I recently washed my car, and for the first time ever, as I was cleaning the radar area, the radar moved. I didn't think anything of it as I pulled it back into place. Problem started the next day as I was driving and the radar flashed "Brake" twice when nothing was approaching. I thought it was a fluke as it happens now and then, but shortly after, the "Radar Obstructed" message popped up. I took it to Honda and they said either they had to screw it back into place and re-calibrate it or have to replace the sensor if it was bad. I got the call saying that it was just out of place and they secured it and re-calibrate it and it was good to go. As I drove the car onto the highway, the message popped up again so I took it back, but it was close to closing so I have to drop it off on Monday. I really don't want to replace that sensor as I heard it is retails over $1k and the service guy told me that the computer said it "completed" after they re-calibrated it so the sensor should still be good. Has anyone ever run into this problem by just washing the car and had the radar move?
