Default Backup Camera Fan

Anyone know where the sensor is that makes the backup camera fan turn on? My fan just keeps on running and won't shut off. I was told there is a sensor somewhere.

In my '90, I believe there was no sensor. It had a manual switch on the dash that you activated if the camera fogged up.

Michael, make sure you have the Camera Defog in the off position. It is located in the overhead dash. I included a diagram from the owners manual. It is #8...

I'm having my wife check to see if the defog switch is in the on position. We just had some service done to it. It wouldn't surprise me if it got turned on. When I went to pick it up the other day someone had turned on the musical horn so when I powered it up the horn started to play. I bet that is the problem. Thanks all.

That is the reason why a good BB Driver or pilot does a visual check of all the switches and see that they are in their proper position. A checklist is also a big help.
Master switch - ON
A/T switch - ON
Heat controls - AS RQD.
Antennas - DOWN and LOCKED/STOWED
ETC, ETC,
to make a checklist one gets to know his switches, coach and its back-ups pretty well.

I couldn't agree more. My little dog Joey likes to practice his driving skills when I'm out and steps all over various rocker switches.

When we are on vacation, I have a nasty habit of sitting my set of coach keys on the console below the driver's side window. Every now and then, the keyfobs end up bumping switches. Guess which button they seem to love deactivating the most: The engine retarder switch! It's always nice to make that first stop at an intersection and you don't get the expected braking power of the retarder!!

Suffice it to say, checking that switch is now on my 'preflight checklist'!

My cat used to unerringly find the clearance light switch and turn it on. I put a plastic cap over top of it.
