Door Sensor Issues

We had our 2018 MX wrapped fully in Xpel Ultimate. But now I am seeing issues with the door sensors. I will not be parked next to anything but they are registering objects and not opening fully. Has anyone else seen this? Is this a wrap issue or firmware?

Maybe an issue with the sensors. I have Xpel Ultimate full wrap too, but no phantom objects detected.

Who did you wrap with? Are they extremely experienced with tesla, and specifically a model X? I wonder if it's a konwledge/experience issue.

When I spoke with the SC, they informed me the sensors are behind the plastic trim at the bottom of the doors. The XPEL installer did not wrap these sections.

Service Center visit #3 scheduled for this week. 1 visit per month so far...

Really?

You have a third party work on your car, cover your sensors in a wrap and then imply Tesla are at fault because you feel the need to mention your third visit to a SC.

Back to the wrap company.

My clear wrap has cutouts for the sensors and I've had zero problems. Just sayin'

Dude calm down. These are not the front and rear bumper sensors (which have cut outs and work fine), they are the sensors in the doors. Tesla support told me on the phone as long as the lower black panels are not wrapped on the doors (which they are not), then it is not the wrap.
