Back up camera problem

Ever since i bought the car intermittently the back up camera would stop working and the screen would be black saying "system not available" or the image would be very distorted. Every time i went to the dealer of course it worked. Any help?

Re: Back up camera problem

If the car is under warranty I would have them change the harness and or camera, obviously something is loose/ broken to be intermittent.

Re: Back up camera problem

I think part of the issue is you're Jeep appears to be laying on its side. I'm not sure the reverse camera is designed to operate that way...

I was just teasing....

...anywhoo....

I think whatever is wrong is at the harness end, not the camera end. Your dealer really needs to get in on it.

The rear camera and rear harness was replaced still same problem is occurring..

My guess its something to do with the group however I have no idea where its located.. Dealer can't "replicate" problem..

Re: Back up camera problem

I had this happen for the first time today. It was when I was washing the vehicle. When I went to move it, I got that same screen. I had just put some detail spray on the vehicle prior to getting the screen and likely got some on the camera as well. I then went back to the camera and buffed off it off with a microfiber cloth and it went back to normal. I'm going to keep an eye on this, I hope this isn't the beginning of a problem.
