Brown = Ground and the Black/purple stripe = reverse +12v.

I wired the camera to Brown = Ground and the Black/purple stripe = reverse +12v. Camera only works when the engine is off and as soon as i turn on the engine and put in reverse its blank. Any suggestions?

Yes i looked at the thread about installing a rear cam. It seems im not getting enough juice to the rear cam with the engine is on. I going to try an automotive relay to see if that will work.

I got it working with a 4 pin automotive relay. The camera wasn't getting enough voltage when the engine was running. Thanks to Sarge and Simon for answering my questions with the install. Later on i will make a separate thread with pics and a full review of the Dynavin d99 Android.

Here is one crappy pic I have. I tucked everything in so its all hidden.

I just bought a $6 4-pin automotive relay at Autozone and use it to channel a constant 12v.
I used the pin configuration:

Pin #30: Constant 12v source (I just tapped to the yellow wire for the Dynavin I had to connect to the battery.)

Pin #85: Ground source (I just ran a wire and bolted to on one of the tail light bolts)

Pin #86: Switch source (I connected this to the black/violet wire from the tail light harness.)

Pin #87: The device you trying to power (I connected this to the red wire to the reverse camera)

Hope this helps people trying to install a reverse camera.
