My questions are two. First, which fuse-(fuse number among N10/2) should I connect my positive line of backup camera and negative line? If it is impossible, How can I KNOW which line is for reverse light bulb among reverse lights case?
And with my monitor line, which fuse(FUSE NUMBRER among F34) should I connect my positive line of backup camera monitor and negative line?

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!
