2017 F150 Backup camera module missing

Post by ifly185@gmail.com » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:53 pm

I have a 2017 F150 4" Sync with OEM backup camera. After removing OEM dash in step 6 of the RR install instructions, I do not have the camera module as shown in fig. 6.0. The triangle bracket is there, but no module. Where else is it? Also, for some reason I have the OEM GPS antenna installed. Thanks

Does your camera show on the 4" screen, or does it show on the mirror?

It showed on the 4" screen, but I get a picture on the Kenwood. The module must be built in the Sync module is all I can think of. I can't trace the cabling without unwrapping it, so I don't know where the connection leads to. But, it works as is with the Kenwood and RR.
I assume the GPS antenna is for Sync to allow position for tracking and or Sync notification and App uses. I will mount the new Kenwood GPS antenna in it's place as primary and move the Sync antenna to the side unless there is a reason not to.
Thanks again.

That should be just fine. Thanks for the update! Depending on the trim, sometimes the camera goes through the sync module, and other times there is an external module that controls it (not in the radio cavity).

Thanks, am I correct about the OEM GPS antenna? I thought about removing it, but will put it off to the side.

You can just put it to the side.
