I tried to install a backup camera in my 01crv but the aftermarket camera doesn’t work. It works when I connect it directly to the battery.?

I put the car in reverse and the light gets 12 volts the lead coming off the lights and going to the cam gets 12 volts but the cam doesn’t work.

    Wire it to the lead feeding the lights 12v and make sure the camera ground connection is good.

      The cable that plugs into the camera is getting 12 volts when I put it in reverse. But the camera still doesn’t work

    You are supposed to tie them in with the reverse gear selector.

    You ARE NOT connecting it properly OR measuring voltage correctly.
