This harness actually works on a 2008 Jeep Commander. Used it in order to connect the factory rearview camera. Pretty straight forward. Does not come with instructions. Not listed here as fitting the 2008 Jeep Commander.

Needed this on my 2008 Chrysler T&C with VES when installing a Pioneer NEX head unit. There are no installation instructions (negative), but it seemed straight forward. Crutchfield customer service also helped. Plug 'IN' to 'IN' with the RCA cables. For the RCA out, I used the rear video out and the mini audio plug (mini to Red/White RCA) per the pioneer manual for a rear display. This kept both the VES and a 2nd output so that both rear screens can play different sources. This also allowed me to keep the factory backup camera.

Worked Perfectly for Backup Camera

Kirk from Pasadena, MD on 6/14/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I recently installed a Pioneer AVIC-8200 NEX and an iDatalink Maestro RR so I could use the steering buttons with the receiver. Only problem is the Maestro doesn't have connections to allow you to keep the OEM backup camera. The iDatalink site and the Crutchfield advisor stated I would need to install an aftermarket backup camera in order to have one again. But, when I removed the OEM receiver I found that it had a wiring harness for a rear entertainment setup and the backup camera uses this harness so i ordered the AVCH 1. When it arrived, I plugged it into the OEM entertainment harness and the camera input on the AVIC-8200 NEX. I reinstalled the receiver, started the engine and what do you know, the OEM backup camera is working.
