Tied up the loose-ends from the previous dash upgrades - installed the looms for the heated seats and park assist button. (Thanks to TommyZooom for these)

Darkside tempted me with the Black Friday 15% discount on powerflex, so ordered the 4× leaf bushes and 2× rear hanger bushes.

Also fit the washer fluid level sensor and swapped back to the stock front grille whilst I sort out some wrap for the All-Track one.

Hi Ben
Awesome van you have done a lot of great work on it mate.
I just wanted to ask if fitting the aftermarket camera was a pig of a job as i have the same head unit as you and had to buy an RCA adapter to Blue plug for the quad lock connector so i could plug my camera in. But when i select reverse i get the correct screen come up with "Look! Safe to move? but no picture?.
I dont really know whats happening and would appreciate it if you could give me a run down on how you fitted it and the correct coding. I am sure i coded it correctly as it works when i put it in reverse but just no picture comes up.

Thanks for the interest 👍

Sounds like I did the same as you have - bought an RCA adapter and depinned the two wires & repinned them into my existing blue plug (already had one in the back of the head unit - wired to something else).

The coding was a bit of a weird one, maybe that's where your issue is.
There were two options when selecting the reverse camera "type"; from memory they were "reverse" or "environmental".
I naturally assumed "Reverse" was the correct option, but it gave me the same issue as you describe - so I went back in and changed it to "Environmental", and it worked.

For the first week, every now & then it would give me the same black screen issue again, but after parking and turning the car off/on it would fix itself. Haven't had this issue for about 2 months though, so not sure what caused it initially.


If that doesn't make sense, I'll go out and get some screenshots of the coding.

Hi Ben
I have spoken to the person who codes my car and he is asking for a picture of the codes. If you could get that for me it would be appreciated. Thanks so much for your time i will be so relieved when this is actually working its been a nightmare. :shock:

So:
In Module 5F (Multimedia) I have Byte 19 - Bit 4 "on"
Image

In Module 10 (Parking Assistance) I have Byte 02 - Bit 4 "off" & Bit 5 "on". This gives the output of "Environmental camera installed", like I said before - if I set this to "Rear view camera installed" it doesn't work.. weirdly.

The upgraded stalks look great! What were they from and was the wiring all the same, i.e. did you swap the whole unit or strip the stalks down and swap them individually?
