Hi all - I have just got the SEL Atlas R-line. 300 Mile’s and tonight I got a ‘front assist not available’ ⚠ - I tried resetting this function on the control panel - but don’t appear to have solved anything. Has anyone else experienced this issue - thoughts? Or is it a trip back to the dealer?

Same thing happened to me yesterday, after a battery replacement on Friday. The battery replacement itself was necessitated because, per the dealer, VW original equipment (car is only 16 months old) was inadequately sized for the power demands of the car's systems. The dealer supposedly installed a more powerful batter. Sounds like a design defect, to me. Losing the Front Assits now adds insult to injury.

2018 Atlas with 22K and this just happened to me last week. Took it to the dealer and once they confirmed there was no front damage they proceeded to re calibrate the sensor and the warning sign went away. No cost as it is under warranty. Problem solved.

I got it twice. Once was road salt drying over the sensor/camera....the other was snow.

Oh, and just cleaning the sensor and camera didn't help. It required a restart of the vehicle before it would work again.
