    Hello. I just bought a 2007 Expedition EL Limited from a friend who owns the car lot. Nice vehicle, and I'm enjoying it very much.

    On the back bumper, there appears to be a camera. Maybe. Is it park of the park-assist system? There is no video monitor on the dash (no navigation, no camera viewscreen, etc.) There is no evidence of an aftermarket monitor being installed previously.

    Does anyone have any ideas what I'm looking at here? Pictures attached of the bumper and wiring behind the bumper.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sit in the drivers seat.
    Start truck
    Put foot on brake and put in reverse
    look at your rearview mirror what do you see?

    I saw my reflection - nothing more. Behind the mirror is a black box. Above the mirror, attached to the dash (and wires) is another small box with what looks like an antenna and a button.
