Side Camera Malfunction?

just tinkering with this feature in the garage this evening & got this notification. rear view works great, top view works great ... did I do something wrong or will it not function in a closed in garage environment?

Did you resolve the problem? I have top view, rear view, and side view. All work great except the side view. When I press sideview button, I can briefly see the passenger side camera on the screen, left side is blue then after about 3 seconds screen goes out and get the camera malfunction. Don't know if its a faulty left camera or maybe the harness?

This is a common fault with the Sideview system. The cable eventually allows moisture ingress and this corrodes the connection to the camera. It usually affects the left hand camera for some reason. The only way to repair it is to replace the length of wiring from the camera to the TRSVC unit in the boot/trunk of the car. See my lengthy post here where I went through the process of replacing the harness and camera as that too had corroded pins.

Very common fault, mine was replaced under warranty along wth the wiring for it. There was another thread here very recently on it. They replaced both the left camera and the harness in mine and did full software update.

EDIT: Mine was under warranty so cost me nothing
