    Sean shows us how to install a backup camera with a Lilliput monitor pre-wired for backup camera connectivity. These special Lilliput monitors have a wire (usually green in color) that extrudes from the back of the circuit board. When this wire receives +12V, the monitor automatically switches from your PC input to AV2, where your camera is connected. So, if you connect this wire to your backup lights and your camera to AV2, when you shift into reverse, the display will switch to your camera input.

    Sean boots up his car computer for the first time. Be sure to make sure all positive wiring is connected to the appropriate accessory or capped with electrical tape before you reconnect the positive power cable to your battery. With any luck, your computer should boot properly the first time. Sean's enthusiasm on the video is testament to the difficulty associated with any car computer installation and his relief is apparent when everything works properly.

    Sean goes over all of the wires that go into the dash from the computer, amplifier, and other peripherals. The BoomzBox is also installed into the dash behind the monitor. This is secured to the frame of the dash with adhesive tape and large zip ties. Backup camera wiring is extended to the backup light. When this wire gets +12V, the Lilliput monitor will automatically switch from PC to AV2, displaying the backup camera through this input. A vehicle specific wiring harness eliminates the need to splice into your factory wiring.

  5. Car Computer Install: Wiring The Car

    Sean Clark, from mp3Car, shows us how the various components in the vehicle are wired. Getting power cables through the firewall is one of the more difficult aspects of any install. In this case, drilling through the firewall of the Altima in the wheel well proves to be the best option. Be sure to use plenty of fire-retardant adhesive on these holes once the wires are fed through. Running the power cables to the trunk can be done along the sill of the driver door. Use care when prying the panel loose. A trim removal tool is recommended to prevent scratching of your OEM parts. The backup camera switching wire and accessory turn on wire are also run along the driver door sill. Wires that aren't associated with powering any device are run along the passenger side sill to prevent interference. These include the front speaker wires, an HDMI video cable, a USB touch cable, a USB iPhone cable, a USB OBD-II cable, a USB cable for an aux input, and a microphone 3.5mm audio cable.
