March 2023 Master Warning Light symbol on dashboard and Rear Automatic Braking (RAB) Warning Light symbol on dashboard. Warning Malfunction See Owner's Manual and Warning Parking Sensor Error See Owner's Manual. June 2023 Warning No Key Detected, Check Rear Seat for All Articles and Parking Sensor Off. VDC Settings Menu illuminated light dims while accelerating and returns to normal. Vehicle is available for inspection. Rear sensors are not working to warn of obstructions as designed. Two service dealerships have serviced vehicle. No repairs, only diagnostic testing at one location. DTC C1B56-04 (SONAR CIRCUIT), DTC B2720-66 (REAR SONAR SENSOR). No other inspections have been performed. March, prior to warnings while vehicle was in reverse, another vehicle turned from around a corner. My vehicle automatically made a hard stop to avoid contact with vehicle. Warning messages appeared afterward within same month. I asked service advisor and service manager at separate locations if hard stop could have caused warning malfunction messages but received no response.

The components that failed in multiple instances include the engine shutting off in traffic at a stop light, the failure to accelerate as if the engine is stuck, and the forward collision warning indicator repeatedly coming on while driving with no one is front of me. An accident almost occurred while sitting at the traffic light when the car shut off and while trying to get on the highway and being unable to pick up speed puts our safety at risk. Additionally, the potential for an accident to occur while driving if the engine shuts off or forward collision sensor triggers the Automatic Emergency Braking system. The problems have been reported to the service center and the vehicle is scheduled for inspection and a diagnostic 02/20/23. There were no warning signs in the engine failure incident at the traffic light. The forward collision warning light comes on sporadically. The engine acceleration issue happens at unknown times while pulling off from lights to getting on the interstate ramps.
