The color screen is not a simple plug-n-play swap. You will need to also replace the DCU (Display Control Unit) to power the color screen.

I, too, plan on attempting the mono-to-color screen upgrade, possibly this Spring.

I purchased the screen on eBay a couple of years ago, then last summer I picked up the DCU and harness from a member here. If the spirit moves me, and I find the time (and I can track down an errant oil leak) I hope to add the project to my Spring to-do list.

BTW, I apologize for not answering your original question about the rear camera. :redface:

Good luck!

nice…. thats ok

Thats the other thing that i am going to need is the harness.. what is the exact name of it I am looking to get one. or can one be made?

Because from what i was seeing it looks like other were just splicing into the factory wires correct ?

The harness I was referring to is actually the connectors with a few inches of wire from each one. I will still have to locate and splice the appropriate wires into the main harness.

When you source your DCU try to get the connectors. They cannot be purchased individually.

The "real" harness is part of the main ($$$) harness.

Yes, I will snap and post (once I figure out how on the "new" forum) some photos once I get back to the house. Possibly tomorrow.

If you are sourcing your DCU from a freshly wrecked MO I suggest you request the salvager leave the connectors on the DCU and clip the wires as far from the connectors as possible.

Ok so i don't really feel like doing the orange to color screen swap at the moment. But i am looking to add a back up camera (that shows the screen in the rear view mirror) to my car and have the screen come up on the rear view mirror. now Im looking for a camera that will fit where the OEM one fits don't know which one to get?? (any suggestions) or seeing if maybe there is a way that i can connect the OEM camera to the rear view mirror screen so like that i know that it will fit in the spot just fine
