thanks for the detailed explanation.
the only thing i would ask is about pins 85 and 86.
my google search showed that pin 86 should be connected to the 12v and pin 85 to ground. your explanation has it reversed. does it matter how these two are connected?
No it doesn't matter, you can connect 85 and 86 in whichever order, just so long as a current goes through it

ok Piers1989, i finally got it to work. i bought an automotive relay at Radio shack and used it to switch the 12v from the reverse light bulb 12v to a steady 12v.
works like a charm.
cost me $40 for the camera and rear view mirror monitor and two days of work but it is definitely worth it.
thanks for the help
