Precept 36a - lost rear view camera

Need some help. Lost my rear view outside of Ouray today. (Highway 50 heading west was a mess btw). It had been working great. Side views are still working.

Went behind the dash of the radio and checked for a fuse. Found a few but none that was in that circuit. Tried to follow the wires. Canít find one. Iím sure it has to be a fuse down stream. Had voltage out of the radio and I know the input is good because of the side views.

Any ideas where to look on a 2020 Precept 36a or similar?

I searched. Nothing has helped.

Just a thought, did you check the connection from the rear camera to your camera controller, which is probably behind your radio. The fuse that feeds the controller must be OK as you still have the side cameras.

I checked the connections to the radio and everything was good.

I was thinking there must be an inline fuse in the camera power line, but I sure canít find one.

There is an inline fuse for the camera controller but if it was bad, no cameras would function. There are also "trigger" wires that turn the respective cameras on/off.
If you haven't already get a wiring diagram for you cameras from the manufacturer. I have uploaded mine as an example.

Thank you that was very helpful. I did find that fuse and it was fine. All other connections are good too.

Iíve checked the 12 volt input and there is power.

Iím out of options. Iím worried the camera has just went bad.

Just a thought....Its early and my thought process may be flawed but you may be able to unplug a known functional side camera line on the camera controller and plug into the rear camera connection on the camera controller. This would remove the rear camera from the system. If the side camera now works, and shows on the monitor something in the rear camera/coax line is amiss. If the side camera does not work, its could be the camera controller. This at least would narrow down the possibilities.

Thanks for all of your help. I was thinking about that late last night too. Would be a good way to further narrow down the problem. I really hope it is not the camera. I hate running lines that far. Not hard. Just a pain.

Too bad those connectors are not RCA. I could just connect to the Stereo input.

Voyager makes an Asa to RCA connector adapter. I just found it on Amazon. That would make trouble shooting so much easier.

I may keep one of these on hand in the future.

That confirmed it. Switched the side view camera to the rear camera on the controller. It worked. So the controller is good. I just have a bad camera.

Well the journey continues. I pulled the camera off. To make sure it was bad, I plugged it into the controller in the dash. It worked great. So, my issue is the cable between the controller and the camera in the back.

Narrowing it down.
