Question backup camera

Recently whenever I first start my 2017 Escape, and put the vehicle in reverse backing out of my garage, I get a camera not available message on the center screen. I have to touch the ok button and the camera is not available when backing out. I've tried shutting off the car and then back on but it still is unavailable. Later after I park and put the car in reverse the camera is working fine. Does anyone else have this problem or maybe even a solution? It seems to happen only on the first start up of the day.

Since your FE is new I would bring it into the dealer and try to document the issue by taking a video or photo.

I've only had my escape for a few days. I usually get the camera but sometimes I only get something that warns me of things that are close to the vehicle. It's been random. I don't understand the technology enough to know if there is a bug. In your case, I'd document it and then visit the dealer.

I can't say for the 2017 FE. But I have two Fords (2013 Flex and FE) and one Lincoln (2014 MKS), all with backup cameras. The camera comes on all of them every time the they are put in reverse.

My 2016 MKZ back up camera also comes on everytime I put the car into reverse. Gues the Escape will need a dealer visit.

Have you had any luck with your problem, my grandma purchased a 17 last month and it was doing the same thing a couple days later.
