vehicle a manual transmission?

Yes. Manual transmission. I have since experimented by unhooking the camera wire from the Maestro and applying 12 volts, and the screen does flip to the camera.

That makes sense. In manual transmission, the gear position is not sent on the data lines, so we are unable to generate the reverse interrupt for you. In this case, you will need to hook your radio's purple/white to the reverse wire of the car.

Ok, thank you. So I get to figure out how the factory stereo got the reverse signal or run a wire all the way to the lights. If anyone has other thoughts on this please let me know.
