Hello - most often, this message appears when something blocks the rear parking assist sensors on the rear bumper (dirt, snow, bumper stickers, trailer towing gear, etc.). Wipe off the sensors with a damp or soapy paper towel, drive forward 15-20 mph a short distance, and the message should go away. If it persists, there may be a problem with one or more sensors, and a visit to the dealer would be required.
