If, for instance, the $2,000 uConnect unit stopped working and they get in there and discover that someone had installed a non-factory backup camera you better hope you're dealing with a mod friendly dealer or you'll be paying out of pocket for a new unit.

I have an aftermarket JVC HU and installed an Alpine camera on mine.
I mounted it with the bracket and the 3M adhesive on my rear bumper centered under the spare.

2013 JK Unlimited Rubicon
No warranty problems...ever...so don't let it stop ya from doing what ya want...
if adding accessories voided your warranty...mine would be long gone...instead the techs play with my jeep...

|JKVet||This is only true regarding the systems tinkered with. They can not dissolve the warranty over a modification.|

Reading through the posts and please correct me if wrong.
Mopar makes an install kit costing $200+ yet wires direct to Alpine NAV systems. You still need to dealership to flash (rest computer) to turn on backup camera.
Or, you can go direct to Apline and order Alpine HCE-C115 Rear View Camera $120 and installs directly for half the price. Yet you still need dealer to flash computer.
Couple other companies listed in previous posts mention $200+ systems requiring splicing into reverse lights, accessory wires and ignition sources. But, they work and have positive reviews above.
Can anyone point me in a proper direction? Would like to wire this up before the weekend if possible. Thanks in advance and please correct anything I missed.

|WranglerJA||Anyone in SF Bay Area who has done this? Im very non technical and would appreciate help or who to go to. Nice upgrade!!|

Pat and his crew at Fields Auto were able to get a backup camera working great on my 2014 Unlimited Sahara - it's a manual 6 speed. No issues with it whatsoever, and it looks great! Very nice to have this done at the dealership!
Just one more reason to go visit Pat!

|dspud||Has anyone successfully used Lockpick on a manual 2012 JKU? I am really wanting rear view camera capability. Any ideas without changing out my factory nav system?|

Here's what I got: camera side connector, new wiring with pigtails, crimps, and shrink tubing. If you need the radio-side connector, there's a repair package for that as well. Just search using the link above.

Just to put a period on my problem, it turns out I had a bad connector at the camera. After much searching, I found a repair kit from Mopar, part #68032364AA. Spliced all four wires, added new connector and I'm up and running. Just in case anyone else has wiring issues, here's a great site:

On the back-up camara side.
The one nice thing about Lockpick is that it is pretty straight forward, and that everything is pre-wired with multiple options.
It has the following power leads:
*Reverse cam (only sends power to camera when vehicle is in reverse or if you manually select the camera by pushing the UConnect button twice).
*Baby/Front/Left/Right cam (same as reverse cam)
Plus a ground lead, 3 RCA video inputs (rear cam, front/left cam, right/baby cam), and a set of AV RCA(left/right/video) inputs and outputs so you can input a signal from an external source, or output a signal to an external monitor.

|supercazzola||I think black screen comes with programming the code that a camera is present, and having radio setting that it is present. Black screen (with text) means lack of video signal returning from camera, on a radio told that / setup for a camera installed (hence reason radio overlays the text).|

I know I need a tool to release the pins, can someone let me know what it's called?
