You will have to replace the camera o fix the problem.

Ford sells the camera for $510. You can search the internet like EBAY. See the link below.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=+lincoln+mkx+camera&_sacat=0

The replacement camera will have to be properly configured using the proper scan tool that the dealerships have for it to function properly. See the directions below.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
