Ds5 reversing camera problem

Post by Voolten » 20 Apr 2019, 19:47

Hi,

I have got a slight problem with my reverse camera on 2013 Ds5. Sometimes when I put the car in reverse, the camera is having like a split image where bottom of the car show on top half of the screen, and top part shows on the bottom half of the screen. Few times the camera did not work at all, I just had an image of the car displayed on the screen when reversing. Does anyone knows how to access the camera cables so I can check them over? Many thanks.

Hi and welcome.

It’s quite possible there is water damage or interference. The camera is independently connected to a short cable that plugs into the main harness as you can see here/

Thank you for the quick reply. What would be the best way to access the main harness? There are 2 covers in the boot of the car on each side and there are cables being hidden inside. I know some of the connections are for the lights, but I am not sure if any of them are for the camera. Many thanks for all the help.

Pop your VIN up here and I’ll see if there is anything else I have on the wiring.
