If the rearview camera display does not show what is behind the vehicle, it can increase the risk of a crash.

Revisions were made under REPAIR PROCEDURE



Year Model Trim VIN Range
2019 Insight EX, Touring Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.



There is a problem with the audio/audio-navigation unit software, which may lead to one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Display Audio screen only shows guidance lines with the transmission in reverse. As a result, affected vehicles do not comply with applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
  • Display Audio screen turns black when shifting from reverse to park.
  • Head Up Display (if equipped) and Meter does not show the compass and turn by turn for navigation.
  • Navigation app crashes when using VR to add destinations or when rerouting a destination.
  • The key is in the OFF position while the “incoming call” screen is displayed and when key is turned back to the ON position, the “incoming call” screen will remain on Head Up Display (if equipped).

If the rear-view camera image does not appear while the vehicle is moving backwards, the driver may have limited visibility, raising the potential for a collision.



Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.
