2011 wk2 blind spot sensor failing
My GC Overland has an overly sensitive blind spot sensor on the driver side. It is continuously triggering the blind spot indicator and causing the beeping warning when turning from picking up erroneous objects.
I took it in to the dealer. I'm over warranty.. 110k km. I bought it at 6k km as a demo. So 4k km out of warranty. They want to charge...... $1600 to fix this. I don't think the whole technology package including ACC, park assist, forward collision warning costs that much.
It is only the one sensor. Diagnose shows error codes and it is excessively warm. I've disabled blind spot monitoring.
This bugs me to not have it all working. I love the GC so I'm looking for an economical way to resolve this. I was thinking maybe $200 but at 1600 that's excessive.
It makes me wonder about maintaining this GC out of warranty with all of the electrical capabilities - air suspension, seats, Windows, etc... Maybe trade in for another but that's also extreme. What made me more worried was as I was driving I got another error that FCW was disabled while using the ACC and it advised me to clean the sensors. They weren't that dirty. Is it all tied together???
Since this is the first year of this model an I on the leading edge of when stuff starts to fail?
Any ideas on repair alternatives are appreciated.
