Customer Question

My rear view camera is works sometimes (without the lines showing anymore), the picture is upside sometimes, and is black other times.
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2011 Ford Edge
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I was hoping that I could just reset something. I haven't tried anything so far. My car was serviced this week because the battery cables needed cleaning due to corrosion. I was hoping that would help but it didn't.
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: No I have not.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not sure how to tell if it is leaking or not. I haven't noticed anything.

The cameras had issues in 2011. Replacing the camera would fix the dispearing lines as well as the upside down image.
