More Rearview Camera Recalls, This Time For The Ford Bronco


Yet another rearview camera recall has been issued, this time coming from Ford and impacting the 2021-2022 Bronco.

A recall notice published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that some 47,046 Ford Bronco models in the United States are involved in the recall.

Ford has revealed that the rearview camera image may continue to be displayed after the vehicle has finished reversing. The car manufacturer says the reappearance of the image may distract the driver and could increase the risk of a crash. The issue stems from the SYNC infotainment system software not being properly configured for when the driver operates the vehicle in 4-Low mode.

To resolve the issue, Ford has developed a software update that properly configures the SYNC system for use in 4-Low mode. Ford will issue an over-the-air update to resolve the issue, meaning owners will not have to bring their Bronco into a local dealership but should they prefer, they can still make a visit to a dealer.

Impacted Ford Bronco models were produced between September 23, 2020 and May 18, 2022.

This is not the only recent recall to impact the Bronco. In late June, Ford issued a recall for some 63,000 Bronco and Ranger models, noting that the windshield could detach, increasing the risk of injury. The recall notice revealed that there may have been inadequate adhesion between the windshield and the body structure. This recall was issued just a couple of weeks after 53,103 Broncos were recalled because the rear doors could be opened even if the child safety lock was set to on.
