Pillar Camera

From time to time, I have an error code indicating my camera (right or left pillar) is not working. I would not be able to use the auto cruise control. Happens when it is cold outside or when the humidity is relatively high. I made an appointment next week with tesla center (90 miles away.)

I got my Model Y PUP on November '20.

I've read other owners having similar issues with Tesla trying to fix some of them and ignoring others. Should I keep the appointment? And if it takes a more than a day, do they have loaner cars?

First time poster. Any help would be appreciated .

For me, this has occurred dozens of times on the left side. The SC claims it is normal and essentially unfixable, but it immobolizes numerous safety features whenever it happens.

I get it on either side based on the angle of the sun and how bright it is. basically camera is being blinded by the sun or a reflection. I think it’s showing up more right now based on time of year.

For me, it has been left-sided condensation almost every time. My SC (Smithtown, NY) claims this is inherent in the pillar's design, and that replacement will not solve the problem.
