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

hi, this is likely just a faulty camera based on your description - it will need to be replaced, although wiring should be checked as well (and worth checking fuses if you have not)

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.
