    I know this has been covered many times but.... I have a 2017 SLR that I just replaced the stereo. The stereo shop that did it can not get the factory camera to work. They've followed instructions on here but still can't get video. Once you put the SS in reverse the screen goes black. Any ideas from the group???

    Go to a different shop.....if they don't know how to check if the camera is getting a reverse signal you are at a rookie shop. They need to pick up the reverse trigger from somewhere. (transmission, taillights, etc.....)

    Also possible they habe correct wire, but wrong polarity. Rever seen goes to 0 V when in reverse. You made need a relay to correct polarity, or some radios allow you to change input polarity (eg some pioneers etc). If you need the relay, clarion Mike has some posts on how to wire.

    Here is a schematic I posted up a while back:

    But, really if you have to explain all this to a stereo shop you should just drive away to a better qualified location.
