Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

You have to download and install the software. I forget where I got it from but if you do a websearch, you'll find it on another BMW forum. You have to have a ludicrous amount of hard drive space available for full functionality. 500GB if I recall. You'll need an e-net to OBD2 cable to interface wit...

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Camera reprogrammed and working fine finally. Enet cable and ISTA+ is the way to go.

Re: All Weather Floor Mats

I have the OEM rubber mats. I wouldn't recommend them. They stain and are mostly gray in color, so they look kind of bad when they are used. Black rubber is the way to go.

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

No problem. I may have to amend my post about the orientation. I just put it back in the way it came out. I still have my old camera with a clear lens if you want it. It never clouded up. Something in the circuitry probably failed. If you pay shipping, I’ll send it out. I took it apart before. There...

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Downloaded ISTA+ and waiting on the e-net cable to arrive. Should be able to calibrate the camera myself.

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Well... Almost fixed. The camera works, but the red and green guide lines are kind of aiming skyward. The camera is properly installed. I think it's a calibration issue. Now to figure out how to do that.... Will post it once I have the answer.

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Replaced camera with a new one. Problem solved. They don't make it easy. The camera isn't held in by screws... Once you remove the rear bumper and unplug the proximity sensors, the lights and the camera, the camera itself is attached to the bumper in a little plastic bracket that is held on with dou...

Re: 2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Charging the 12v battery resulted in no change. Next step is to replace the camera since the module seems to be working.

2015 i3 Rex rear camera failure

Hello, Recently, my 2015 i3 back up camera has stopped working. At first, it displayed gray lines with an orange traffic cone. Then sometimes it would display a garbled image for just a moment and the screen would go black, but still contain the proximity sensor data on the screen. Now, it never dis...
