Pulled the rear blind spot sensors and the drivers side was swelled up and had water coming out of the connector. Passenger side "looked" ok but that's the side that had the illuminator on constantly. With both of them disconnected and the fuse back in the lights went out, obviously, but all of the other messages went away too other than stabilitrak and side detection.
I plugged them back in and now the drivers side light is dim and flickering while the passenger side is bright and steady illuminated. So I'm betting on 1 or both of the sensors being bad.
Tried to put them back in and this is where the major fun begins. Whoever designed the f*uckng holders molded into the rear bumper decided it was a good idea to NOT keep a solid track for the sensor to follow but instead put a break right in the middle. Perfect placement where the sensor gets 1/3 of the way in and the outermost part of the sensor is rubbing on the inner bumper pushing it off track enough I can't get them back in their slot. It's no wonder techs have to remove the bumper to install these. What a joke. This is pushing me to my limit, never had a car fight me this much.
A simple job that turns into an all day affair is my biggest...BIGGEST pet peeve. Almost ready to send it down the road and I havent even looked into the stabilatrak yet. Once its all back together it's going to the dealer, my time has a dollar figure too and at this point I'm ready to wash my hands of it.
yeah, i hear ya man. Im closeeeee too. $660 To replace my side detection sensor BS, never was hit to cause it, that i know of anyways. I did have my driver mirror hit 3 times and just replaced it finally. but i dont know what sensor is bad, or if its just 1 or not. GM wont check because it will cost me $90 just to pull it into the dang garage. Then, the sensors are on backorder anyways, so cant even get one. I was told by GM that if the sensor isnt changed, it will cause the car to not ever start at some point, or something like that. I kinda want blank after told the cost for a stupid sensor replacement, and god forbid i need more then 1,SMH..
love the car, love the style, but uggg, its just waiting for something else to happen at this point. cant imagine what the cost of the headlights with the halo LED to go bad, probably a cool $500 to change it out. I cant even figure out how to change the passenger sidemirror marker light, car looks stupid remote starting with 1 mirror light illuminated,
Good luck bro, hope everything works out for ya..
