Reverse Camera

Post by p4n05 » 17 May 2019, 10:40

Good morning all,

The rear view camera on my DS5 (2012 model) is great in the day but quite useless in a dark carpark or in the evenings. i have replaced teh reverse lights with LED ones as well as the numberplate ones but still not much luck. Has anyone done anything to resolve the poor quality issues?

Many thanks

Panos

Unfortunately it's known that the quality was poor on these early ones.

There is a Technical Service Bulletin about this issue - D6AW014VQ0 "Poor visibility of the image transmitted by the visual reversing assistance video camera at night".
If you contact the dealer and quote this TSB, they should be able to advise you as to what this involves to rectify.
