Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Rear-view camera system


: The rear view camera system is a reverse aid supplement device that still requires the driver to use it in conjunction with the interior and exterior mirrors for maximum coverage.


: Objects that are close to either corner of the bumper or under the bumper, might not be seen on the screen due to the limited coverage of the camera system.


: Back up as slow as possible since higher speeds might limit your reaction time to stop the vehicle.


: Use caution when using the rear video camera and the trunk is ajar. If the trunk is ajar, the camera will be out of position and the video image may be incorrect. All guidelines (if enabled) have been removed when the trunk is ajar.


: Use caution when turning camera features on or off while the transmission is in R. Make sure the vehicle is not moving.

The rear view camera system provides a video image of the area behind the vehicle.

During operation, lines appear in the display which represent your vehicles path and proximity to objects behind the vehicle.

The camera is located on the trunk.

Using the Rear View Camera System

The rear view camera system displays what is behind your vehicle when you place the transmission in R. The system uses fixed guidelines which show the actual path the vehicle is moving in while reversing in a straight line. This can be helpful when backing into a parking space or aligning the vehicle with another object behind the vehicle.


: Do not use the camera system if the trunk is ajar.


: If the image comes on while the transmission is not in R, have the system inspected by your authorized dealer.


: When towing, the camera only sees what is being towed behind the vehicle. This might not provide adequate coverage as it usually provides in normal operation and some objects might not be seen.

In some vehicles, the guidelines may disappear once the trailer tow connector is engaged.


: The camera may not operate correctly under the following conditions:

Nighttime or dark areas if one or both reverse lamps are not operating.

The cameras view is obstructed by mud, water or debris. Clean the lens with a soft, lint-free cloth and non-abrasive cleaner.

The rear of the vehicle is hit or damaged, causing the camera to become misaligned.



: The guidelines are only available when the transmission is in R.

A. Rear bumper

A. Rear bumper
B. Fixed guideline: Red zone C. Fixed guideline: Yellow zone D. Fixed guideline: Green zone

The fixed guidelines fade in and out depending on the steering wheel position.

Always use caution while reversing. Objects in the red zone are closest to your vehicle and objects in the green zone are further away. Objects are getting closer to your vehicle as they move from the green zone to the yellow or red zones. Use the side view mirrors and rear view mirror to get better coverage on both sides and rear of the vehicle.

Rear Camera Delay

On vehicles without a navigation system, the camera image in the rear view mirror remains on for a few seconds to assist in parking or attaching a trailer.

On vehicles with a navigation system, the camera image remains in the display until the vehicle speed reaches 5 mph (8 km/h). This occurs when the rear camera delay feature is on, or until a radio button is selected. Selectable settings for this feature are ON and OFF. The default setting for the rear camera delay is OFF.
