Re: Problems with backup camera

Did replacing the camera fix the intermittent problem? My 2014 Focus Electric just started doing the same thing.... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't (I get the "camera not available" message), and sometimes the camera even stays on after I've shifted into Drive. I've tried disconnecting the battery, updating Sync (as of 9/24/19), and removing/unplugging the camera to look for a loose connection. A new camera costs $300 and I'm not convinced that the camera itself is actually the problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

thanks.

As a follow-up to my last post concerning my faulty rearview camera in my 2014 FFE, after checking everything else, I decided to purchase a new OEM rearview camera. I'm happy to report that it fixed the problem! The camera cost ~$300 through parts.ford.com. Be sure to enter your VIN # when you order the part to be certain that you are getting the correct replacement camera. It was fairly easy to replace, so you can save a significant amount of money doing it yourself.
