Q: What does the Service Front Camera message mean? Is this covered under warranty? 2015 GMC Acadia

asked by on January 12, 2017

I had an oil change and when I got home the service front camera message light went on. Is this covered under warranty? And if not, is this an expensive repair? Thank you

My car has 10000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - quite often this message simply means the camera lens for the front camera has dirt, a leaf, or some other debris on the lens, and the camera cannot function properly. Wiping the lens area with a soft cloth or paper towel and mild cleaner will clean it. If cleaning the lens doesn’t solve the problem, I would have it checked by your Buick dealer - this should be covered by the new car warranty.
