I have had mine go haywire from dirt, and also by using a rear bicycle rack. It gave the message in EVIC and also the light on the switch went on to indicate that it was switched off. It cleared itself up after cleaning dirt +or removing the rear rack.
sorry for the bump, but I also had this message come up today when driving. I assume the recent snowfall here in MI was causing this message. I checked the rear bumper when I got home and there wasn't any snow/ice, and I haven't been rear-ended. If this isn't weather-related, is/are the parking sensors going bad? Odd for a nearly 2 y/o Commander to have the park assist sensors fail.
Snow and the exhaust that "steams" up causes the sensor to get concerned I think. This is a regular occurrence for me (in the winter) and it does not effect anything else. Just a quick wipe and off I go. You should also notice its the right rear that goes off usually before this happens even when there isn't anything behind you. My guess is the condensation from the exhaust causes this issue plus any snow that is being blown off your XK or by your XK as you zip down the road avoiding ditch divers and people who are nervous wrecks on the roads.
So, I'm new here. I did my 5 new member posts in the New Member section. There are pictures and explanation of how I got to the point of this discussion over there.

Does anyone know of a junkyard that has a Commander with the 2 rear red brake lights in the rear bumper ? I would like to buy it so I can put white lenses in place of the red ones. If it is allowed I will include my email.
