I have already posted this in the electronics section with no responses...probably due to the fact that not nearly as many people look in there so I am reposting it here hoping to get some help..
So I have the 2008-10 tailgate installed on my truck and have just ordered the tailgate handle with the camera hole from Tasca Ford parts. I also have an Eclipse double din touch screen that I will hook the camera to.
I already had the OEM camera that I ordered from ebay a while back..
FORD F150 F250 REAR BACKUP CAMERA FOR REAR VIEW MIRROR: eBay Motors (item 140466038913 end time Nov-13-10 21:10:04 PST)
The part number from the camera as shown in the pics below...AG1T-19G490-AA...
I am curious if this camera will work in the tailgate handle? Is this the same camera that they come with? I have seen a bunch of different ones, some being with a metal housing. This one I have doesnt have any type of mounting system.
Also it has 6 pins straight across and ford wont sell me the wiring harness separately. Does anyone happen to have a diagram for which pin does what? This is all I really need to know..I assume one of the pins is for power and one of the pins is ground, which I will just wire into an outfitter switch most likely.
Then there is the video portion which I have no idea how many pins that is. If I can find this out I will just solder the wires onto the correct pins and fill it in with epoxy rather than buying the harness which appears I cant get anyways.
I had Ford run the part number on the camera and it comes back to a 2010 Ford Taurus(weird because it said it was for a f150/f250 emblem cam but I guess Ford uses the same cam).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
