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 !

yeah ... the car is less than 2 yerars old and has electrical problems......
I have 41k miles...

That seems odd, could you explain why it is out of warranty ?
Unfortunately, the same fuse controls the "Body Control Module 6/Map Lights/Courtesy Lights/Back–up Lamp"

all on a 7.5 circuit.....

this guy had the same problem, but turned in the car before finding root cause.

Unfortunately, you have to go with a process of elimination, and hope you hit the issue sooner rather than later.

Start with disconnecting the camera. If the fuse no longer blows, it is most likely a bad camera - the camera can be replaced. If the fuse still blows, it could be a bad connector. If replacing the connector does not fix the issue, then there is most likely an issue with the wiring itself (probably crimped somewhere?), and finding the issue could be a pain. Having an electrical wiring schema diagram (from Chevy's Service Manual) should help.
thanks for the reply... yeah not happy about this at all.

I changed the fuse, and i turn the light on, it worked, put it in reverse, it worked.

2 hours later no work ....

not amused!!!

I took off my Rear facia, unplugged the back up light. randomly about 2 hours or so later, the fuse blows and the map lights don't work. but the rear back up camera works for another day or so. Then the rear camera stops working...

It doesn't blow while the camera is in use.. it is randomly while I am driving.

SO this morning the rear camera didn;t work.... NOW after lunch it works... and the fuse is still popped .....

Also, I swear i heard something pop in the rear driver door, and as soon as I heard it, I check the map lights and they didn;t work.... is the body controller in the rear driver door???

I have a feeling it si the dam body controller. any one know the pN: for this. and it's location I have a 2015 volt.
See less See more
it is getting close to this....

To top it all off my passenger DRL stop working too...
which visor was it??? driver or passenger?
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)
what is also weird are that my rear cargo light and the dome light still work too. AM i reading this right , that they are all on the same circuit...
anyone know wher G202 ground is located?

The sun visor lights are both connected to the same F7DR fuse.

Did a ground come lose somewhere? That can cause current to flow weird to find the ground.
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.
I'ii check it.... is it the traditional 12.3v + good batt ????
So everyone knows, I found the problem. it was the visor. Thank you for the reply of one of the members that said that was the problem for them.

Had to remove the visor and the ! pillar trip to unplug in. Now no more uses blowing
