Rear View Camera Fuzzy Screen?
I've been experiencing lateral lines of fuzz traveling vertically across my navigation screen when my rear view camera is engaged. Also, I have the rear park aid guidelines turned off, but sometimes they appear when the screen is acting especially glitchy. Other than a random isolated malfunction, there are a few things that come to mind when I think of reasons why this started happening.
First, there have been unusual cold fronts coming through Texas around the time this started happening which left my truck covered in icicles on multiple occasions.
Second, I have an aftermarket rear tailgate emblem which is adhered to the rear back-up camera housing with 3M double sided tape. Maybe ice or water collected somehow differently than with the stock emblem. This is not likely to be the cause but it's probably something the dealer would constitute as to void the warranty. I can switch back to the stock emblem easily if I end up needing to go to the dealership.
The most likely cause relates to my installation of a rear wheel well liner which required the removal of two white plastic push pins which held a 1" diameter black wrapped wire cluster to the frame of the truck. I was forced to remove these white plastic push pins with an easy removal tool in order to secure the wheel liner to the frame of the truck with push pins that came with the liner. I don't think I punctured the black wrapped wire cluster with the easy removal tool but I did not feel the need to re-secure the wire cluster to the truck frame as it did not seem as if could go anywhere anyway.
Anyone else have a problem with a fuzzy or glitchy rear view camera screen?
