Reverse camera emulator issues (ebay)

I've been having a major issue with this emulator... perhaps you can offer some advice?


to summarize the problem, my camera only engages on the first shift into reverse. every subsequent shift brings up the pdc/camera screen, but the camera is blanked out. It is not a video feed/power problem, but rather the camera being disabled. If it was a dead feed, brightness/contrast controls would remain enabled, and there would be a black video box.

video:


The CIC variables i have coded are:

macro_pdc aktiv
macro_rearview aktiv
rvc_cic wert_23
macro_l6_parkmenu aktiv


to troubleshoot, i have tried the following:

1) tried removing the navi/voice emulator to rule that out (since my CIC is a retrofit)
2) tried adding 3AG
3) tried adding 507
4) tried coding defaults to CIC to start from scratch (with and without the added VOs)
5) tried exchanging the emulator for another one in case it was faulty

No idea what to try now...

The problem was the emulator. It needs pdc. Camera is getting power from a fuse that is only on with ignition

Unless it was your specific emulator, PDC isn't required. There's another thread on E90 Post that discusses this in further detail.

the thread is over a year old. it was the emulator's design. it did not emulate pdc properly.

i wasn't the only one with the problem.

switched emulator brand and everything worked fine

I don't have the camera installed, but I've coded others for this. With and without PDC.
