In the past, I've noticed when we backing out of our driveway, the rear parking sensors flash red, when there's no danger of scraping the ground. The front sensors also pick up parking curbs.
Twice again today, RAB trigged an auto stop when we were part of the way in the street, which caused a hazardous situation with cross traffic.
The sensors "see" things lower than needed, including the road itself!
After the car dead stopped us in cross traffic, it's a safety issue now.
The RAB system seems to be extra sensitive after the rear cross traffic beeping is active. This time my cat was the passenger, but it's always a strong jolt, like we have hit something! I was hoping the trip to the dealer for service last week (I mentioned the problem) and/or the software update would fix it, but no!
Attached is a pic of where it halted our car the 2nd time around when I was trying to back out of our driveway. As you can see there's plenty of space above the ground and the ground is what has the red bar on the display.
This is supposed to be a safety system, but it's causing a road hazard. We could easily be side swiped as we are unable to move until we reset the car.
