2021-2022 Ford Bronco Recalled Over Rearview Camera Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2021-2022 Ford Bronco models over a rearview camera issue.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the rearview camera image may still be displayed after a backing event in 4-Low has ended. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.”

The hazards: a rearview image that continues to be displayed after the vehicle is shifted out of reverse may distract the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. The issue is limited to operation in 4-Low mode.

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

    Saw this happen myself at the Bronco Off Rodeo in New Hampshire this past June. I wasnt the only one there either that experienced it. As you shift between Park/Drive/M1 gears, you shift past reverse. When it doesnt get stuck, you see the backup camera flash by on the screen. It became stuck on the backup camera about a half dozen times throughout the 8 hours or so i was behind the wheel. Only way to fix was to restart the vehicle. suprised they havent updated these by air automatically by now.

    Also, the electronic parking break lever is EXTREMELY FRAGILE. the off rodeo instructors kept telling us over and over and over and over, making everyone hold up their arms and reenact GENTLY pulling the parking break lever. 3 drivers still ended up with broken/non functioning parking breaks.

    Most Ford cars have a problem with their back up camera’s. My Edge has always had problems with the camera. It will sometimes go dark especially in bright sunlight. Ford won’t fix or can’t fix the problem.

      Yeah, many manufacturers have problems with their cameras. I’ve got a 2022 Silverado and the rear camera glitches out if it’s raining

    See I would love access to my rear camera any time I choose. Its ridiculous that I dont. The rear camera showing is not any more distracting than if I was looking at the radio display on the screen.

      Agreed. There’s multiple views available, but only in specific modes. I’d like to get the tire-spotter view without having to put it in Rock Crawl and locking the differentials.

    I thought there was a setting that the backup camera stays on after it goes into drive for like 5 seconds and it wasn’t a problem but my 2021 Ford bronco Big Bend does also stay on
