How is the cruise control malfunctioning?

When you push the button, the symbol on the dash flashes on/off in a second. I would hit the set button and it would sometimes set it but not show it being on from the dash which was a little scary because I thought it was off at the time.

It was working fine a few days ago.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the malfunction warning doesn't come back!
As an update, the part came in yesterday (took ~30 days...) and they finished replacing the part today. I still have to pick it up but let's hope there aren't any other issues.

It sounded like the forward facing radar (in the front bumper) shorted out due to moisture getting in, but I might not have all of the info yet.

I'll edit this post with any updates, hopefully it won't take too long to get the part...
I got it this morning too, and has happened in the past and went away...

I thought it was maybe condensation or something blocking the camera behind the rear view mirror, cause lane assist also didn't work...

Adaptive cruise still works fine though...

Wow! So you left your car at the dealer for 30 days? Did they give you a loaner?

I would be afraid to drive a vehicle that is capable of automatically applying full panic braking without driver action with the system warning light on. This feature (along with lane assist automation) will keep me from buying any new vehicle unless they can be fully disabled. I would be surprised if a dealer would release the car with the system warning present (liability concerns).

The standard protocol in this situation is for the system to default to off. For instance, if your ABS light comes on due to a fault, the the ABS would be disabled. I would expect the same to be true of AEB.

I would hope that the feature would be disabled if a fault is detected, but they did give me a loaner to drive while the part was on order for that reason.

Possible Noise from brake system when on e-Pedel, when stop and go.

After car is stopped on e-Pedel, and when I try to go using Gas - Pedel, I hear a click - sound / Noise.

Possible Brake pads trying to release brakes. (Loose pad / Shims?)

This was not there when car was new. Car has 2.5k miles.

I have to check out through dealer.

(2018 Leaf SL - Also car has Electric Hand brake)
