I cant find where to hook up the back up sensor wire from the kenwood dnx8120 to tell the hu turn on the view from the camera.. I would not like to tap into a factory wire if I can help it.. I rather us the wire harness instead to make my connection.. Please help..

    maybe this will help.. you will have to run a wire and tap into this but its easier then going all the way to the light...

    Set the DMV to 12 volts DC. If the multimeter is not multi ranging, set the dial to 20 volts or less.

    Red test lead is positive and the black lead is negative on your meter.
