Powering my backup camera...
I recently purchased a backup camera for my 2007 Jeep Patriot. Its the kind that screws into your license plate. I'm not very good at electrical work, but my roommate is, so he helped me wire it. As of now, I have it powered by the reverse lights, so the camera only works when the car is in reverse. I would rather have it where the camera is always powered. My radio allows me to access the camera whenever I want, and I would like to be able to use this option. We tried powering the camera through the tailgate speakers and the cabin light, but neither had enough power to support the camera. Does anyone know of anywhere else to power the camera so it will always be on?
