The dealership said they didn't encounter this issue but were the 2012 is new to us it may lead followups down the road. I wasn't sure if the Park Aid was something new, thought it was existing in other models already.

Most likely the wire connecters were not attached properly to the wires. It happens. It could make it past instal but weak connections would burn the contact causing intermittent or failed connection. Not likely anything more than a one off issue.

I've had the message come up 2-3x now - once during a heavy snowfall and the other 2x when we had a severe cold snap (-20C ). Wondering if it has to do with snow/ice buildup either outside of OR behind the sensor).

In all occurrences, the message disappeared on the next startup after the car sat for a bit.

Anyone have a photo of what these harnesses look like? I the cold wet climate here in Newfoundland I would be curious if it should some how be winterized.

Did the replacement wiring harness fix the problem? We're dealing with it now...

I have had this error now for 4 days every time I drive. It flashes when I slow down to stop and again when I speed up from a stop. I was told that the diagnostic says the module needs to be replaced. They are waiting on the part. Suddenly it worked again for a whole trip, but after restarting the car, it went back to the error code. (Figures I am 700 miles past the warranty coverage...)

I've had that and similar messages come up a few times but always when I start the car with my OBDII dongle connected. I can shut the car off and try to restart but most times I still get the message or a similar one. As soon as I remove the dongle and restart the messages go away and there is no issue.

Hey everyone,

If you're still experiencing this issue, making an appointment at your dealership so they can inspect is a great first step. Additionally, I'm happy to see how I can help as well; just send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name. We'll go from there!

I brought it into the dealership and paid for them to replace the module. 2 days out of the shop it started again. It seems to only happen in cold weather. They took it all day and couldn't replicate the error while it was hooked up to the computer. (because it was warm that day) a couple days later we had a cold snap so I brought it in with the error up and had them connect it. They now claim they have no idea what the problem is and are "contacting Ford". I guess I'm out the $$$ for the repair, cuz it's still not working.

Well, I'm kind of worried. I've had intermittent problems with the Park Assist sensors. This time I managed to get it all on "film". I'll have to take this to my local dealer when I get some other service done. I'm in the market for an oil change, inspection, and trim replacement...
