Backup camera started to intermittently go out a week ago, now the camera does not work at all. Traced the problem to the tailgate. The wiring connected to the backup camera is being pinched by the tailgate causing a short to happen. Video is no longer being sent from the camera to the screen.

Date of Incident: Apr-09, 2021
Date complaint filed: 11:53 Apr-23, 2021
BACKUP CAMERA WHICH IS A MANDATORY SAFTEY FEATURE STOPPED WORKING. WIRING HARNESS WHERE IT ENTERS THE TAILGATE WAS PINCHED AND WIRES SEVERED. THIS WAS FIXED UNDER WARRANTY. DEALER STATED THERE IS A TECHNICAL BULLETIN TO ROUTE THE WIRING HARNESS DIFFERENTLY TO MINIMIZE THIS ISSUE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF COMPLAINTS ON THE Honda Ridgeline FORUMS OF BACKUP CAMERAS FAILING DUE TO WIRING HARNESS ISSUE. PLEASE INVESTIGATE AS I BELIEVE HONDA SHOULD BE OFFERING AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE WIRING HARNESS AS THIS IS A MANDATORY SAFETY FEATURE THAT IS NOT RELIABLE.
