Retrofit DS7 reversing camera?

Post by Longbeach »

Hi All. Saw and awesome deal on a DS7 performance line lease and loved the interior yesterday in the DS “salon” :-D

Disappointing though not to get a reversing camera on the Performance line - not sure I can go back to using mirrors and beeps now. I saw a kit on Ali-express and there is blank in the tailgate.

I guess the cabling wouldn’t be there already, but does anyone know if retrofitting a camera to a DS7 has been done or is possible?

Appreciate any help as I’d love to get the car.

Thanks!

No, not possible using existing wiring loom - they are all different depending on options and also dependent upon Head Unit type and options.

Basically, you will need to find an aftermarket kit that has a separate camera, wiring and a way of displaying it. Be careful not to interfere with any CAN wiring or you will potentially cause problems with other systems.

Something like what 'The Ace' did on his C5:
