    I have a Pyle PLCM10 License plate mount rear view camera. It has 2 wires and 1 video cable. I know where the video cable goes but where do i connect the other 2 wires. 1 wire is black with a white stripe and has a fuse link connected to it which i would assume is the power wire and the other wire is all black so I would assume it is the ground. I would like to connect the power to the reverse lamp but don't know which wire on the truck is the power wire for the reverse lights. Also, i have a purple/black wire off the back of my Pioneer AVHP4000 that tells me to connect it to the reverse signal. Not really sure what that means.
    Any help would be gladly appreciated
    Thanks,

    If you pull a taillight out, then you should be able to disconnect either a plug or a socket at the reverse light, then just use a multimeter to see which terminal goes 12V when the backup lights come on. To get the backup lights on park somewhere flat, set the ebrake, then shift into reverse with the ignition on but the engine off.

    Once you figure out which backup light wire is which you can trace it back down the harness if need be and tap into it.
