I'd say clean the windshield if it is a camera equipped car, and clean the front grill by the radar.

Cleaned the grill area, which was really just wet. That seems to have fixed it....

The various sensors can get blocked by snow, extreme rain, dirt, etc. The car will let you know when everything from a parking sensor, to adaptive cruise, to collision avoidance isn't available. First time it happened, I freaked out...then I figured out what was going on and was thankful.

If this is an issue with a relatively low tech version of a self driving car, I wonder how the sensors to self driving cars will truly affected by snow and salt on the roads

Obviously, Thing* will wipe those sensors, lol.

It should be able to drive itself through a car wash.

I have taken it through the automatic brushless touchless carwash several times never had an issue with any of the sensors until this time when I used a garden hose and blasted the grill directly to get the salt out. Maybe that was too much for it.

Interesting. A quick interwebbythingy search indicates salt water absorbs more RADAR than fresh water.
