DETROIT (AP) — Ford is recalling more than 700,000 vehicles in North America because the company says the backup cameras can show distorted images or suddenly go dark.

The recall covers most 2020 versions of Ford’s F-Series trucks and the 2020 Explorer, Mustang, Transit, Expedition, Escape, Ranger and Edge as well as the Lincoln Nautilus and Corsair.

Ford says in documents posted Wednesday, Sept. 30 by the government that a poor electrical connection is causing the problem. Dealers will replace the rearview camera at no cost to owners, according to the company. The recall is expected to start Nov. 7.
