"Collision Avoidance Not Available" on start up
Anyone else seeing this error message pop up? I get it about 50% of the time lately, always on a cold start. It's at the dealer for the 2nd time for this today.

I have had this intermittent issue also

I had it pop up once last week. That was the first time though.

Can you both confirm you only get the something right at start up?

Ford had my truck five days last week three days this week and it's still not solved. The service writer just let me know I should plan to keep this rental truck through the weekend. No bueno.

Yep, have had a couple of times. Always on cold start. Also affects adaptive cruise control. If you shut off the truck and then restart it will work.

I had it this morning. It was cold start about 30 degrees outside. What were temps for you guys? maybe a weather related issue?

Mine was right at start up. I believe the motor was cold too. Hasn’t done it since but I have been traveling and not driving it much.

maybe the sensor had frost on it... With electronics I think you could spend a lifetime chasing cold start gremlins.

If there isnt a CEL on, or a code, the dealer is useless.

The dealer says they finally solved it. They said on start-up the module (which I don't know) wasn't getting a signal from one of the yaw-pitch-roll type sensors. They reset the module that has the sensor in it and have not gotten the error message since. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

these electronic trucks follow zero logic :rofl: get your extended warranties paid boys!

I appreciate all you guys posting the resolutions here... it will help down the road for sure.

If you can get the print out from the service with the mechanics notes that would be cool too.
