    I had it happen one time and the dealer checked it said nothing was wrong. I had been on the freeway, traffic was bad I had cruise control set at max distance, but because of traffic closed the gap, like the rest of traffic and kept going. This made the whole TSS system error out and it took a while to reset.

    I'm imagining they stick those black and white squares on a wall. Move the truck a certain distance from the squares. Hit a button and the truck computer recalibrates the sensors based on reading the squares. Gimme that $700.

    It's not as simple as that.

    Can you elaborate on what happens during calibration then?

    Is it more or less this? https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2018/MC-10145739-9999.pdf

    While I may have dummied it down, jokingly, once you figure out where to place the vehicle, is there anything more than putting the target up and executing the calibration routine?

    There are two different calibrations performed. One is for the millimeter radar sensor and the other is for the camera. Actually three if you count the BSM recalibration. Basically there are targets set out at very precise locations. Most of the time is spent measuring and setting up the targets. The BSM and radar use metal triangle targets and the camera uses a visual black and white square target. Once the targets are in place it's a fee minute job from there.

    The link you sent looks right but I didnt see any targets.
