    Having a little minor shopping cart damage to a front bumper end fixed by dealer. (I don’t have any time or else I’d do it myself). I have sensors. Dealer is attempting to charge me $100 to “reset electronics”. I have had my bumper a part a few times and the electronic sensors pulled off, and never had to reset anything on reassembly. Am I correct in that there is nothing to reset and can I call BS on them?

    I had a collision center send my truck to Toyota to get my rear sensors recalibrated after I got rear ended.

    Thanks for the info. I have a 2017. Wonder if 2018 is more complex electronically.

    I really only did it just in case something was wrong from the accident and it didn’t cost me down the road. Their insurance paid.

    Its probably more of a recalibrate than a reset if anything. If you dont do it, id think unplugging the battery for 5-10 min would "reset electronics".

    Good call. Didn’t think about that.
