I have received my front camera, there is an AUX well but would have the kindness to tell me where you can connect the red and black son ........
I begin to regret not taking a wireless camera

Basically, you'll need to fit the red wire to a 12v supply and the black needs to go to ground (you can bolt it to anything metal on the car).  I would not fit the red wire directly on the battery because it will drain the power when the car is turned off.  Really, you need to find a supply which is only live when the car is running.

 

Looking at the cables, it seems that the red (12v) wire also runs through the video cable.  You will need to run the video cable through into the car to plug it into the AUX socket.  That means you might be able to wire the red wire into the cigarette lighter.  The black wire can still be connected to ground somewhere under the bonnet.

 

I hope that makes sense.

 

Let us know how you get on :)

How is your installation going?

 

I was chatting with T.C about a front camera the other day and it reminded me that you were working on one :)

Haven't yet installed my wireless front camera kit yet as a) it took blooming ages to come from Chinese supplier and B) I'm stuck in Turkey trying to get my residency permit sorted.
I cannot see why your camera should blow your cigarette lighter fuse. I often have a couple of iPads plugged into my centre console lighter which is 2amp plus. Suggest you put a meter on it when you connect to see whether you have a short etc.
The plan is to connect the actual camera and transmitter to the auto drl relay power supply going to the drls under the front headlights and this should be man enough to take any power requirements (I have a 10amp fuse in series with the +ve battery connection).
The receiver will fit in the centre console connected to the aux input and supply from the power socket there.
Here is the picture of the auto drl relay which you can get off Amazon/eBay etc

As Paul says, it could be shorting out.  Also, which fuse is blowing?  Is it the Nissan one for the cigarette lighter or is it one you have added?

 

Show us some photos If it helps to explain :)

If you test the resistance between live and negative on the camera what do you get?  Or event use a continuity tester to see if there is a direct short.

 

It does sound like there is a short circuit to me.

... so... you're worried about seeing interference on your cam in the bird box...... :gathering:  

OK, so it's taken a while but now I can prove the camera really went into a bird box!
