Hi

Only had my focus 2 weeks and tonight I was reversing and noticed my reverse camera did not come on in the satnav display , it was still making the beeping sensor noise but no picture was showing.

Strange thing is it was working when I left work.

Luckily I have my car booked in for another problem Monday but does anyone have any idea what it could be?

thanks

Terry

Could be just a loose connection at the back of the sat nav - what did the garage say...?

Hi, it's new technology to us I guess thus not many of us can help, you sure the camera lens isn't dirty or obscured by anything?

We fit these cameras on Range Rovers mate and dirt on lense can give a black screen so have a look ?

I have just taken delivery of a Focus Tit X Est. with the Sony Sat nav, According to the handbook there should be a reversing camera but it does not work, it may well not be even fitted. I have had no chance yet to inspect the rear of the car for the camera itself, there is nothing in the number plate area, where is the camera located on the rear of an estate?

(the rear parking sensors come on in the display)

Also, on the satnav display there is a yellow line on the right hand side of the display (in Map view) is this normal? it's very intense and runs from top to bottom and is a couple of mm's wide. It's not there on any other view. Any comments on this?

Also.... Can't seem to find anyway of switching off the airbags for passenger seat for child seat... Certainly not as described asin handbook.

Hi, the Mk3 Focus, and if yours is a 2011 model then I guess you have one of these, does not come with a reversing camera yet, you are misinterperating the manual. As too switching off the airbag, I believe you will need a switch fitted by the dealership to do this.

Mine is a 2012 model and I was assured that rev cam would be on it, 750 quid for sat nav is a rip off.
Reported back to suppliers and will get back to me on Monday.
Map display has bright yellow line down hrs. Is this normal???
