K it works. Zero programming needed plug and play. When I have time to compile everything I’ll do a whole write up. Get your parts on order.

I don’t think either of you read what I’ve typed. Here is what you need: Spoiler assembly with camera (black) 84515287 Mirror 13532977 Coax cable 84335461 You do NOT need to buy the PN I ACCIDENTA

Mirror came in, waiting on the camera, should be here Monday. Powers up perfect with the plug that’s glued inside the headliner. I’ll post a full install with PN needed next week.

Thanks Brian.  I think the camera is bad.  I have the Blazer mirror hooked up and the long cable hooked up to the spoiler camera only and nothing.  I even put it in drive to make sure that wasnt an issue.  Thats the  bad thing about used parts.

what is part number on your actual camera, not lense, it may be a bed view cam and not rear view mirror cam.

Well, I finally had a weekend off to do the install, but after reading about some DOA parts i said I better test them first before pulling down the whole headliner.  As it turns out, the mirror I thought I got a great deal on won't even power up.  I know its not the connector because I already had purchased an auto dim mirror when I got the truck and it works perfect.  I guess I should get a new part instead of a take off part.  Now I wait for the refund before I get the new one.

I got my new mirror yesterday and everything works fine now.  I would assume this means that the Gen 1 mirror wont work unless you are using a gen 1 camera out of a cadillac or something.   Now I just need to get the headliner down and finish the install.

One thing I did try was to see if you could make the cable longer and yes you can!  I gently cut off the black plastic piece on the end that does into the mirror and then plugged it into the blue connector and it works fine.  You will have to tape it up to keep things together.  This means you can use 2 of the cables, a mirror & the taillight camera assy to do this job.    IMG_1422.jpg.63cfd8f1cb1dbba319420ec8ae2ea906.jpg
