Ford 2017 F-150 Backup Camera issue

Post by mstrampp »

I purchased the aftermarket camera, harness, and latch assembly for my Ford 2017 F150. I installed the hardware. I used Forscan to change the code (7A5-01-01) from 2029 to 2229. Selected "Write All" in Forscan. Turned the truck off and on. I thought I was all set. Nope! When I go into reverse, there is a pause on my 4" screen, then it says "REAR VIEW CAMERA NOT AVAILABLE". The truck senses that there is a camera present as it shows up in the Menu. I have retraced my steps in Forscan and checked all the harness connections. I am unsure how to move forward! I would appreciate any help or feedback to solve my issue! Thank you in advance!!!

What’s your car’s Sync system and version?

My F150 is an XL model. I don't think it has a Sync System. The screen I have is 4".

Post the link to the site where it was purchased and hopefully there are part numbers and identifiers of a possible connection status.
More research is required.

Most of the time and with SYNC systems, the image is distorted, image upside down, the guide lines not moving with the steering application.
That camera may belong to a different system.

Revert all your changes if you saved a copy.
If not, access the As-Built data and save that file or paste / save that data into a Word program.
Write the As-Built again to the controllers you changed one-by-one.
