Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, 03 EXT rear view camera in Cadillac Escalade Forums; looking to add a rear view camera to my truck
will the stock head unit display/accept camera input ?
I've seen people drill a hole in the bumper to the left of the license plate or use the spare tire key slot. You could put it in the tow hitch or they sell a rear view mirror with a tiny 3 inch screen in it
ideally i would like to put it in the angled down part of the tailgate, flushmount, does anyone have any exp trying to put one there? enough space ? internally?
also, i am installing a kenwood head unit , bought the harness for gm and steering controls, is there a tutorial anywhere here to look thru ?
I don't know about the camera mount
But the radio install should be easy as the wires on the interface should be color coded to the ones on the radio
As far as getting the radio in the dash
Tilt the steering wheel as low as it will go
Then put the truck in first(hold the brake) and remove the dash bezel (I start at the right lower corner)
The factory radio is held in with three screws you will need a 7mm socket to remove them the rest is just unplug the harnesses
yea i am able to remove factory head unit, not really getting the gmos stuff....
any ideas on how that tailgate beveled trim comes off ?
ALSO... the factory antennae is different from the kenwood... is there an adapter sold for that as well ? tech didnt tell me about this one....
There is a adapter for the antenna since the factory connection is smaller then aftermarket radios antenna connection I ran into this issue when I installed a aftermarket radio in my grandmas Buick
I got it at Walmart (it was included with the harness but you can buy one separately)
Gmos interface should have instructions but the wires should be color coded the same as the radio
