Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2019 Ford F-Series models over a rearview camera display issue. This is the latest of many camera-related recalls issued by The Blue Oval, including a 2015-2017 Ford Mustang rear camera wiring issue, 2022 Ford Transit rear video camera uplifting and rear camera display problems, 2020-2021 Lincoln Aviator rearview camera faults, and a 2021-2022 Ford Edge rearview camera software issue.
