Backup Camera Showing Rear Bumper

Sat Jun 04, 2011 7:31 pm

My backup camera used to show hardly and of the rear bumper but now the bumper takes up about 1/4 of the screen. I've looked at the camera and there are no signs that it was bumped. It still works but this is annoying. Anyone else notice this? Any suggestions for fixing it?

I wonder if it might be loose and changing aim when the tailgate is closed...

Wouldn't this be covered under warranty? Probably can just bring it back in and have them adjust it back for you.

There is an adjustment screen if you access the diagnostics, but I would have the dealer check it out. I know that on this site somewhere there are instructions to do it yourself though, so if you want to search them out it might fix it. Sorry I don't know exactly where.

I looked in my service manual and it looks like the adjustment is for the distance and predictive steering lines not for the the picture. My guess is that the camera mounting itself has moved. As stated above, should be a warranty issue.

Could you post some pictures of the backup screen? The bumper does show quite a bit, so I'm wondering if maybe the hatch wasn't closed all the way the first time you noticed the bumper location...

Did you figure out what had changed or what could be done about the back up camera? Mine is doing the same thing now and I don't thing it was doing that before.

Here is what mine looks like, the bumper takes up around 20% of the lower screen and extends just to where the red distance markers start. I that what you are seeing?

Ditto. The last red marker should be about a foot out from the bumper edge so that is the reference for whether or not everything is lined up correctly.
