Mtg my 4' wide basket carrier brings up a "reverse" problem. The rear 'PDC' & rear 'Cross Traffic sensors' are triggered to red and shortly full auto braking stops the car. (Atlas SEL Premium)

I can turn off the rear PDC but the rear Cross Traffic is still stopping any backing up. (Because it sees the hitch mt'd basket carrier)


Do I need to provide a 'seudo' trailer electrical load across the 7 pin to end the Atlas seeing an "about to happen" false collision?

Any help on this would be much appreciated. :frown2:

Regards my post above:

I have since incorporated Owners Manual pg 256 in solving this problem with no success. ie Unchecking Blind Spot Monitor & unchecking Rear Traffic Alert pg 256.

Solved:

Menu - Vehicle - Settings - 'Assistance Systems' Uncheck "Blind Spot"

'Parking & Maneuvering' uncheck "Rear Traffic Alert" ....... uncheck "Maneuver Braking"

So this is one way to have a hitch supported flat basket cargo carrier auto & abruptly not bring you to a halt when backing up.

Our Atlas SEL Premium InforTainMent screen menus seem to hide line items................. sometimes hard to get the next page of that menu.

I just press the button with the image of a traffic cone on it (behind the parking brake) to disable the sensors when I am reversing with my cargo carrier connected. This is easier than going through the menus in my opinion.
