Defect / Noncompliance Description

*Describe the defect or noncompliance:
The power circuit in the display audio unit was improperly designed. When the engine is started with an ignition key, the cranking can cause the battery’s state of charge to drop, which may prevent the display audio from booting up, resulting in the failure to display the rearview camera image.

*Describe the safety risk:
If the display audio unit does not boot up, the rearview camera image will not display, which may affect the driver’s view and increase the risk of a crash or injury.

Describe the cause:
The power circuit in the display audio unit was improperly designed.
