Recall BMW, Nissan for backup cameras

Following on the heels of Toyota’s backup camera recall in August, BMW, Nissan and Infiniti announced recalls on about 1.5 million vehicles due to rear camera issues.

BMW is recalling nearly every vehicle produced since 2018 amounting to over 257,000 vehicles, said Motor1.  Nissan late last month recalled 1.2 million vehicles.

The problem for the BMW, Nissan and Infiniti cameras is the same and involves the display settings.  The driver has the option of setting the brightness and contrast to the point that the camera image is no longer visible.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined this violates Federal safety standards.

The BMW recall also affects certain Toyota Supra and Rolls Royce models, said Motor1.

Toyota’s recall is due to a separate issue, where the cameras fail to activate when the car is placed into reverse.

BMW models affected by the recall include:
