How to Install the Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28)

Below are a few tips on how to install the Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28) for viewing of your factory backup camera at any time.
Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28)
You will receive the harness above which 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 existing 28 wire harness and then the factory 28 wire harness will plug into the other end of the Anytime Backup Camera Harness (ABC-28).

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)

  • I noticed on that 2020 Tacoma. There are two blue wires and two gray wires. I connected gray to gray and blue to blue. Is this correct? Everything seems to be working fine. I did notice that when the front camera is on , both lights on the switch come on. When the backup camera only one light on the switch comes on. Is this correct?

  • Install on my 2020 tacoma non jbl went smooth. Both cameras work perfectly. Switch is illuminated and blends great with factory. Very happy customer. The only issue i have.. Android auto is now disconnecting after a minute. Shows connected on the phone and phone charges but says disconnected on the headunit. Have you ran into this?

  • Adam,
    for the three slots, they are all 28 pins. For the harness with red and orange wires, you connect this in place of the gray connector slot and the the video harness goes to the middle connector slot. You will see the amber light on the switch and front view of the cam. This is the only major modification from the video tutorial in the help section.

  • Hi,
    Just bought camera to be installed on my 2020 TRD Off Road Tacoma.
    If you can please confirm two slots to be used for 28 pin and 24 pins harness since there are 3 slots.
    2nd if yuh can please send me wiring connection diagram. I’ve already tried and tried to connect but with no success. I was able to connect the front camera but it would not switch to back camera.
    Your immediate attention is greatly appreciated.
    Best regards,
    Adam

  • I have left 2 messages sines 12-25-2019. This was a Christmas present and I had questions on install. I have never received a call or email back. Through YouTube videos I have completed install but the anytime camera switch is flaky and does not always work. Could you please contact me? Thank you
