The only problems I've seen are some car washes use a super high powered blower that can force water where it shouldn't go like through the sunroof seals.I was told by a guy that has an Audi, not to take my Jag through an Automatic Car Washers, as it will short out the sensors? What are your thoughts (preferably with facts) on this issue? Thanks.
When you're ready to wash the outside of the vehicle, just lock the car until you are finished.I always take mine to a self-serve (spray) type wash. As I am spraying the car, it repeatedly keeps going through the "lock" sequence where the lights flash and the horn beeps twice.
I Only owned my civic for a day, the garage I bought it from didn't do a brilliant job in cleaning it. OK, it is clean, but not as shiny as it could be. Needs some polish/wax at the least.I only go though a new style carwash at one of our Mobile's with the rolling road. I haven't had a problem yet and I wash/refuel the fleet every Sunday.
On the other hand, we have a C300 in the shop with corroded front and rear bumper sensors.
Apparently there are different grades of weather packs. Found this out when ski club let their triple rig sink at the dock one afternoon. While going through the reconditioning on the three E-TECH G2's we discovered certain color weather packs were 100% dry and others were completely soaked after being 5 feet down for a couple of hours.
