Pick the backup cam that's right for you

This Crux system supplies a module and a factory-compatible wiring harness that plugs into the back of your Ford radio. The backup camera is not included in this package.

Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.

What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)

What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.  

How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.

Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

Product Research

Features

Overview: Crux RVCFD-79 integration system allows you to add an after-market rear-view camera (not included) to select Ford and Lincoln vehicles equipped with a 4" Full Color Screen Radio. When the vehicle is put into reverse, the integration module will automatically switch the factory radio to the rear-camera display.

T-Harness: The included 12-pin t-harness interfaces at the back of the factory radio and provides an 8" pigtail that gets plugged into the integration module. The t-harness also includes a 16" female composite video plug, for use with just about any universal rear-camera, as well as the following bare ended wires:

  • White: Camera power output (+12 VDC / 500 mA max.)
  • Black: Camera ground
  • Green: VIM (Vehicle In Motion): Applying +12 V to this wire allows the rear-view camera to be displayed continually while the vehicle is not in reverse
Note: The White and Black camera power/ground wires will need to be extended from the dash to the rear of the vehicle where the camera will be mounted.

Integration Module: The RVCFD-79 integration module plugs into the included t-harness and gets tucked away in the dash behind the radio. As the "brain" of the system, it allows the factory radio to automatically switch its source to display the rear-view image when the vehicle is put into reverse.

Vehicle Compatibility: The RVCFD-79 is compatible with the following Ford and Lincoln vehicles equipped with a factory Ford 4" full color screen.

Q
What if my display is larger than 4"? will this still work to install a backup camera in my fiesta?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
