Tailgate camera

Does anyone know if there is a camera that will plug into the tailgate camera harness when the tailgate is off. I want to install a camera in
the back of my camper and plug it into the camera harness.
Any ideas on a solution.

Ford sells some of its connectors in order to repair damaged ends. If you can find the right connector and sort out which wire is which, you might be able splice an aftermarket camera in.

I don't know if the connector is available but here is all the info you need to tap into the existing camera circuit. Also here is the connector and part number in case it is available:

Rear Camera Circuit:



Connector C497:

Is that connector in the tailgate, even if you do not have the factory camera? I want to add a camera to my NAV, and I like the factory location, but doubt its likely to work there.

No it's not in the tailgate - it is under the truck between the rear bumper and the spare tire, just right of center.

Right next to the bright orange cap for when you remove the tailgate.
