Jorgimbo,

I was able to re-calibrate using forscan software to bring the guidelines back to screen on a 2011 Lincoln MKX.

Not sure if you can make use of the information but here it is;

As stated above, first you need to be sure you have the appropriate hardware and not any aftermarket or otherwise poor substitutions. Next you will need to find yourself a suitable cable to use with the Forscan software; personally I would recommend a USB to OBD option and stay away from any wireless/Bluetooth types. Best to find one with both MS CAN and HS CAN support (some types may have a toggle switch).

Once you have sourced the necessary adapter(s) and hardware you need to connect to the vehicle using Forscan. Begin in HS CAN mode, a screen will pop up asking if you have both MS and HS compatibility, if Forscan detects you have a variable or lower bitrate adapter you will be asked whether Forscan should raise bitrate (this part I chose yes but not sure if mandatory or not). The next screen will ask you which version of SYNC you have, this part is critical as selecting the wrong version may not give you the correct function(s). After you select your SYNC version Forscan will begin to locate and scan modules for faults. After HS CAN modules have been located and scanned it will ask if you have a toggle switch for MS CAN, use yes if possible and it will scan the MS modules.

After this stage is complete you need to go into the service procedures tab (should be a wrench icon), check that you are in the service procedures tab at the upper left of inside screen. Look through the list until you see BdyCM and the corresponding function should be either “Rear Camera Calibration” or in some cases “Local Interconnect Network New Module Calibration” select that option and press start at bottom left of screen. If this process is able to be completed successfully you will get a message stating so. Follow steps provided to cycle ignition. Next you need to verify there are no remaining hard DTCs in BdyCM or PAM (parking aid module), clear previous faults if stored.

Disconnect the vehicle and ignition to off position. Remove the OBD2 connector. Start your vehicle and change to Reverse and check whether you have succeeded.

Great Post you are spot on.

I recommend that after you attempt to calibrate your old camera and it does not work using the method above stop and buy a new camera and do not waste the time trying to figure out how to fix the old one. It is a simple disconnect for the old camera and the installation of the new one. I bought mine brand new for $165 on ebay, took me 15 minutes to install it and 5 minutes to calibrate it and that was it.

Here is my vehicle and parts I used to fix it.

2012 Ford Explorer - New Body Style - Sync II
Forscan Program
OHP OBD II CAN w/ HS-Can and MS-Can Toggle Switch - Amazon
used “Local Interconnect Network New Module Calibration” to calibrate camera
New Ford OEM Camera in the box - Manufactured 07/19 - Ebay $165

Dealer wanted $800 to do the job, I did it for $210.

Good Luck.
