Thumbs up Install a Factory spoiler with a backup cam to factory Nav/dvd system

If anyone is interested our 2011 5.0l was loaded except for back up cam had the Nav/DVD screen. But after having a back up cam in my f150 I new it had to be a must have for the mustang anf I am partial to the factory look with the cam in the spoiler. so we ordered the spoiler had it painted installed and I thought that all that would have to do was to plug in to the plug in the trunk lid but was wrong. So I had to order the "Ford LOCKPICK plus synccam 12 harness is needed as well from coastaletech.com " .
so below is my install sorry for the rambling but it works great very happy.
this is only if you have the factory NAV/DVD system.

So I have finally installed the Ford Lock pick in our 2011 Mustang 5.0L 6 spd with Nav/DVD player. it went quite quick 1.50 hrs tools needed is
flat screw driver to pry consol and stereo/hearter bezzel and
7 mm nut driver or ratchet
black tape
velcro and the
New Sync Lockpick plus
the synccam 12.
the lock pick and synccam12 are 239+39=278 plus tax and shipping.
I ran the lock pick controller into the glove box and velcored it to thinside if the glovebox incase an update is requireded easy to get to there.
I also bought a rear factory spolier with the camera in it form ford for 400 bucks had it painted 100 bucks. The plug in is in the trunk lid easy to find plugs right in.
After the monitor is removed the stereo can be pulled forward but not much room I was able to put my hand in behind the stereo unit and un plug the plugs from behind the stereo unit only two are required to be unplugged. pluged in the lock pick wire harness very easy they can only fit in the proper spots and plugged the synccam 12 harness into the back of the monitor (If using the factory cam like I did make sure you wrap black tape around the yellow rca plug so it does not touch any metal or the screen will get interferance). run the lockpick hanes to the glovebox and hook it up to the lock pick controller. make sure the wires are not going to be pinched anywhere behind the stereo etc. once put back together turn on the car 10 seconds lockpick turns on must wait about a minute and follw on screen prompts. If you are installing the factory cam like i did and it asks if you have a factory camera respond NO.
sorry if i am all over the place first time i have written a how to post
But if I can do it anyoine can I am not very mechanically inclined.

Thanks SDF

Yes a nice writeup indeed. I thought about doing the same thing although I have the pedestal spoiler and the NAV/electronics package but I got so used to the reverse sensors I decided not to but who knows. After reading this I just might.

Thanks Wildfire,

coastal also sells cams that go on the rear plate but that i am not 100% sure of how the wiring hooks up i think you may have to run an RCA type cable from the back through the trunk back seat into the console to the stereo. Which I would not think it would take to long to do either. I like the factory look myself. I just don't no why FORD would not make these cams standard for vehicles with the nav/dvd screen. Everyone says the don't need it which I agree I did not need it in F150 but once you have its great

They are nice to have. I would have had it for our Mustang but couldn't get it with the pedestal spoiler. Ya Coastal do sell the cameras and your right, they connect via two RCA connectors and its not much trouble to run the wiring in though the cab but when I looked not the kit Castal couldn't tell me if it would work on the 2012 models so I backed away.
These cameras are a must in a truck especially backing up to a trailer. I put a system in my tractor and my truck.

Here's a few photos of the cameras I've installed in my work rigs. I appreciate you taking the time to do this writeup. Good job
