    Installed an eRapta ert01 on my 05. Ran it to my new Pioneer 1400nex head unit using an in-line fuse, and everything was fine.

    About a week later it started only working intermittently.

    Fast forward to a few days ago and it died completely.

    Just for giggles I checked the in-line fuse, and everything looked fine. Got a bunch of fuses laying around so I replaced it anyways. Camera works fine now.

    I honestly don't think the fuse was blown, but has anybody had something similar happen to them?

    If it was one of the glass tubes, those fuses are awful. Especially the cheap one’s that get shipped in cheap electronics.

    It is just your run of the mill mini auto fuse. Purchased a whole set of 5-50amp fuses back when my subaru was blowing fuses left and right.

    Well here’s the update: camera worked for another day the stopped again. Haven’t checked the fuse yet, but is a 5amp fuse right for a backup camera? Or could it be my ground? I grounded it to the metal on the trailer hitch plug thing.
