Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Do you have the model number of the camera and what are you trying to install it in

I want to install it on a Honda Accord 08 in the side mirror of the passenger and that the monitor is activated when the car is turned.

ok for this to work I will need a bit more information, can you send the wiring diagram for the camera, and do you want this to turn on when you hit both turn signals?

I think this might helphttps://www.Customer.com/blogs/news/first-postYes
Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

ok the easiest way for this to work is to just install it to a switch, the circuits that control the turn signals are integrated into the computer with ground signals, your camera needs a 12v signal you wont be able to tap into the lights circuit because the picture would blink, we could possibly make a circuit but that would require making a circuit board and wiring a few components into that
