385K Ford Explorers, Lincoln SUVs Recalled for Faulty Backup Camera

  • Ford is recalling 382,759 SUVs because their backup cameras could malfunction, preventing the image from showing.
  • Included are 2020 through 2023 models of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator and the 2020–2022 Lincoln Corsair.
  • Ford says the problem affects the 360-degree camera system, not the standard rearview camera, and could cause an intermittent failure that shows only a blue image on the Sync infotainment screen.

Ford has filed recall documents with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) over a problem with the video feed in its 360-degree rearview camera system. The problem affects the 2020–2022 Lincoln Corsair and 2020–2023 Lincoln Aviator and Ford Explorer. According to the recall report, the problem can happen intermittently and cause a blank blue screen.

The majority of affected vehicles (279,700) are Ford Explorers built between October 19, 2018, and January 3, 2023.

Ford reported 2115 warranty claims of blue images on the rearview camera as of November 30, 2022, and said it is aware of 17 “minor accidents allegedly resulting” from the blue-screen problem but no reports of related injuries.

Owners of the subject vehicles will be notified starting February 20, Ford said, and dealers will update the camera system’s image processing module software free of charge. In the meantime, owners of one of these SUVs can check the NHTSA recalls site to see if their vehicle is included or to get more details.
