Ford recalls 462,000 vehicles over rear camera issue linked to 17 crashes

(NEXSTAR) – Ford has announced an international recall of more than 400,000 vehicles due to a video output issue that prevents the rear view camera from displaying while backing up.

The recall affects 383,000 SUVs in the United States, including some Ford Explorers and Lincoln Aviators equipped with 360-degree cameras, according to The Associated Press. The production year ranges from 2020 to 2023.

Ford said in government documents released Friday that it was aware of 17 minor crashes believed to be related to the issue, but there were no injuries. Drivers say that instead of being able to see behind the car when backing up, they see a blue screen.

To resolve the issue, dealers will need to update the image processing software in the vehicles.

The total recall includes 462,000 vehicles worldwide, Reuters reports.

Ford said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contacted them in October 2021 after allegations that the blue image appeared in the backup camera, according to the document. The problem led to a recall that year involving 228,000 vehicles, according to Reuters, which will again need to be fixed.
