Wireless backup Camera

I have 2004. Can a wireless backup camera be connected to the backup light for power?

In theory yes. It's my understanding that that is how most 3rd party systems work.
What are you going to use to display the image?

There is a low frequency signal overlaid over the power to the reverse lights to detect if the bulb is working or not. If you get a flickering camera image, it is due to this signal.

Thank you, this is a wireless camera setup. Do you think it will have the flickering issue?

Possibly. Because the camera is getting power from the reverse lights. If you use a relay to isolate the camera and have a separate power source, you should not have the issue.
