Exclamation 09 back up cam help

Been having issues with my back up cam. 1st started out just flickering in and out and one day it would work, next day it would not. Now it is consistently NOT working. Rear sensors seems to be working but no video. Wiring and/or cam itself? What does it cost to have looked at, and fixed?
Upgraded 10 years thought I'd never use back up cam, now I'm spoiled and can't live without it.

astroman54 will become famous soon enough

Maybe just a bad connection?? I would start by disconnecting the cable at the bottom of the tailgate and reconnecting it..

Best bet would be to call the service department and ask them what they would charge to diagnose the problem.

Sounds like it might be a poor connection or maybe oxidation on a pin. You can check the two connections in the tailgate, one near the camera and the other where the tailgate opens on the bottom center. If that is the problem you can get electrical anti oxidant cleaner and spray on the pins.

If it is the camera, one member just had his short out, a replacement will most likely run from $150 to $200 (estimate)
