Did this issue ever get resolved? I'm interested in this kit as well but I don't want to run into the same issue with the lights affecting the front-facing camera. @Baja Designs any input?

I appreciate the feedback. I don’t want to do to the dealer for a reflash/calibration just due to a light install.

Tbh I don’t believe everyone will have this issue. There were a couple of TSBs listed in this thread that apply to model year ‘21 only and if that’s the case ‘22s-on shouldn’t have the same issue.

Please note this has only happened on a handful of occasions on the 21 models . As of right now we have not had any problem with years 22-on.
Best,

When doing a front light install that requires removing the grille, you obviously have to remove the four wire/hose connections at the top of the grille and one of which is the front camera. If at any time during your install, you wake up or turn on your truck, the truck will see the camera is not there and then you get the rear brake assist message as they are part of the same system (basically I think once the truck sees that part of the system is compromised, it disables rear brake assist even though rear brake assist does not use the front camera).

To fix, you will need Forscan:
1) Go to the DTC (yellow triangle icon), and one by one clear as many DTC codes as you can. Not all will clear but you should be OK.
2) Go to the wrench icon, and down near the bottom run the IPMA local Interconnect Network New Module Calibration.
3) Then in the wrench icon, run IPMA 360˚ View Camera Calibration. You will need somewhere where you can drive 5MPH or less for about 10 minutes. A parking lot works well.

This should reenable your rear brake assist and fix any 360 camera views if you have relocated your front camera because of a bumper light bar or pods install.

I hope disconnecting the battery will keep this from occurring
