Re: What colour are the positive and negative wire colour for ducato 2004

Hi
I you wish to have the camera on whilst the ignition is on I would connect to the auxiliary socket power supply on the dash. Our camera is on all the time when the ignition is on as I use it as a rearview mirror (mounted in its place) as there is no view from inside the MotorHome with the original mirror. Vehicles get so close you can't see them from the side mirrors.
As the Truckies say "if you can't see my mirrors I can't see you"
From memory the wire feeding the middle connection on the back of the Auxiliary socket is logically the positive (red) while the side connection is earth (black) - it was ten years ago so can't remember the wire colors, but that's where I connected mine to.
Cheers

Nothing really - only cos I mistakingly bought the one with two cameras instead of one. So am going to use one as reversing aid (only powers on when reversing) and the other for rear view(powered on at all times).
There's is no need having both on all the time since I can only view one camera at a time on the monitor anyway.
