For those that have adaptive Cruise control, I learned something last week during a snow storm. I was traveling from Vancouver south towards the Seattle area when just past Bellingham on I5 encountered heavy wet sticky snow. Once out of the small mountainous area ( south of Bellingham) the snow was really coming down and all of a sudden my cruise control ceased working and it was showing an error message I have never seen before. I stopped for gas and noticed that my front bumper had about 1 inch of snow stuck to it and it was enough that I could not read my license plate.

We stayed at a resort casino and my car was valet parked for three days.When we drove home cruise worked fine. I went online and discovered if the radar sensor located on the right-hand side of the bumper ( large circle) is covered with snow, ice or mud the adaptive cruise ceases to work . Moral of this is to keep that area clear of snow ice mud etc

Funny, I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago. Snow/ice build up on the front bumper, got a funny warning light, and the cruise stopped working. Good thing to keep in mind if anyone else is driving in similar conditions or get a random warning light.
