Re: Backup assist (awdnut)
Thanks to all who replied. No kid or dog, no incline and the camera and bag are not magical. I suppose that it may be the old "post hoc ergo proctor hoc" thing, you know, one thing happens followed by another and the normal conclusion is that they are casually related. However, I have backed up in the rain before without this happening, and living in the Boston area, there has been plenty of rain to test it on recently. I think I will put the bag w/camera back in the trunk and see if it happens again without the rain. I haven't taken the time to try to find out how the sensor works-but there has to be some form of energy that is being detected and, if its being generated by the car with the sensor detecting the return, what came to mind was a leak. The camera has a metal alloy, perhaps titanium, body which certainly would have the ability to reflect most verities of energy. However, all that being said, I think I pointed out that this was not a big deal as the alarm was easily silenced. I will let you all know what happens when I put the bag back in.
