    Interesting. A quick interwebbythingy search indicates salt water absorbs more RADAR than fresh water.

    I have taken it through the automatic brushless touchless carwash several times never had an issue with any of the sensors until this time when I used a garden hose and blasted the grill directly to get the salt out. Maybe that was too much for it.

    It should be able to drive itself through a car wash.

    The various sensors can get blocked by snow, extreme rain, dirt, etc. The car will let you know when everything from a parking sensor, to adaptive cruise, to collision avoidance isn't available. First time it happened, I freaked out...then I figured out what was going on and was thankful.

    Cleaned the grill area, which was really just wet. That seems to have fixed it....

    I'd say clean the windshield if it is a camera equipped car, and clean the front grill by the radar.
