There’s usually a threaded bar with the cable in the centre to bolt on to a surface, or some sort of bracket to screw to.


I've fitted the 6v camera, but it's not working..

I've tested with a multimeter and notice that actually there is no voltage on the red and black wires.

I have activated the camera within "developer mode" so I'm wondering if there is another setting I need to change, that would give the 6v needed to the red & black wires ??

Any advice anyone can give would be most gratefully received..

If you do not have the 6v, then, chances are, the wiring from the headunit is not in place. You may have to run the 4 required wires from the headunit plug to the rear of the car.

I think this is mentioned somewhere in the thread.

Two things:
Now you have turned the camera on and you put it in reverse, do you get a message on the screen?
And Did you have it in reverse when testing for power?

hi, have fitted 6v number plate light camera to 1.5dci 65 plate kadjar. All fitted without any issues (so far). Darrenh's wiring guide + the guide to remove the boot trim on here was great. cheers. I crimped butt terminals rather than soldering.

I have downloaded ddt4all with database from here:

and picked up elm327 usb cable from ebay
ELM327-Interface-USB-Cable-Suitable-for-DDT4ALL item 274067691348

planning to give ddt4all a go over the weekend to see if I can get it working.
