    I can't seem to find reference to this. When I put my 85D into reverse the rear sensor lights up red and says stop even when there is nothing behind me. Does anyone have this problem?

    Hey, congrats on receipt of your car!!!

    when I put my bike rack on the back that's the unfortunate reality. Is there any dirt or whatnot on one of the sensors?

    All is clean on the sensors. I will do a little experamenting today. I will let you all know how it goes. I install my HPWC yesterday and it works well.

    Faulty sensor, maybe disconnected sensor. Either way, service centre time. Further, quality control should have picked this up. Not cool to use an Elonism.

    Only time I had this problem was when sensors were covered by ice from freezing rain.
