As the title states looking for a working rear camera for Gen 1
Had to replace mine earlier this year. Best I found was this:
Heads up, if you have a 2012 or earlier, your emblem is going to break when you remove it to get the camera out.
I replaced my whole housing with this so that in the future it won't break:
Oh yeah... I have a broken camera and emblem you're welcome to.
Haha I think Ill have to pass on that stellar offer
Ya sure? Cheap. Only dropped once.
For what it's worth, once you break the stupid emblem, the rest is fairly easy. Unbolt the rest of the thing, unbolt the camera, fidget getting the new camera and plastic widget in, put it back together. Make sure the wire harness clips on tight. You don't want to get in there again. Test the sucker before you bolt it back up and put the new emblem on.
Mine had a gradual failure where I would sporadically get an error saying no signal from camera or something close to that. Sometimes the image would come on, but be all messed up - or flicker on and off. It got worse and worse until it always failed. I first suspected wiring since the wiring harness runs through the tailgate which bends 90 to straight all the time when opening the tailgate. Upon inspection it all seemed fine. Replaced the camera and it works 100% of the time now. I can't seem to get my zoom to work though. I never used it before, so I can't say if it's related or not.
Thats exactly where Im at. I checked the wiring from the connector to the tailgate all fine there resealed it all. Now onto the camera. Thanks for the insight
