The power to the camera probably comes from the reverse light wiring harness. I am guessing that the camera video cable would already be run to the rear trunk area somewhere or there is an unattached molded plug of some kind back there. Even if the cables were not run for video there has to be some place to tap into it somewhere. Might have to go all the way back to the touch screen if necessary. In any case, there has to be a way to do this to at least get video when in reverse.
