I’m an owner of a Citroen C4 2012 e-hdi (automatic diesel) and I’m trying to install an aftermarket backup camera.
I already have an aftermarket nav-unit (7” screen running Android) with reversing support (the screen switches to video input when in reverse gear) installed and working great.
I would like to draw power from the reversing light so that I can power the backup camera when in reverse.

Does anyone know which cable I could draw power from when the reversing lights are on?
And would this affect the Canbus?

I've read about others owning C4 2012 who has connected a backup camera to the reversing light without any problems.

Here are the cables connecting to the back-light on left-hand side:

I apologize for the poor picture quality.

Any help and input are very much appreciated. 😊
