Yeah, it's a mid-life crisis thing. Deal with it.

I just bought a (cheap) backup camera system for my 2007 LS, and will need to splice into the reverse light circuit at the dash and in back.

Is there a wiring diagram available to mere mortals (i.e., not GM maintenance techs)? 

If not, does anyone know what wires I should be looking for at the dash fuseblock and in back (preferably at the trailer hookup rather than at the tail light cluster?).

Thanks....

Thanks to both of you.  The site does not specifically list the Avalance - I presume that the "2007 ALL NEW C/K FULL SIZE TRUCK, ELECTRICAL - Utilities SUV (Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban, GMC Yukon & Yukon XL) and Light Duty Pickups (Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra)" manual is applicable to the Avalanche?

I just bought a Winplus camera and need to connect the monitor to the 12 volt + back up light in the cab. I looked through the entire 07 manual but couldn't find where to do that...probably cause I don't understand them!

Does anyone know where a 12 volt + wire is for the reverse lights in the cab? Help me!

I was wondering how do you access the BCM. Do you have to remove the trim under the steering wheel or do you go under the dash. I'm trying to find that blue wire. I posted this pic maybe you guys could help me out.

No need to dig into the bcm, its right there on the mbec.
Look at page D131 circuit 38, there are three places on the mbec and I bet the one for the factory camera is empty since you don't have it.

Is yours the new style or 99-07 style?  In the new ones they combined a couple.

Either way go to www.gmupfitter.com then publications, light duty, year and the electrical guide.

I also just purchased the Winplus @ Costco (now $69).  Any luck finding the back-up wire under the dash on the 07's.   I'll be looking for that wire myself.  A picture would be so helpful.

Thanks,
Fred

I just tapped into the green wire coming off my tail lights...works great...only comes on when I'm in reverse. I'm thinking about putting secondary power switch in the cab though.

Have seen lots of threads on this, but no definitive answers to where the reverse wire is. Can someone tell me where the wire is in the picture, please.

I'm not sure if the dark blue wire is the reverse or not. I did test it in park and there was no power, but then I shifted to reverse and I had power. But....I unplugged that whole connector and I still had reverse lights. It's the connector in the picture above the black one.

Confirmed...dark blue wire it is.  Cheesy
