    Reverse Camera Help??

    I recently added a reverse camera to my astra, wired up to the parking sensors what are connectect to the reverse light I think, It all works fine when the car ignition is on without the engine running, but when the car is running, it all comes on, loads up the the tv ect... but no picture most of the time, Does anyone know what this can be, Someone told me it could have something to do with the fuse being to small for it all to be running on? Thanx in advance

    It could be a few things tbh. May well be that the canbus is picking up a fault as the resistance on the rear lights is not correct. It could also be inteference from a power cable on the signal cable from the camera. Do your reverse sensors still work?

    Another thing could it not working be linked to the handbrake being off?

    Parking sensors work fine all the time

    It works with handbrake on or off when the engine isn't running, Doesn't work when its on or off with it running tho but the screen still loads up but comes up no signal

    I think the wires are just connected to the parking sensors wires, My mate done it but can't seem to figure out the problem either

    Sounds like either poor earth of the inteference from the power cables may be effecting the signal.
