I have an 08 escape and put in a dash cam with a rear camera with parking assist, the rear camera works in split screen mode but I can’t seem to find the wiring to energize the override to rear camera parking mode. I traced back the wires from the reverse lights, thinking I could just attach to the + and engage that mode from the reverse lights… I couldn’t find that wire as they both read voltage… any workarounds?
Thanks

The 12v to the backup lights is green with a blue stripe. It goes from the BJB (where the reverse lights relay is) to a splice (if you have PAM/OEM parking sensors, electrochromatic rear view mirror, or OEM backup camera) then back to the backup lights.

I have a 2004 Escape with reverse lights and reverse polarity wiring.
Thankfully, my Panasonic radio had a reverse polarity option for its rear camera connection.
Otherwise, I would have had to install a device to reverse the polarity of the wiring.
