Northville, MI

rear (backup) sensor intermittently inoperative (led to non-injury crash); default factory settings error. left home yesterday evening, backup sensor was working (alerted driver to truck in drive and tree near driveway). drove to destination (<2 m.) and parked vehicle on street. left destination about 3 hours later, bound for another residence to pick up our daughter (.5 m). it was a very dark and rainy night, no street lights. drove into residential driveway, then backed out of driveway. upon backing onto street, rear bumper of pacifica hit front bumper of small, dark blue, lincoln sedan parked on street. the backup sensor did not work at all. there were no injuries, and only minor damage (although needless) to the bumpers. however, this is potentially a very dangerous equipment failure. we checked the control menus. *factory settings* was *off*, and, within these settings, *park assist system* was *off*. we (my husband or i) had not changed the settings, and, as mentioned, the sensor had worked earlier that evening. the same ignition key was used for all driving that evening. we checked the settings because of a similar incident two weeks earlier (see below). two weeks ago, after a short drive from home (<3 m.), we noticed the backup sensor was not working when we were backing out of a parking space, although it had been working earlier in the day. as in the later incident, the *factory settings* setting was *off*, and, within these settings, *park assist system* was *off*. we (my husband or i) had not changed the settings. we were befuddled as to the reason this happened. we set the *factory settings* back to *on*, and confirmed that this reset the *park assist system* to *on*. the rear sensor then seemed to be working okay, until the recurrence of the problem last night. i will talk to the dealer about this problem tomorrow (closed today), so i have no info on mfg actions to correct this failure. *nm

in my 2011 t&c, the backup camera is too dim to see in daylight. it can be used at night and it's moderately useful on a dark day. but in full sunlight the camera screen just cannot be seen well enough to be useful. i have the rbz radio in it. i had the same radio in a 2010 t&c and at first that camera was just as bad. i found s technical service bulletin showing a software update for that problem on the internet, and once the dealer updated the software, the backup camera was dramatically better. now, i buy a 2011..., and they seem to have gone backward. it's just as bad or even worse than the 2010. i took it back to the dealer and they fiddled with it and checked other vehicles, but they said they are all the same, even though they admit it's too dim to use in sunlight and that the software update they did on my 2010 made a huge improvement. unfortunately, they say there is nothing they can do until chrysler sends out either a solution or a software update doing to my 2011 radio, the same fix they did to my 2010. for a vehicle that has a sticker price getting close to $40,000, i find this disappointing. i like everything else about the van, but the fact that it's so good otherwise just makes this problem even more frustrating! *tr
