The basics of the installation for the 28-pin harness are depicted here:

Camera Connection
(click to enlarge)

Install the harness
-Verify that the vehicle is off.
-Carefully remove the plastic cover around the head unit and unscrew/unbolt as appropriate. Disconnect and remove the stock headunit.
-Connect the connectors on the AutoHarnessHouse.com harness to the corresponding connectors on the vehicle's wiring harness.
-Connect the black ground wire to a ground.
-Connect all other wires as depicted above.

Connect the aftermarket headunit to the harness as follows:
-Connect the purple wire to the back-up lamp input wire on the new headunit. This is the wire that triggers the backup camera when your car is shifted into reverse. There is no need to connect the headunit wire to the backup lamp. This harness provides that connection.
-Connect the yellow RCA connector to the backup camera input connector on the headunit (This is normally a brown connector)
-Connect the red and white RCA connectors to the auxiliary audio input connector on the headunit

Configure the headunit to use the reverse camera:
-This configureation process is different for every headunit. Pioneer headunits normally come preconfigured to accept the camera but it is possible that it must be reconfigured. This is performed by navigating to the home screen and navigating to "System" > "Camera Polarity" > "Battery"

Compatibility:

2016-2019 Subaru BRZ or Scion FRS or 86 (WIth Starlink Headunit)
