    S5 Cabriolet Reverse Camera Issue

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey guys! My dad has a B8 S5 Cabriolet from 2011. Recently, the reverse camera has been sometimes working and sometimes not working. I ran diagnostics on the car with Rosstech when the camera was not working and unfortunately I don't have the codes with me, but one of the codes read that the circuit to the reverse camera was open. I checked the fuse box in the righthand compartment of the trunk to see if it had blown, but it hadn't. Any ideas of what the issue could be?

    S5 Cabriolet Reverse Camera Issue

    Itís probably the harness that connects to the camera in the trunk lid. Had the same issue a few years ago. There is a TSB and Audi replaced the harness with a new one.

    I had the same issue. Like RVJ said, there is a TSB on a bad wiring harness. The dealer should be able to get it replaced. Have had no issues since it was replaced.
