I have a 2014 Fusion Hybrid which originally came with an 8in Sync 2 screen. The backup camera on it worked flawlessly.
Today, I upgraded it to an 8inch Sync 3 donated from a 2019 Fusion Hybrid . Since the swap, I have lost the rear view camera. The proximity sensors still work and I can hear the beeping. But nothing changes on the screen. Any help on how to get it to work? I looked at the APIM Configuration and the camera settings are enabled:
Could you post you APIM asbuilt? Do you have your Sync 2 asbuilt available also?
This is probably just a setting that needs adjusting. Did you run the New Module LIN Calibration when you added Sync 3 to the vehicle? (In FORScan)
Where did you get the values for the Sync 3 APIM for your vehicle? If you are using the 2019 settings they will not be correct.
Did 2014 Fusions have push button start?
Not sure if they had push button start, but I can upload my as built for you. I’ve got a 2018 fusion plug-in hybrid SE. The settings for the APIM should be nearly identical except for the PHEV setting (not sure if you’ve got just hybrid or plug-in), and any option trim level features above SE.
I’ve got my backup camera working so if it’s an APIM problem my config should work for you and you can reference it as needed. Just have to go to my car to pull the latest config.
So I did not rerun the calibration, but copied my factory from the sync 2 ab to sync 3 from 7d0-01-01 until 7d0-04-01 and the camera started working. But I get a message. “Video on demand is not available” and the backup camera is lower resolution than it used to be. Also, the hybrid power control screen doesn’t show a car anymore it is just black screen with a status.
There was obviously corruption in the asbuilt causing issues with the camera activation. Now that it is gone, you can try loading the Sync 3 asbuilt again.
I went thru the current Sync 3 asbuilt and compared it to the Sync 2 asbuilt. There were no errors, although the asbuilts do not line up of course, the values are different between Sync 2 and 3 anyways.
Your current asbuilt contains a number of errors. These are annotated in the attached excel file. Yellow is good, orange needs to be changed. This will solve the issues noted above.
Attached are files I made to compare the Sync builds.
This is a new asbuilt for your Sync 3 APIM. It reflects the changes in the excel spreadsheet. You can load it by selecting “LOAD ALL” at the bottom of the asbuilt page. siddiqim90 Sync 3 NEW.txt (493 Bytes)
There will be checksum errors appear when you load this asbuilt. Let FORScan calculate the proper values.
