In my case, the sensors on the mirrors are reacting to the steel posts of my car lift. It is speed related.... I have to travel very slowly as I pass by.

Thanks for the input. I back into my garage. Has only happened 4 times but always 4ft short of the garage door opening. Nothing else around the vehicle...nothing anywhere around it. I'm still trying to nail my issue down what is causing this. Thanks again!

Mine does it backing up my driveway which has a slope, but is not steep by any means. This is frustration #2 I've encountered in this forum while looking for the liftgate concern I came in here for.

HotrodLinkin, recall #221S44 My 2021 Corsair Reserve was updated with the software fix. I told service about the 'sudden stop' when backing up 4-5 feet from my garage door opening. Service said this update should take care of that.

Happened twice now. Tight quarters backing out of 8 foot wide doorway. All the cameras and warning tones are active due to the close proximity of the car lift posts (I park under the lift) and the door jambs. I am very careful keeping an eye on the screen making sure car is centered. Out of nowhere I have experienced A sudden mechanical stop, as if I had backed into a wall or a big tree... very jarring. Only thing I can think of is it is speed related; like collision avoidance. I exit the car immediately and don't see anything at all. Your thoughts appreciated, and yes, I will have it checked out by dealer.
My 2020 Aviator can do the same thing. It only does it if I le the car freely roll out of my garage without touching the brakes,because of the close clearance. But if I lightly ride the brakes, that apparently overrides the emergency braking, and it only beeps at me. Yes, I about puked the fir time it happened. Very disconcerting.

Yeah, interesting. I am going to try taping over the sensors next.

I have the same problem with my 2020 aviator. Scares the hell out of you when it activates backing out of the garage. You’d swear you hit something. Try keeping your foot lightly on the brake pedal all the time as you roll out. That’s my theory. It seems to help. It seems the panic braking occurs mostly when I roll out with my foot completely off the brake.

It did save my bacon one time when backing out of an unfamiliar driveway at night. I almost hit the mailbox post directly behind . I did have my foot lightly on the brake then, but I must’ve gotten really close because it stopped the same harsh way. I checked later to make sure I really didn’t hit the mailbox post! So my foot-on-brake theory may not apply in all circumstances.

Thank you for your input. I hate that it happened to you but it's nice to know that I wasn't the only one and not the only model. When it happened it absolutely made me sick even tho I knew nothing was behind me. I don't want to jinx myself but I haven't had this happen since all the software updates to my 360 backup camera.

This inhumane feature is one of the reasons I got rid of the Corsair. Never looked back.
That's a bit of a harsh evaluation, though. It's annoying when it happens, but the truth is that it really doesn't happen frequently (though as I noted in an earlier message, I turn the feature off in certain circumstances where I know it's going to happen as a matter of course, such as when I back into my garage; so yeah, happens infrequently if you turn it off when you *know* it'll falsely trigger).

I hear ya, but Lincoln missed the boat in more than one area. Piano keys for one, should have been a simple rotary knob on the center console. Back at Ford before I retired there was a lot of emphasis on 'human factors engineering'. They seem to have lost it...gone the other way, many examples of frustration.

I must have missed it, what did you get to replace it? PM me if need be.
Hi JB. I don't mind sharing this information. Basically, I took advantage of the current seller's market. The Lincoln dealer bought my Corsair for more than I owed in remaining lease payments. I could have made even more had I sold it to Carvana, but I did not have the title which was held by Ford Credit. You cannot sell a car without the title.

I picked up a 2021 Mustang GT Premium.

So you'll no longer be part of this forum?

too bad there isn't a setting the driver can do to say when at home, turn it off. My Fusion knows when I am approaching home because it auto converts to EV+ mode.

Interesting thing about this to me is I had this issue on my 2020 until they replaced one of my sensors. Never had the issue on the new 2022.
