OEM backup camera for 2013 Edge SE?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the Edge SE model has the factory wiring already installed if I wanted to install the reverse camera? If not, would it still work with the oem camera? My 2013 SE has the 101A package with the sensors on the rear bumper. Anyone that can chime in would be much appreciated. Thanks

 

Here is the part # for reference- BT4Z-19G490-B

What screen will you be looking at? Ive seen some rear-view mirrors with little screens in them.

I was hoping I could just look at the center screen on my dash. I think its the 4.2 inch screen. I wanted to try to keep it oem but if that's not possible what would be my best option? I went to my dealership where I bought the car and they could install the rear view mirror with camera but wanted to charge $600.

Oh. I thought you had the entry level audio like me. Didn't think SE's came with the Sony Audio. I digress then. I asked my dealer about a camera and they said $1000 - 1200!!! I told them to have a nice day.

No, I also have the entry level audio without my ford touch. Would the OEM reverse camera still work?

Between camera and mirror you can spend as little as $400. Its the installation that will get you. I'm gonna shop around some car audio places and see what they say.

I've also hear of this being the best solution for our model. Guess I'll just have to go that route. If you ever get it done to your Edge let me know.

Edged Up,

 

This is why I was asking if it could be done on the SE model. I found this SEL appearance package that has the same screen setup as mine and it has reverse camera. I don't have dual climate control. So it looks like it might be possible?? See pics below.

 

Pic of my screen is the last one on the right.

Oh damn! You just schooled me. Thanks! I was not aware of that! That looks good!!!! Now my gears are going! And why are we the only two on the thread!!!! Some one else gotta chime in. I want this in my car and cant see spending $1000 for Ford to plug in a camera and change a setting.

 

You've done more research than me and that looks better. OEM.

Yea hopefully someone else that may know more info can chime in and help. I have also heard something about ford going in and changing a setting to make it work. I want to try and keep it OEM if possible, just looks much cleaner that way.

 

P.S.- Didn't mean to school you or offend you in anyway if I did, I've just been really curious if this would work and I happened to just browse upon that SEL with that option. I didn't even know it had the camera until I opened the pictures.

No offense man! All good. You educated me better said. I like what you found better. OEM all the way. I want it to look like Factory. Not a sarcastic thanks. Thanks for real bro. I just gotta find some one at the dealer that will walk me thru what they would do. I like that option.

I hear ya. I should have purchased the SEL with all of the options but too late now. If you find someone at the dealership please let me know how/if it can be done. I think it's possible, but I'm guessing wiring will have to be ran and something at the dealer will have to activate the camera into the screen.

Yeah. I aint getting rid of my baby. I like my blue se. I'm gonna find out what my dealer says. Maybe go during the week when its kinda empty and no rush and see what they say. Any updates I'll post up.

I was just wondering if this was possible the other day.

 

Unfortunately I'm new to the Ford Edge so I don't have much to chime in with but I'd be interested in knowing if this would work.

in the mean time, I found what looks to be an OEM camera on ebay

Can probably be made to work with an aftermarket double din head unit at worst

Can anyone chime in and possibly know if this would work on an SE? I really would like to install a reverse camera and the OEM part only costs $100 on ebay. I really didn't want to go the aftermarket route.

Hi, we just bought a 2011 Edge SEL but it doesn't have the camera. I'm hoping that if I purchase the OEM camera (BT4Z-19G490-B) that it will plug into existing wiring and work with the dash display center. Has anyone had any success doing this?

As far as trying to get a factory camera to work in the SE, I don't see how you could. The factory camera uses the center MFT screen so how could you have the camera without that screen unless you went aftermarket? That is just the starting point. As far as the SEL without the camera, that is more likely since you have the MFT system but just missing the camera. Sorry I can't answer it more specifically than that but just pointing out the obvious.

chipworkz,

 

 

See my post from Jun 1 on this topic.

 

I attached a picture of an SEL that has the reverse camera with the 4.3'' screen setup without MFT.

 

I know some of the SEL's that aren't upgraded to MFT have a 4.3'' screen just like my SE.

 

I've also seen some of the new XLT F-150s with a 4.3'' screen with reverse camera.

 

I'll try to remove the plastic cover under my hatch on the rear where the camera is installed and see if there is any harness to plug into. Probably not, but worth a shot.

Oh yes I messed that. I was thinking you were talking about the 4.3" screen by the speedometer, not the small one in the center. I am new to the edge too but have done a lot of reading on here since I got it. There was mention that Ford stopped using the one size fits all wire harness so like you say, you just need to see if the wires are there or not number one. The next question will be if the head unit has the module for the camera or not. Then is there anything different in the software and so on. Hopefully it is just a matter of adding the camera in the back but until you dig in or talk to someone with Ford that has all the answers it is hard to tell what all would be missing or is different. Sorry I know I am not adding much value here. :)

Mike,

 

I took apart the cover on the rear lift gate of my SE and couldn't find any wiring for the camera.
