My 2011 Solera came with a hand heldremote for the backup camera/mirror and basically all it does it turn it on/off and maybe a couple other things. On the right side of the mirror are some "touch" features that you might try. I think you can turn the signal on/off with the touch feature..

I can't remember right now cause the mh is not close by..
.
Let us know what you find out...

Check to make sure you have not accidentally selected the left or right camera on the monitor (which would give you a "no signal" error since there aren't any). On my Sunseeker the control box is under the dash on the left side. Silver colored metal box.

Same location in the Solera, to the left of the steering wheel. Cover comes off quite easily.

thanks for the various responses. I have not been able to locate the control box.

Nothing visible left of the steering wheel and no single screw to remove panel under steering wheel.

My monitor does not look like the one in the pdf referenced in the back up camera audio thread.

Does anyone that has a monitor like mine in their 2011 solera have any ideas?

There are no markings on the back of the monitor so i cant even determine the make or model number.

When you say left if the steering wheel, where exactly? Up under the dash? In the compartment with the OBD connector? ?

Most likely yes.

Be very careful about what you call a "camera." Your camera didn't go out, it was your monitor.

I had that happen once. I went in to a dealer and said my camera was out. The dealer went to the back of the RV, had the back tore out, and I said,
"what's up with that?" Since I said "camera" they went to the thing in the back.

SO, for future reference, the CAMERA is in the back, the MONITOR is the thing in the front that you read the CAMERA.
