I made an account on this forum just to say THANK YOU! I was installing an aftermarket receiver in my mom's Subaru and found myself struggling to get everything working with the harnesses I was provided. This saved me A LOT of trial and error.

Thanks again!

i knew something was different with this 17 i have....there is no 5 pin plug it is like the 2016 on the 28pin harness


removal instructions
Great Video. Which wires from the 28 point harness correlate to the 4 wires needed for the 5 pin plug?

UPDATE: updated the broken photo links.

Guys so this weekend I fought my way through this install.

Besides still not having front speakers sound (pins are in a different harness) I managed to finally get my rear camera working!

The diagrams floating around here for the 2015 and 2016 there is one wire that still holds true to its current position on the 2017 and that is the reverse signal. (the wire that tells the HU that it is in reverse)

The power and video wires are not on the 28 pin harness! (well the power may be but I just ended up tapping into the main 12V / Ground.

So here is the wire harness that is for the camera:




The wires tested with my headunit tapped in:



6V - White
Ground - Black
Video(+) - Red
Video(-) - Grey

Hope this helps someone around here. And for those who might want to ask if I spliced into the OEM wires. I did not splice them. What I ended up doing was removing the white harness so that the female pin connectors were out in the open like how you see in my picture. Then I took a small paperclip and created "pins". I soldered my aftermarket wires (6v output from the module and my RCA cables) and inputted the paperclip afterwards into the female connectors and after I bent the pins so that it ran parallel to the female connectors. Then took heat shrink tubing and sealed it up tight!

Hope this helps anyone else trying to get OEM backup cams working for their new HUs!
Do you know where I could purchase a replacement harness for the backup camera?
