Hey every one, I am out of wrranty, and my rear view cam stopped working.

I read here a guy with a lease had the smae problem, it was the fuse, and like him, I chagned the fuse, and if blew again.

Is this a common problem???

Do you guys know where the common shorts are??? I do not want to go a wild goose chase...

thanks in advance !

I've never heard of it before. Electrical problems can be really tricky to track down.
Try disconnecting the camera itself if you can and see if that stops the fuse from blowing.
Did a ground come lose somewhere? That can cause current to flow weird to find the ground.
Ya, this sounds a lot like a bad ground. Have you checked your battery cables? Also, how old is your 12V battery? A bad battery has been known to cause a myriad of problems.
Car is less than 2 years old...

Car is used 5-6 times a week. I dont think the 12v should be bad as of yet.

I tried to remove the driver visor. Once it was free from te headliner, there was no plug at the end... how long is this harness??? anyone know wher to fin detail drawings of this?

I would suspect it is the visor, I move it everyday, 3- 4 times a day.. ( I drive 85 miles each day)
I wouldn't completely rule out the battery. There were a few instances of bad batteries that only lasted a year or so.

Try putting the car in Reverse, and moving the visor back and forth repeatedly. If the camera cuts out while you are doing that, then you may have found the issue.
