The radar sensor may malfunction due to a faulty installation. This can result in a failure to detect a vehicle in front through the PCS (pre-collision system), which will not provide warnings or brake assistance and the vehicle will not show the driver a message or indicator that the PCS is not working. This may increase the risk of an accident.
