    I have been having an issue with my since week 1 , I told my dealer about it and he said it was probably just a software update.


    I was never able to get it down to the dealership but after reading this thread I called and said there was a recall for the same issue I told them about and I was told there is no recall...

    Just go get it replaced, I had mine done last week. It went mostly dark with some purple lines and dark green lines, but sometimes it would be fine. The dealer said that is pretty normal, that they go out with intermittent problems.

    Mine has gone out a half dozen times over the last month. I just get out, push it with my thumb, and it starts working again. Will probably get it done along with something else since the workaround is easy and lasts for a while.

    Ask Toyota, their heated seats like to melt the plastic connectors under the seats. They can’t figure it out either.

    I just got the front and back cameras replaced under the Recall, 20C19 (rear) and Customer Satisfaction Program, 20B39 (front) They were both intermittent since day one. I had never heard any explanation as to why these cameras were malfunctioning. The Service Manager at my Ford Dealer said the malfunctioning cameras actually would get too hot. Sure enough. My front camera had gotten so hot at some point that the pigtail was slightly melted so they replaced that too. Hopefully the problem is fixed now.

    I had my rear camera replaced this week. I didn’t have any issues with it.

    That's my biggest concern. I'm waiting for the replacement camera to come in, part is ordered. But my camera has always worked. I hate screwing with stuff that works. My luck, dealer will put it in, and THEN I'll start having issues, LOL!

    This recall is optional, you don't have to do it. You can still replace camera a few years from now, in case issues come up.
