Are the rcas input or output? Most likely output but I could be wrong.

If you have a link to the radio it might help.

Edit: red/white is audio. If there isn't a yellow you definitely can't do it.

Seems like it would work. It has all the inputs a PS2 would require

The camera input is for a rear view camera and most decks don't allow that option to display on except when in reverse. I think even if you wired a positive voltage to the "reverse" wire, the other display functions on the deck would be unavailable.

So, you could switch the reverse wire to 12vDC, and plug your PS2 into the camera and audio in, but all other deck functions won't work. When you go to play, you need to flip the switch to fool the deck that your backing up and your PS2 is the camera.
