Hello

do you remember where did you connect the pin 4 and 5 to (Green and Orange/Green) ?

Did you manage to remove the rear seat side bolster?

Hi! I'm Juan from Spain. Last weekend, I installed a colleague a camera rear view at its 5 series (F10) with a retrofitted navigation CIC 609 but without PDC.
After coding and review installation and coding again and again, everything was ok, but the camera did not work at all.
Anyone know if we must have original PDC to make this retrofit ??
Thanks in advance
JP

Hi Juan,

Did you manage to make reverse camera work?
I have same problem big navigation, no PDC and would like to retrofit camera.
But I would like to know if you succeeded?

I've recently bought my F10 520d and love it! When bought, from a BMW franchise, the reversing camera worked just fine. After only 3 days it has failed. Whilst all the lines are displayed, there's no picture. Naturally, I took it back and they're having a problem. The unit is a retrofit and not a BMW original. They're willing to do something, just don't know what! Is it likely to be just a camera fault? Have you come across this problem before?

Is the retrofit the OEM reversing camera?

If so, check the fuse to the camera module. If the fuse is OK, I will tell you it can be one of several things considering its a retrofit.

poor power wire tapping
poor grounding
poor connection from cam module to canbus
poor video connections at back of iDrive head unit
bad camera
bad camera cable
bad camera module

Apologies, but honestly, I'd use the above as a troubleshooting guide.
