How to Install the Anytime Backup and Front Camera - Full Kit

*Note the video may mention the Blue/Grey wires on the switch are not used.  This comment was referring to our Gen 1 switches.  In our current switches the blue and grey wires are for the switch backlight,
This write up should provide insight on how to install the Anytime Backup and Front Camera product (ABC-FULLKIT, ABC-CAMKIT, ABC-FRSKIT).

Your kit will come with the following products:

Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28)
Anytime Backup Camera Switching Relay and Video Harness (ABC-FRONT)
These two components are bundled as one in this kit.  ABC-FRONT is comprised of the Switching Relay (ABC-RELAY) and Video Harness (ABC-VID).
If you ordered a Camera Kit (ABC-CAMKIT), Switch Kit (ABC-FRSKIT), or Full Kit (ABC-FULLKIT) you will also receive the items below:
Camera Kit (ABC-CAMKIT):
Items pictured above PLUS a Camera
Switch Kit (ABC-FRSKIT):

Full Kit (ABC-FULLKIT):

Installation

NOTE:  The camera must be mounted with the threaded nipple VERTICAL for the image to be oriented correctly.

The Anytime Backup Camera Rear Override Harness (ABC-28) has 28 wires in the harness with two wires in a sheath coming off the female end of the harness.  The harness will plug into the rear of your factory in dash screen in the place of the factory 28 wire harness and then the factory 28 wire harness will plug into the other end of the Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28).

Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28) - Wire Functions
The two wires will be connected directly to the switch to control the harness.  We recommend using our switch (ABC-FRS pictured below) but you can also use any SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) switch of your liking.
The RED wire from the Anytime Backup Camera harness (ABC-28) supplies 12v to the system and should be connected to the RED wire on our switch (ABC-FRS).
Next the ORANGE wire on the Anytime Backup Camera harness (ABC-28) is the load and should be connected to the ORANGE wire on our switch (ABC-FRS)
Next you will install the Video Harness and Relay (ABC-FRONT) which come with your kit.  The Video Harness has 24 wires with two factory style connectors on each end and two Yellow RCA plugs on it.  Similarly to the ABC-28 harness, the Video Harness will also plug into the rear of your factory in dash screen.  The Video harness will plug into the rear of the screen then the factory harness will plug into the other end of the Video Harness.
You now need to connect the Video Harness and the Switching Relay.  The MALE RCA plug on the Video Harness will plug into the MARKED FEMALE RCA on the Switching Relay and the MALE RCA on the Switching Relay will plug into the FEMALE RCA on the Video Harness.  Your kit will come pre-assembled like this so you can skip this step in most cases. 
Next you will need to connect the GREEN and BLACK wires on the Switching Relay.  The GREEN wire will connect to the GREEN wire on the Anytime Backup Camera Front and Rear Switch (ABC-FRS).  Then you will connect the BLACK wire from the relay to a chassis ground.

GRAY -         Illumination - (negative/ground)
BLUE -         Illumination + (12v)

  • Hi,

    I installed the full kit on a 2019 Tacoma off-road and when i flip the switch from front to back, only the back camera comes up for front and back. I have flipped the orange and red cables with the same result. I went through so YouTube videos and one of them connected the red cable on the RCA cable to the camera. Tried that with no changes. Originally I connected the back and red to the Battery directly.

    Any help is appreciated. I spent 4 hrs re-running and changing wires.

  • I am having a similar problem like some others are having. My forward and reverse cameras are only working when I am in reverse. I would appreciated any assistance.
    Thank you

  • Just completed install. Wouldn’t work at first and was about to rip it out and return it, last ditch effort I wanted to confirm if I connected the harnesses correctly… for the 2020 Tundra at least there are TWO 28 pin connectors that the ABC28 will fit.

    The 24 is the one in the middle a d the 28 you want is the one on the left when the radio is right side up. It’s actually easier to install when you flip the radio upside down and rest it on the dashboard. So in that case it’ll be the one on the right. Took me about 3 hours to figure that out. You’re welcome. LOL

  • I’m not getting 12v at the red wire. I do get 12v at the orange wire when the transmission is in reverse. Can you confirm the pin that the red wire should be connected to on abc-28.

  • I left a message earlier but dont see it now. I have a 2017 Tacoma I believe I installed everything but the cameras only working it’s in reverse. Like it’s not overriding proper. My cell is 909 969 9655. Help.
