2022 Ford Transit Recalled Over Rear Video Camera Upfitting Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2022 Ford Transit models over a rear video camera uplifting issue. This comes on the heels of a similar recall related to the 2022 Transit’s rearview camera display.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the rearview camera supplied in the Rear Video Camera and Prep Kit will not function when installed by the final stage manufacturer (upfitter), resulting in a blank rearview image.

The hazards: a camera that does not display a rearview image while reversing can reduce the driver’s view of what is behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Components: rear video camera.

Affected vehicles: select 2022 Ford Transit vehicles built at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant between January 7th, 2022, and February 25th, 2022.
