Zsteinmetz On my 2015 it was where the harness plugs into the camera by the ford oval. What I did was removed the tailgate plastic on the inside so I could access the camera back and plug. I then had the key in the on position not started and opened my back window so I could see the camera. I started wiggling connections and found it to be the back of the camera plug. Put some dielectric grease in and good as new.

travsav Just fixed this issue on my 2014. Replaced the harness that plugs into the camera that goes into the tailgate. Cost $30 on amazon. I tried blowing out the connectors on both ends of the old harness with no luck. As soon as i replaced the cable, crystal clear.

nycpsd Had this problem as well. What it ended up being is the harness that the camera connects to within the tailgate to under the bumper. The harness contains a bare wire wrapped in shielding between splices at either end of the harness(To cut interference from the reverse aid system). There was no corrosion in any of the terminals but after disassembling the harness found a spot where the corrosion was breaching through the shielding (no wire chafing found on the protective plastic tubing). Also a fair warning is when you remove the rear Ford emblem it will break, ford has this listed as a one time use part and must be replaced. There are then 2 long bolts holding in the rest of the housing and 2 Christmas trees holding the harness into the bottom of the tailgate. Both connectors on the harness are single locking tab release as well.

GUYS THE CONNECTOR UNDER THE BUMPER right before it comes through the tailgate is loose youíre gonna have to get a couple of zip strips and zipper tight. But before you do that I would get some electrical cleaner and clean it real good

djmaguire Sheeeeet... I thought that these new fancy-schmancy trucks were completely wireless!?

The pic that @Heavy_GD posted appears to be the real deal, fellas. Clean, grease, and secure that connector.

Heavy_GD All these people and no one has taken the time to source out the connections mentioned above.


I would take this harness, unplug it and securely plug it back... then tie it up and away from the parking brake

CBarker 2015 just started doing the same thing, but it is getting worse. Zero warranty left. Anybody have a definite fix? Got my first error message the other day.

Big Wave31 I have a 2014 F-250 with the same intermittent backup camera issue. I found the wire harness that is fastened to the e break bracket was the problem area. When the camera fails I reach up under the e break and grab the harness and give it a couple tugs. This has solved the problem, every time, so far and releasing the break with my foot on it so it does not snap out helps a lot. Sooner or later I will dig into the connector up there or have the dealer do it when the truck is in for something else.
