Hey friends. Ran into a new issue besides stalling and burning oil.

My rear view camera occasionally just doesn’t work. Went to the dealership, showed supervisor, was told to make an appointment for a week later, yet now it’s working so they say they won’t do anything. And they tell me I will always have to make an appointment, and they wouldn’t be able to see it day of me showing it isn’t working. And this is the second time I made an appointment when it was not working, then it was working the day of the appointment.
Has anyone else had the rear view camera issue?

Sorry to hear you are having issues, Julsch. From your instagram, looks like you've been doing a lot of off-roading. I would suggest poking around near the connectors and see if maybe a contact has corroded. I believe there may be a wiring 'junction box' under the trunk near the bumper for distributing circuits to the rear lights. Wiring issues can be expensive because they take a lot of time to identify the issue. Good luck!

I have had that issue on another vehicle. When you start it let everything boot up. Then put it in reverse. If I fire it up and throw into reverse mine does not like to work. Worth a try.

After hours of arguing with the dealership they contacted FCA directly. Their tech team stated they are aware cameras are malfunctioning and it is a software error that will have an update by the end of the month.
