2012 Ford F-150 Lariat 3.5L (T) 6-spd (6R80) — 1FTFW1ETXCFA52416

2012 F150 rear camera inop, new Ford camera installed and it now works however the image is reversed. Service information doesn't say anything about programming or configuring for a 2012, 2013 does say that it needs to be configured. Used the IDS to try to configure. It gives me the option but the test is aborted after a few seconds. Unsure if it aborts because something is wrong or if it aborts because that test is not supported on 2012 F150.

ETA-BCM is setting a B115E:49 Internal camera failure with the new camera installed. It had a C1001 with the old camera. I will update again Monday when I get back to this truck.

If the camera is malfunctioning there should be a code. RVC configuration or Lin new module initialization would be the function. Typically when needed it triggers a B115E:55. Make sure the application is correct as well, sometimes the wrong camera can be installed and cause issues.

It's the camera itself. I had that issue with a lincoln rear view camera, turns out the camera was physically upside-down. Exchanged it, ask was well.

B115E:49 Camera Module: Internal Electronic Failure : CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test. If DTC B115E:49 is retrieved again, INSTALL a new rear video camera.

While I do not have an answer to your situation, this problem is also being discussed in Forscan's forum. Maybe you'll gleam some insight there also. forscan​.​org/forum/viewtopi…

Installed 2nd new camera today, both from Ford. Image quality is better and no longer reversed. Grid lines also show on the screen. And as service info said for a 2012, did not have to configure the camera.
