I will also answer my other questions... the pink RF connector is for satellite, the black one is the FM antenna, which works great, at least on this model, even in my garage. Still not sure what the 4-pin RF connector is for.

Anyone installed a backup camera with one of these? The reverse lead from my head unit goes into the harness and up to the display on mine, there is no loose end.

And vaguely related, it seems as though the cigarette lighter in the hatch is only hot when the engine is running? Is there a 12v source back there anywhere that is live in accessory mode?

As far as accessory power goes, you’re basically out of luck. You’ll have to run power all the way from the head unit to your backup camera. Somewhere in that mess of a bundle of wires at the back of your head unit should be a loose composite video connection. It is intended for a back up camera and when you shift into reverse the head unit will automatically display that input unless you have nothing connected, in which case it will show a yellow exclamation point triangle thing. Most back up cameras will have a cable that is a combination composite and power cable that should make your life a little easier to get all the way back to your back up camera location.
