Bakup/parking assist issue on 08 WK

Hi all - I have an 08 WK and my backup assist sensor/system is acting goofy.

Symptoms: none of the sensors go off when objects are well within range. Initially there was some ice/dirt built-up on the rear bumper during the first snowfall of the year, which caused the sensors to go off intermittently, which is understandable. Now with the car cleaned off, none of the sensors report any obstacle and no message is thrown on the dash about servicing the system.

We've had very wet/slushy snow the last few days noticed last night that there was a lot of it packed in the drivers side rear bumper, next to the driver side sensor. I cleaned it out last night, but still some ice caked up in there.

Aside from some snow/water that might have gotten into some of the connections, and other ideas about what to check or look for? Anyone experience this before? How can I diagnose this system?

Start with the dumb stuff first, did you hit the button to turn the sensors off when there was ice on it? Forget to turn it back on? - I've done that...
