The screen on the radio/nav reads " A system fault has been detected that may cause the navigation to perform abnormally. Please contact your local ford dealer for assistance." Additionally the rear view camera is not working and I don't know if they are related problems

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

without access to a ford diagnostic computer, there isn't much you can do except check fuses, unhook the battery for an hour to reboot the system, and check wiring at the rear view camera.

if none of this helps, then there is either a software or hardware fault present, and you will need to have the vehicle scanned as a next step.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
