Unhappy

Today’s lesson:

Just because your connectors and receptacles look identical doesn’t mean the wires are the same.

hey guys, brand new poster here. I have an 07 IS 350, non-ML with Nav. i've been reading endless threads and posts on how to hack the inputs to splice in a video feed (dvd player, ps2, etc.) it seems you need 3 things:

1. audio - aux input in center console
2. video - posted in several threads (http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-2nd-gen-2006-2013/251335-official-hijack-your-rear-camera-input-how-to-diy.html)
3. power - ??

for step 1, is there a way to wire the audio so that you still leave the aux input free for an ipod or other device?

for step 2, how do you actually connect these wires to an RCA plug (or something that you can hook up to a conventional dvd player)?

for step 3, how do you power the unit (dvd player, ps2, etc.)?

sorry for maybe asking some obvious questions, but i'd like to get all my info before i start choppin up my car. thanks!

Hey man im workin on mine at the moment.. trying to throw my xbox 360 in there.. what you gotta do is

on the J51 connector.. there is a red and white wire.. you gotta use those and connect them to one end of a spliced Yellow RCA cable.

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/showthread.php?t=251335

as for the power of the dvd player or ps2.. im going to be using a power inverter.. you can either plug it in your cigarrette lighter and then plug in the ps2 power cord to it.. or if you want a hidden job you can splice the wire's of the power inverter and connect them to the back of the ciggarette lighter where the wires are.. and hide the inverter somewhere behind the dashboard/glove box.. and run the wires for the ps2 so its all hidden.

It Would Be Nice If You Can Make It Work From The Auxilery Button

I know this is an old thread...but just wanted to make sure my wiring is right before I throw everything together. I bought a SPDT relay (pn# 275-0248) and a simple switch from radio shack. I have my proposed wiring diagram attached.



The orange wire is only tapped and from the tap, connected to the switch. Then another wire going from the switch to the relay. I realize the diagram may not be clear about that part.

Has anyone done this in a 2011-2013 newer model IS?

I took out my center dash to find that the wiring harnesses look different. so if anyone could help me out or point me in the right direction as to finding the correct wire for the camera input that would great!

here's what the back of my nav unit looks like:

I have a Lexus LS 430 (3rd Generation) 2001. Thinking about installing a backup camera to avoid hitting something. Can someone recommend a product. I do have a Navigation system; but, in the process of trying to update it myself as opposed to the dealer.
