Power for Mirror with LCD for rearview camera

Postby IronbearRH - December 11th, 2016, 2:43 am

Hello,

I recently installed a backup camera on my 2012 Ford Escape with Moonroof, I have the camera working perfectly being tapped into the reverse light. However, I cannot figure out where to tap in for power for the mirror - I removed the dome lights and trying to figure out if I can tap into the power source there or the power for moon roof. Does anyone know which wires I can use as positive wire and neutral wire?

Ground to a body bolt.
I'll check my splice and ground bolt locations tonight at home

There is a blue hot wire coming up the Driver's A-Pillar for the moon roof. That is hot in Key-On and until 10 minutes after key turns to off.

This is from a 2011 Model Year, but should be close enough.
