Hi Everyone,
I have a 2016 2.0T Limited Adventure Package SF. I have 66000km and bought it used with 50000. I have had an error message now three times. The first time I took it in they said it needed to be re-aligned. Problem went away after that all seemed fine. Then I was pulling my 17ft boat and it came back again. Then a couple days later it was ok. Just the other day it happened again and has not fixed itself. Are you suppose to turn off the BS system when towing or it messes with the sensors? Anyone else have the same problem?
Thanks,
Jason

I had mine fail before and needed to be recalibrated and it was fine after that for quite awhile, but recently it started giving an error when it's raining and I'm driving on highway home. It does work again after a shutdown/restart.
I don't think you need to disable it for towing

Blind side modules are essentially small radar arrays located in the quarter panels of most vehicles. Although they are not looking at items directly behind the vehicle, they can detect things such as trailers under the right conditions and depending upon the profile of the trailer. I would not consider any issues that occur only when towing as being a problem. I would expect that the system will see the trailer at times and be unhappy about it. If the problem persists without the trailer then it would be a good idea to have it checked.

Shortly after I got my 2016 SFS I would get an occasional BSD error and I was not pulling a trailer. I did have the trailer hitch and harness on that car. The problem ended up being the towing wire harness interfering with the sensor. The dealer rerouted the harness and the problem never came back.

My 2015 disable BDS when I have my bike rack on with bikes. However, my wife's 2014 never disables it regardless of what's on the hitch. Also, my 2015 disabled in heavy rain several times but my wife's 2014 never did----even in heavy snow.

Disabling for rain or snow is unusual but I suppose possible if it is torrential rain / very heavy snow. If you have a heavy buildup of snow, ice, road salt, dirt etc.. on the exterior body where or near to where the arrays are located then yes, they can disable. I live in a heavy snow location and only had it disable once since purchased in 2015. Cleaning heavy road salt from the body solved that. When we had an addition added to our home I had the plumbers run a hot water feed to a separate external spigot so that I would at least hose the bodies down even in winter conditions.

So now I have had this same problem happen two more times. They took the bumper off and one of the modules was problematic. Now I will have to see if I can use it with my boat behind me. The weird thing was it gave me an error, and then I couldn't turn it on or off on the dash. It just stayed off. The last two times it needed calibrating was when I was carrying my boat with the system off. Here is to hoping...

When I have my bike rack with bikes on it it will confuse the BDS sometimes. My wife's SFS it will do it rarely and mine will do it after 10 miles. For a short trip with bikes it's no big deal but one time we went to OHIO and BDS went off 20 miles into the 350 mile trip.

So if you pulled over shut your car off, and turned it back on would your system come back on? Mine stayed off and I couldn't turn it back on even with the button. It didn't work until I took it in the dealership to re-calibrate the system.

So I had my car in (still under warranty) to get the BSD system looked at and this time left it with them for a couple of days. This time instead of recalibrating it they replaced the right module and reset it. Decided to pull my boat again on the weekend, and after an hour of driving on came "Check the BSD system" again. (The system was on at the time) Same symptoms the button on the dash to turn on and off doesn't work and the system is completely off. Has anyone that has the BSD system ever had the same symptoms? I am going to have a relook through the thread as I recall a guy saying that the dealership changed the wiring location as it was effecting the modules. Maybe that is the ticket.

Hi,
The problem that I am having is it won't turn back on until I take it back to the dealership. I even unhooked the battery once and the error was still there and I couldn't turn the system on the dash. It won't light up. There were two times that I turned off the system before I towed my boat, and still got the error. But I have never got the error without pulling my boat that is the weird thing.
