FCW and BSW Unavailable warning on dashboard?

I was pulling into my garage and this message pops up all of the sudden, when I restart the Jeep it's back to normal - anyone else experience this glitch?

FCW (Forward Collison Warning) and BSW (Blind Spot Warning)

Re: FCW and BSW Unavailable warning on dashboard?

I have had some very, very occasional "false" messages for that type in the last three years (maybe four or five total), but most of the time, it was just because the radar dome was getting dirty. It should also be checked that it's not lose and moving slightly.

Re: FCW and BSW Unavailable warning on dashboard?

Update:

Just talked to my Service person, he said I'm not the first one to ask this question, because of the cold temps it can cause that issue, it's currently in the teens here and I was at a car wash earlier too. He said just restart the car and it will go away - which I did previously.

Did this happen when you may have had ice on the sensors?
I get it all the time driving in bad weather...
I just let the moose with aluminum foil coats fend for themselves when it goes out.

Re: FCW and BSW Unavailable warning on dashboard?

It also depends on whether you are applying brakes at the time.
