Hopkins Rear View Camera Installation - 2001 Ford Excursion

Today on this 2001 Ford Excursion, we are going to show you how to install the rear view camera system part number HM60195VA. The first thing we want to do before we get started is to go ahead and take all of the components out of the packaging. There are three different pieces that we are going to be using here to hook up our system. The first part is our new license plate mounting bracket which holds not only our back up sensors but our rear view camera as well. Inside the cab, we will be mounting our new camera. And in between the two we have this long lead of wiring harness. The red wire on this we are going to hook into the reverse light on the vehicle. Then the black wire is going to be grounded to the vehicle. So we are going to start at the rear of the vehicle and go ahead and figure out how we are going to hook into the reverse wire on the vehicle. Normally you would go ahead and hook in behind the taillights. However, this particular vehicle does have a factory installed tow package and this tow package does have a reverse wire hooked into it. So we are actually going to tap into there. In fact, all of the wires of the tow package up and around, there is actually a disconnect point right behind the license plate area. So I am going to go ahead and disconnect there and go ahead and wire my wires in. So what I have done is actually take the connector here and I popped it off of its mounting clip. And, it is hard to see here, but there is a release on the top side of that. If you press that down and pull away, you can separate the two pieces. Now what I can do is take the wired end and go ahead and bring it out underneath the vehicle so that it is easier to work with. 1:27 more
