Turned around, and dropped it off once more; they will start a STAR case, and possibly remove all the interior to check all the wiring. The technician told me it is very possible that they will have to put a new wire harness.

    The car has been 4 times to the dealership for this issue; I wonder how many it will take.

    I have to say this stuff makes me so happy that I refused to take anything but a stripped Pop. I keep cars so I can’t imagine ever owning anything with so much extra stuff.
    16’ 500X Pop, Rosso, 1.4T/M6, 18” O.Z. 45th Anniversary wheels, H&R springs, Momo shift knob, MPX Throttle Body...
    13’ 500 Abarth, Bianco, 17" M5, (Wife's)

    My 16 AWD Easy was doing this constantly (multiple times per trip) last year. I took my 500x into the dealer last fall and ran into the same problem of nothing was stored about the blind spot monitor system and they could not do much as it would not fail while they test drove it. They did do another task for me at that time and that was to flash the radio to the latest software so I could up date my GPS Maps (tip - plug the USB Flash Drive with new maps into the USB socket in the arm rest, not the one in the dash when updating the maps). Now the blind spot errors now occur once every few weeks.

    I tried to figure out a pattern of what might be causing it and determined that it was not a wiring issue, as I could go over the roughest roads and fly over railroad tracks and not cause the “Blind spot monitoring assist temporarily unavailable” message. It did seem to be sensitive to the humidity level outside (occurred more often on cold dry days than warm humid days or rainy days). Turning often would seem to cause the errors, but the errors would still occur while driving in a straight line. The failure almost always had the lights in the mirrors flash for under a second and the system would be back to normal in no time. I did crawl around underneath my 500x to see if the sensors were mounted solidly and the general shape of the wiring and found nothing, wire are secured and in good shape, connectors fully seated, etc.

    Knowing that the radio handles a number of settings for rest of the car tells me that the radio is talking over the CAN Bus to the other systems in the car. I am wondering if maybe the radio was interfering with communications for the blind spot monitoring system. The radio was full of glitches before the update. After this update, my radio behaved much better (e.g. the clock would stay on 12 hour time setting for months, not the days that it it did before the update and the number of false errors that would get reported almost totally disappeared).
