Easy install but doesn't show video

Bill from Fredericksburg, VA on 10/23/2017

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Everything wired up nicely in my 2015 Silverado 2500 HD with my Pioneer NEX AVIC-8100 radio but there is no video signal. The radio does recognize putting the truck in reverse and the screen shows the backup guides, but the screen is black. I've wired it and unwired it and rewired it twice.

Pros: Wires up easily with the instructions.

Cons: Doesn't show any video image on Pioneer NEX Avic-8100

Crutchfield response on 10/24/2017
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Bill to help him further. We'll either help him get the backup camera working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Works from Janesville, WI on 5/21/2016

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Item works as it should but video on a pioneer head unit isn't that clear.

Pros: Saves time and prevents cutting wires.

Cons: Doesn't mention a place to get a reverse input you might need/want for an easier install. Also some trucks the plug is actually behind the glove box.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was a very easy install. Plug in play with my new after market install. Gave it 4 stars because the camera is very dark. Does not come up as bright as factory was.

Pros: Easy Plug n play

Cons: Camera comes out very dark but works

For my new Z71 Colorado, plugged in and it works. What more can you ask form.

Pros: Like I said, for the price, it sure beats trying to solder in your wires manually

Cons: None

This adapter did not fit my 2015 Silverado 2500HD. I wanted it install a Clarion Stereo and keep my factory backup cam. My truck came equipped with a I03 and the plug is the wrong style.

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Features

GM Backup Camera Harness: The BACKUPCAM-3 harness is designed specifically for GMLAN29 vehicles that have a factory (OEM) installed back-up camera and displays its back-up image on the factory head unit's monitor. The BACKUPCAM-3 harness lets you retain your GM vehicle's factory back-up camera so it can be viewed through your newly installed aftermarket head unit.

Note: If your vehicle's factory backup camera image is displayed in the rear-view mirror, then you will not need this harness. The factory backup camera's image will continue to display on the rear-view mirror and cannot be integrated into an aftermarket head unit's display.

Vehicle Compatibility: The BACKUPCAM-3 is compatible with the following GMLAN29 vehicles:

Make Model Year
Chevrolet Colorado* 2015-up
Cruze* / Cruze Hatchback* 2016-18
