1. Turn on your vehicle and put it in reverse.
2. Look at the camera display to see if there is an image or if it’s black.
3. If the display is black, turn off your vehicle and wait a few minutes before turning it back on.
4. Check the camera again to see if there is an image.
5. If the camera still isn’t working, check the settings on your infotainment system to make sure the camera is turned on.
