Yup, from my understanding, it's not that rare if you live in a state that gets lots of snow. Ours has gone out multiple times, and this last time, it's no longer covered under the warranty of the warranty repair, and would be about $700 to fix, so I declined it. They did do the inspection and let me know which sensor it was, so I'll replace that myself, perhaps, this year. And I'll seal the living **** out of the connection.This popped up on my Screen today. Anyone have this problem yet? Where are the sensors located on the diesel or are they just the 2 outermost rear bumper sensors
So I'd still have to get the dealer to program the new one, even if I install it, yeah?They are positioned inside the left and right bumper covers immediately behind the rear tires and in direct exposure to road splash. As a result I expect mine will go out again. Hopefully before my GMPP expires.
Ultrasonic backup sensors will work, cross-traffic will not, as they use the radar blind spot sensors. I had to replace one of mine very early in my car's life.If you do buy new ones, silicone the living **** out of them so they are permanently sealed.
We did not think it was worth the cost of getting new ones. We got it more for the backup sensors anyway - those will still work without the blind spot sensors, by the way.
This is very interesting. I've noticed that sometimes the sensors will work just fine; I'll shut the car off, go into a store or something, come back out start the car and the message will appear. I've noticed it's quite random. It pretty obvious that the sensors still work, just not all the time. Very strange. I did have the negative battery cable replaced awhile back. Is it possible it's bad again. That being replaced sure beats the $700 for new sensors (that still may not work).If you haven'tq done it yet, that is a code that the negative battery cable will throw. It's $20 and 2 minutes to replace. If it's not under warranty and you want to throw parts at it I would start there.
