Ford has issued a safety compliance recall for multiple 2020 model year vehicles for intermittent rearview camera operation. Affected vehicles have insufficient electrical conductivity within the printed circuit board internal to the camera. A rearview camera that intermittently displays a blank or distorted image would not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and requires corrective action by the manufacturer.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
This action affects 620,246 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 76,566 in Canada and 4,302 in Mexico.
