I have just brought a DS5 auto that does not have a reverse camera, is there a plug point that a factory fitted reverse camera would plug into at the back so I can utilise the signal for a third party camera?

They tend to have a specific rear harness that the camera module and mini wiring plugs into which goes back to the Parking Assistance ECU and then onto the BSI and Head Unit. The parking assistance ECUs are specific dependent upon options.
