3 Indications You Need a New Rearview Backup Camera

car audio

The rearview backup camera is one of the most important safety features added to modern vehicles. According to Driver Knowledge, around 6 million car accidents occur in the U.S. annually. You can help avoid an accident when you have a functioning rearview backup camera. Ensure your car's camera works correctly by watching out for these three problems.

Your Vehicle's Rearview Backup Camera Presents Signs of Exterior Damage

First, you should consider replacing your car's rearview camera if it shows signs of exterior damage. Remove the camera from its perch and check if it has sustained any cracks. You should also check for indentations on the camera's surface. The camera may also present visible signs of wear and tear.

Hopefully, you got to your camera quickly, so the exterior damage isn't that bad. You may still be able to take the camera to an auto shop for repairs. In some cases, the wear and tear may be so significant that it renders the camera incapable of functioning properly. Big cracks and bumps on the camera's surface may also force you to purchase a replacement.

Your Vehicle's Rearview Backup Camera Is Displaying a “No Signal” Message

After hopping into the driver's seat and turning on the rearview backup, you may be greeted by a “no signal” message. The “no signal” message is a potential indicator of different issues. In many cases, it is an indicator that there are issues with your camera's wiring. The message appearing due to a relatively simple wiring issue would be the best-case scenario.

There's also a distinct chance that the “no signal” message is related to a blown fuse. You can try replacing the fuse to see if that gets your rearview backup camera back online. If the “no signal” message persists, you should look into getting a new camera.

Your Vehicle's Rearview Backup Camera Is Waterlogged

Although rearview backup cameras are designed to withstand contact with water, prolonged exposure is a different matter. Too much water soaking into the camera can compromise its functions. Make a habit of drying your rearview camera as soon as possible whenever you have to drive in wet conditions. Consistently waterlogged backup cameras are unlikely to last very long.

Rearview backup cameras have made driving and parking significantly easier for motorists. Those cameras have become essential safety features on modern vehicles. Don't take to the road without a working camera on your camera. Contact us today so we can supply the replacement camera your vehicle needs.
