2004 VUE 3.5L
2008 AURA XE
Default where to pick up pos, ground, and reverse lights under dash

2004 V6 Vue
Rear view mirror has come apart and won't stay up in position anymore. So, bought a new mirror with rear view camera. I need to find convenient positive and ground and signal for the back up lights under the dash. Positive and ground will be easy. But, where can I find the wiring that goes to the tail lights? The 12v to the reverse lights will trigger the rear view camera and make the mirror go into display mode. Any ideas?

Thx

Why not just run a wire to the tail lights? You're going to have to run a wire to the back for the camera anyway.

Yeah, probably what I'll do. But, if I could find where the wire bundle to the back runs I could shorten a wire. No biggie. Just like my wiring to be as tidy as possible. I already have a junction where I pull my trailer hitch wires off of the left tail light. Will probably pick it up.there.
