Over 700,000 Ford Vehicles Recalled as Rearview Camera Goes Dark, Distorts Images

Ford Motor Company has issued a recall of more than 700,000 of its vehicles in North America following an issue with their rearview cameras, which can suddenly go dark or show distorted images.

The recall applies to most 2020 versions of Ford’s F-Series trucks, the 2020 Explorer, Mustang, Transit, Expedition, Escape, Ranger and Edge, as well as the Lincoln Nautilus and Corsair, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The company is unaware of any crashes or injuries caused by the latest issue, AP reported.

The problem was said to be caused by a poor electrical connection, the company noted in documents posted Wednesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
