reverse camera help. its a ford.

Alright. In my shop I have a 2000 Ford e250 van. V8 automatic. I have the system up and running. Its positive and negative connections with a remote wire. The Guy wants the system to come on when shifted into reverse and it to shut off when its out of reverse. I just need to know what fuse does the reverse lights. Or what wire I can tap into that's on the reverse light switch located on the side of the trans. Can anyone help?

There might be a reverse light relay on the back side of the fuse box, or at least that's where it's at on my '04 F250. I tapped into the out put of that relay when I installed mine.

black with pink stripe is the color for the reverse lights power wire. maybe the drivers kick panel area, obviously at the reverse light also.

That wire- the black w/pink tracer also goes to thingy called a Remote anti-theft personality module.
