442 examples of 2019-2022 model Rolls-Royce Phantom flagship sedans recalled for rearview camera issue.
They are equipped with software that makes the Central Information Display (CID) mechanism not to operate correctly.
This could result in the footage from the rearview camera not being visible when the driver places the transmission in reverse “R”.
British luxury marque, Rolls-Royce, has issued a recall for its flagship sedan, the Phantom 8, because of a glitch in the infotainment systems which may not allow display footage from their rearview camera under certain circumstances.
“that when the vehicle is unlocked and/or the driver’s door is opened, the Central Information Display (CID) mechanism may not operate correctly, leading to the CID not raising to the correct position.”
This, according to the report, could result in the footage from the rearview camera not being visible when the driver starts the
vehicle, and then places the transmission in reverse “R”.
NHTSA states that the cause of the fault lies in the operating software, which can “overstress the infotainment screen display as a result of excessive unnecessary opening requests from the coach door module.”
Owners will be notified by First Class mail and instructed to take their vehicle to an authorized Rolls-Royce Motor Cars dealer to have the remedy performed for free.
