Default Backup Camera Blue Screen

Hello everyone, brand new Ram owner.

Although my Salesman did an excellent job, we failed to review the back up camera on my Laramie. When I got home, I put it in reverse and the screen turned blue with a message to check my surroundings, but no camera. I checked the settings and the camera was checked, "on". Should I call the dealer or I am I just missing something obvious? Thanks in advance.

Guy

I think you have a connector that is not quite plugged in
there are connectors in several places

at the camera just inside the tailgate removable panel
at the bottom of the tailgate
just to the left of the spare tire
maybe one or 2 more going to the firewall
one right at the back of the radio

I would look at the 2 connections, bottom of tailgate & by the spare tire first
take them apart & reconnect them, look for bent pins if there are any showing

I'm with GTyankee on checking the connector at the tailgate. There is section in the owners manual on this starting on page 247.

If you don't have the Owners Manual, you can download it for free here - http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/owners/manuals/
