    I had it last February while driving in a blizzard. Snow blocked radar

    I didn't know there was an error message for camera, but interesting to know.
    I think the blocked radar message refers to the black square below the front license plate (if you have one), maybe I should say below the 278 dimples.

    Never noticed a sensor at that location. The measage was refering to a camera which likely is integrated in the device connected to the rear view mirror.

    You can feel (and see) the wires behind the square.
    I believe the camera sees the road lines and the front radar senses vehicle ahead

    Back to the manual I guess, not now-later. (Snowbirds to perform in Nanaimo in a few minutes)

    Looked for the square below where the license plate goes and I don't see a square.. There are the holes where the license plate frame was but no sensors. There is something in the Hyundai emblem but I believe that this is an LED. 20190814_220100.jpg

    It’s just below the dimpled area, about 10 cm wide and 8 cm high, but in your case I can’t see it for sure. Maybe you don’t have FCA. Or at least only camera assist which will not offer braking I don’t think.

    Its part of the adaptive cruise control system, I guess its only available on the Ultimate model in the US.

    I believe that FCA does brake the car. That radar is most likely for the adaptive cruise control.
    BTW, I got the "Camera obscurred" warning again today.. Windshield was fogging up this morning as it was very humid and I got the warning but it went away by itself.

    I did some research and it appears that the radar is used for pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control while the camera is used for the FCA..
