I have to disable mine after power washing the truck at a car wash when it is cold. The sensors are obviously clean and no ice on their surface. After it sits in the heated shop overnight it is back to normal. I assume that one or more of the sensors are getting moisture in somewhere, which is causing the issue. When I wash the truck in the shop with just a hose and bucket I do not have the problem.

I'm with ya on that also . It's too cold for me to wash my SRT8 car . I've been letting the local car wash get all the road salt and grime off of it here recently and haven't had a bit of problem with mine .

I had the same thing happen to me the other day after a wash. Went out to see if they were dirty. but there was nothing. I think that water got into the sensor.
The next day everything was back to normal.

I spoke too soon. I pressure washed mine last week when it was around -18 Celcius and I had malfunctioning sensors with the "clean sensors message" for about a day.

I get that message all the time. I think my system is off more than its on lately. I don't really pay much attention to it anyways. I've had way to many people in for bumper repairs because their backup system didn't detect something.

I posted this under another thread on the forum its the same issue here.
It maybe ice, but what ever it is, it shouldn’t be happening and it doesn’t happen on all Rams with Park assist. If your still in warranty take it to the Dealer and tell them you want a ticket open with Chrysler TAC (Technical Assistance Centre). If enough people do it might get fixed. Don’t leave it to your dealer to contact Chrysler, they get paid on warrenty work to replace the parts not fix the problem. Here is my story.... (and before anyone flames me, I LOVE my truck)


I have a 2010 that I had custom built to order in July 10. The first day it went below 0C/32F (2011), I had issues with the sensors. I have had them all replaced 4 times and had the truck in the shop at least 7 times for it. The local dealer said they see this all the time with RAMs but have no idea what the cause is. I was told by the service manager after the 3rd time my truck was in for this that an incident ticket was put in with Chrysler Canada's TAC.

What I forgot, dealers make their money on warranty work doing rip and replace. So they have been doing the rip and replace of the sensors with no focus on trying to determine the root cause. When I asked what happens when the truck comes out of warranty they up front said they will charge me 300 a sensor. As a side note, if anyone lives in my area stay away from this dealer, I have never met a General Manager who openly hates his manufacture and customers like this guy does.

Sorry, back to my saga...

My warranty is up in another 1500 miles and again the sensors are acting up, so after showering following my discussion with the dealership, I called Chrysler direct to complain. No TAC ticket was put in by the Dealer, so they had no record.... So I opened on myself in Jan. No one has been able to identify the issue and on the weekend, when it was occurring and they could have actually done diagnostics, the dealerships GM said they no longer needed or wanted my business and refused to look at it, after they had been driving it like they owned it all week...

I love my truck, I loved my Jeeps, I loved my first car a 73 Duster with a 340, even my Dad's K-car that I learned to drive in. I have been a lifer when it comes to Chryslers but I told them today, my experience with my local dealer and this reoccurring issue that everyone claims doesn’t exist has me questioning what my next vehicle will be.
