Sensor warnings on cold mornings


PCGB Member
Does anyone else get these warnings on cold (~0C) mornings?

They clear after a few mins driving but I find it odd to even get them. These screenshots were the day after washing the car so the sensors were definitely not dirty. I would have thought this sort of thing would have been sorted out in cold weather testing way before production.

Sounds like condensation but that wouldn't happen coming out of a, relatively, warm garage (?) into the cold outdoors. Although if it was outdoors overnight frost maybe?
Yes, seems like a condensation issue I think. Car is parked on the drive overnight but I do find it odd that it would flash up the errors if this is a known transient state.
They have to cater for global use, in some countries I dare say frost or condensation are out of the question but they'll have bigger bugs or elephant dung on their sensors šŸ˜‰
