My camera has been acting up at times, meaning its not recognized by the display. Its not that there is a blank screen each and every time I go into reverse. Sometimes the main display doesnt even acknowledge I went into reverse, even though backup lights did light up. Some times the display does realize I am in reverse and says the cam is not available and to contact the dealer. Fortunately, the cam works most of the time.
Some folks mentioned that the hatch has to be fully closed for the cam to work, I find the cam can work with the hatch open too so I am not convinced its a matter of hatch having to be securely shut.
There are a couple ways of chasing the problem down, I can start at the back of car or the in-dash display or I guess in the middle down around the gearshift lever.
I thought Id start by the cam itself, figuring it would be easiest to get at but it appears I would need to open up the hatch from the inside to get at the wires etc. Does anyone know if this is the case? I do see some very low priced cams available which are kinda tempting, provided no other problem can be identified.
best I can determine so far is that my cam problem 'seems' to happen most when things like the navigator is on or been operated earlier on.
