For some reason I believe after an update the backup camera on my Taurus only works part time. I'm not sure where to start troubleshooting this issue.

Does it seem to malfunction when it is wet out? Is your backup camera mounted in the Ford badge or under the spoiler? I had trouble with an intermittent backup camera on my 2010 SHO, and I noticed it malfunctioned when it was raining or foggy out. I removed the camera and found the seal where the cable goes into the aluminum housing was broken (you could see the 'caulking' type seal was separated from the rubber cable.) and water/condensation was running off the spoiler and into the camera. I removed the camera on a dry sunny day and put a bead of silicone caulking around the seam and haven't had trouble since (although it's only been 2 weeks)

Also, Mods might want to move this to the 5th/6th gen board

I don't think its weather related. It just does it at random times. It worked this morning when I back the car out of the driveway.
